What is PVC-U Pipe?

PVC-U stands for Polyvinyl Chloride Unplasticised, a type of plastic commonly used for piping. PVC-U pipes are rigid and durable, making them ideal for various applications, including water supply, drainage, and ventilation systems.

Benefits of PVC Culvert Pipes

Lightweight & Durable

PVC-U pipes are lightweight and easy to handle, transport, and install. However, PVC-U pipes remain strong, tough, and impact-resistant, making them highly durable. They resist impact, withstand tough conditions, and serve reliably for many years without succumbing to corrosion or deterioration.

Low Thermal Conductivity

PVC-U pipes have low thermal conductivity, so they do not easily transfer heat or cold, making them ideal for hot and cold water supply. The low thermal conductivity means these pipes can effectively maintain the temperature of the water supply, conserving energy and reducing the need for insulation in the pipes.
Easy to Join

PVC-U pipes are easy to join using various methods such as solvent welding, threading, or mechanical connections. The ease of joining the pipes
allows for greater flexibility in designing and installing a piping system, making it possible to adapt to specific project requirements.

Good Flow Characteristics

Thanks to their smooth internal surfaces, PVC-U pipes facilitate improved water flow. This smoothness reduces friction, boosts efficiency, and diminishes the likelihood of blockages, ensuring a reliable supply system.

Environmentally Friendly

In an era where environmental considerations are paramount, PVC-U pipes stand out as a sustainable option. PVC-U pipes are recyclable and have a
lower carbon footprint than other materials, making them a sustainable choice that contributes to reducing waste and preserving natural resources.

Versatile Application

PVC-U pipes are versatile and can be used in a broad range of applications due to their durability, chemical resistance, and ability to withstand various
environmental conditions.


Combining durability, low maintenance, and ease of installation, PVC-U pipes offer a cost-effective solution for various piping needs. Their long service
life and minimal need for repairs or replacements contribute to their cost-efficiency.
