Plastic pipes, free-flowing

Canplast laid the first PVC pipes in 1965, PE-HD in 1980 and PP-HM in 2005.

We offer many solutions in order to provide you with advice, as well as with the various plastic pipes available on the market: pipes made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), of polypropylene (PP) and of polyethylene (PE).

The three types of pipes must comply with the European standards in application (EN1401 for compact PVC, EN 12666 for PE-HD, EN 1852 for PP-HM and EN 13476 for structured pipes).

  • Corrosion resistance
  • Watertightness of walls and joints
  • Abrasion resistance
  • Lightness
  • Easy installation
  • Low roughness
  • High modulus of elasticity
  • Great flexibility
  • Low prices
  • Recyclable material

Among the plastic pipes, PVC pipes have the longest and most extensive history of use for underground pipes. Today, with the expansion of its product range, Canplast offers even more opportunities to design offices while protecting the environment. Depending on-site conditions, the designer of the project will choose Canplast self-supporting pipes or concrete casing. In all cases, the designer will provide a watertight pipeline, resistant to wear and benefiting from the latest technological advances in the field of water management.

PE-HD pipes are mainly used for water evacuation inside buildings, pressured conditions (discharge) or in networks with a diameter greater than 1'200 mm. HD-PE pipes can be either M/F fitted (flow) or welded (end-to-end or with electrofusion joining sleeves) in order to ensure complete watertightness. Due to its physical and mechanical properties, special attention should be paid to thermal expansion. Thanks to its modulus of elasticity, HD-PE is the most "flexible" plastic material in pipes.

PP pipes are mainly used in industries where transiting liquids have higher temperatures than domestic runoff from wastewater and clean water. It is also used in civil engineering.
