FITT’s Bluforce RJ: EPD® certified polymer alloy pipes for pressurised water distribution

Fitt_FITT_BluforceFITT Bluforce RJ is the first EPD® (Environmental Product Declaration)-certified PVC-A water supply system in Europe. FITT Bluforce is based on the PVC-A polymeric alloy, combining the strength of PVC-U and the ductility of polyethylene chloride (CPE), offering very high resistance to crack propagation, the main cause of breaks during the operation of pressurised networks. FITT Bluforce RJ’s special sealing system (tensile resistant joint) allows it to be installed using the HDD (Horizontal Directional Drilling) mode, avoid open-cut excavations and providing significant savings in installation costs vs normal trenching.
