DWV PIPES ADVANTAGES
LIGHT WEIGHT & STRONG:
ASTRAL DWV Foamcore pipes are light in weight compared to solid wall pipes and give more strength compared to solid wall pipes due to their unique multilayer construction.
REDUCTION IN NOISE LEVEL :
Due to the middle layer of foamed PVC, ASTRAL DWV Foamcore pipes have very good insulating properties which act to reduce the noise generated by transportation of fluid inside the pipe. This will be very much beneficial in large buildings.
HIGH IMPACT STRENGTH :
Due to the middle layer of foamed PVC, ASTRAL DWV Foamcore pipes can take very high impact compared to solid wall pipes & can reduce the problems of cracking & breaking of pipes while transportation, handling & Installation.
HIGH TEMPERATURE RANGE:
ASTRAL DWV Foamcore pipes can be used for high temperatures compared to solid wall pipes as the foamed layer can withstand high temperatures.
SYSTEM ADVANTAGES HIGH FLOW RATES:
Extremely smooth bores, precision joints and lack of internal projections ensure unrivalled hydraulic capacity over the total life of the system. Flatter gradients can be possible using ASTRAL DWV uPVC drainage systems over conventional systems.
UPVC does not support combustion and is inherently difficult to ignite. It also stops burning once the source of heat is removed.
UPVC is a non-conductor of electricity, and is therefore not subject to galvanic or electrolytic action.
The inert nature of uPVC drainage system provides complete corrosion resistance and renders wrapping, coating and lining unnecessary. It also ensures that uPVC drain waste and vent pipes have long operational life compare to conventional asbestos or cast iron systems.
LONGER SERVICE LIFE:
ASTRAL DWV system comprises of Foamcore pipes & click ring type fittings. Both the products are weather resistant, corrosion resistant, and excellent in cushions. effect and ideally suited for sewer & drain applications. These benefits makes ASTRAL "DWV" system most favorable in term of service life.
COST SAVINGS :
ASTRAL DWV piping system can greatly speed up the installation work as they are light in weight, easy to handle and convenient in fixing. The spacing of manholes can be increased due to greatly reduced incidence of blockages and increased flow rates possible with ASTRAL DWV System. reduction in their number makes sound economic sense. All these benefits will lead to very high cost savings when compare to conventional piping system like asbestos or Cast Iron with respect to manpower, material and total time for completion of project work.
UV STABILIZED :
ASTRAL DWV system is UV stabilized which gives protection to the system while being operational in direct sun light.
ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT :
PVC has a lower feedstock energy especially compared to other polymers and common building materials. It is the least energy intensive of all thermoplastics. In life cycle analyses and independent studies, PVC's environmental impact has been found most favorable, so the more usage of PVC will greatly help to keep our global natural resources intake for longer period of time. It is not polluting air, water or land during manufacturing or service life and can be recycled after prolonged service life.
CHEMICAL RESISTANCE :
The excellent chemical resistance of uPVC pipes to acids, alkalis, oxidising and redcing agents makes it particularly suitable for a wide range of drain applications. uPVC pipes are resistance to all of the chemicals expected to be encountered in drain & waste application.
