Piping Systems is one of the key elements of a country’s infrastructure – arguably the most important one (imagine life without reliable water supply and waste disposal). The design life of pipelines is at least fifty years while the cost of failure in terms of disruption and repairs is prohibitive. It is therefore a serious responsibility of the plastics piping Industry to provide the correct products to the community. Experience has taught that without continuous intervention, product quality and standards will inevitably deteriorate.
