  • What is the MuPVC pipe used for?
    MuPVC pipe is commonly used for plumbing and drainage systems, as it is durable, lightweight, and resistant to corrosion and chemicals. It is also used for electrical conduit and cable protection.
  • When should I use a 50mm waste pipe?
    When you need to handle larger volumes of waste water, such as from a shower or bath, or when building regulations require it. A 50mm waste pipe is also commonly used for connecting multiple appliances to a soil stack or drain.
  • What is the fall for 50mm waste pipe?
    The fall for a 50mm waste pipe should be at least 1:40 or 1:60, which means a minimum slope of 1 inch per 40 or 60 inches of horizontal run. This ensures proper drainage and prevents blockages.
  • What is the difference between mPVC and uPVC pipes?
    mPVC stands for modified polyvinyl chloride, while UPVC stands for unplasticized polyvinyl chloride. The main difference between the two is that mPVC is more flexible and can withstand higher temperatures, while uPVC is more rigid and has better chemical resistance. Additionally, mPVC is typically used for hot water pipes, while uPVC is used for cold water pipes.
  • What is the difference between ABS, MuPVC, and uPVC pipes?
    ABS, MuPVC, and uPVC are all types of plastic materials used in construction and plumbing. ABS is a thermoplastic polymer that is known for its toughness and impact resistance. MuPVC (modified unplasticized polyvinyl chloride) is a type of PVC that has been modified to improve its properties, such as its resistance to heat and chemicals. uPVC (unplasticized polyvinyl chloride) is a rigid and strong material that is often used for window frames and pipes. The main differences between these materials are their properties, applications, and cost.
