PVC-U pressure fittings revised: optimised thickness, reduced emissions

FIP-Strategic-fittingsBoth in industrial and building application, FIP PVC-U pressure fittings represent a strategic portfolio for the Aliaxis Group. The revised structure allows a redistribution of the material with an innovatively variable and optimised thickness: thicker at high-stress points to be more resistant and common thickness at low-stress points to avoid material waste. The production process of the improved fittings reduces CO2 emission by 22% and water consumption by 21%.
