This research examined changes in polyethylene (PE) and PVC pipe technology to provide revised guidance on pipe manufacture, pipeline maintenance, water quality approvals etc.
Improvements in polyethylene jointing technology, increased knowledge on the performance of pipes and materials, and the maintenance of systems were all examined and reflected in the new manuals.
A Buyer's Guide is included with each of the manuals giving detail of products available in the market.
The research and manual revisions were undertaken jointly by WRc plc and the Pipe Group of the British Plastics Federation (BPF).
- The revised research and manuals will provide confidence in the use of PE and PVC pipe systems.
- Access to these documents is available free, online at www.wrcplc.co.uk/pvc and www.wrcplc.co.uk/pe
