Another Significant Advancement in PP-RCT 125 Piping Technology
Mississauga, Ontario (July 10, 2017) — aquatechnik NA is pleased to introduce the new aquatechnik Fusion-Tech UV Black PP-RCT 125 and PP-R Super 80 pipe and fittings to the North American marketplace.
Fusion-Tech UV Black piping features a proprietary UV-resistant additive built into the resins for the outer layer of NSF-certified aquatechnik fusion pipe, as well as fittings. The piping meets the certification requirements of the NSF/ANSI 14 standards. It may be extruded in piping diameters from ½-inch through 16-inch.
Fusion-Tech UV piping excelled during independent testing, which involved an accelerated aging process that lasted 10,000 hours. Special Weatherometer instruments measured the effects of light, oxidation, and moisture on the pipes. With an overall UV radiation nearing 800 KLy, the test did not show any significant change in physical or chemical characteristics of the material.
Importantly, the aquatechnik UV solution clearly avoids issues faced by other manufacturers who use paint or jacketing of their pipe. The Fusion-Tech UV Black pipe and fittings solution is a significant innovation within the plastic piping category, according to aquatechnik NA..
“Our UV Black piping and other enhancements of the North American line is a testimony to the manufacturer’s commitment to continuous improvement,” says Steven Thomas, president of aquatechnik NA. “Our UV Black Pipe sets a higher standard for this category, together with other aquatechnik innovations like our best-in-class PP-RCT 125 pipe, large-diameter extrusion machinery (up to 24”), and patented Safety-Pol fittings and PEX-AL-PEX advancements.”
