The permanent search for perfection and a concern for quality mark out SAINT-GOBAIN PAM as the world leader. the NATURAL range offers several advantages: • it considerably extends the field of use of ductile iron pipeline systems. Since most water supply work is carried out in the diameters DN 60 to DN 600. • pipes can be installed without a systematic soil survey and without additional on site protection. from DN 60 to 300. • Standard Vi self-anchored joints extended to diameters 350 to 600. • quick and easy to install push fit joints. Whilst retaining the traditional advantages of ductile iron: • robustness and reliability of the pipeline systems. used in the first water systems. NATURAL pipes are now coated up to DN 600 in order to build even longer lasting homogeneous networks.2011 Edition . in over 95 % of the ground types encountered. with a patented anticorrosion external coating. SAINT-GOBAIN PAM is currently extending the NATURAL range with a series of major innovations: 2 • Extension to diameters 350 to 600. • NATURAL UNIVERSAL for the most demanding applications. the innovative multi-layer coating on NATURAL pipes represented a major technical revolution. a ductile iron pipeline system. the company has capitalised on the exceptional qualities of a material which has stood the test of time whilst continuously striving to improve and develop it. 3 Saint-Gobain PAM . cast iron is a historic reference material. SAINT-GOBAIN PAM launched the NATURAL range. • it significantly increases the lifetime of the pipeline. At the time. SAINT-GOBAIN PAM is itself a technical reference: for more than 150 years.Stick to your principles In 2000.NATURAL . In many countries.

Ductile iron Ductile iron is an iron/carbon/silicon alloy containing pure carbon in a spheroidal graphite form. The emphasis placed on research and development has enabled the company to combine traditional know-how and technical innovation to continuously offer its customers high quality. mostly derived from recycled ferrous materials. placing the pipeline in contact with rocks likely to pierce the pipe or cause breaks. by a mechanical shovel). more than 150 years of history and know-how Founded in 1856. • Accidental excess pressures. 1 4 1 2 3 4 1-2. • Migration of the trench bottom. 3-4. The mechanical properties of ductile iron are stable over time and remain constant throughout the life of the network. It can be completely recycled with no loss of properties and for the same application. as well as the site contingencies which may occur despite the precautions taken. ductile iron systems form adaptable and flexible systems which can withstand external loads caused by the backfill. Recycled cast iron is used as a raw material in traditional steel and iron processes. It is ISO 14001 certified. Equipped with elastomeric joints.NATURAL . adopted by SAINT-GOBAIN PAM. • Ground movement. 2 3 5 1. reliable and ergonomic products. simplified by the use of modular and fully compatible components. even under the most difficult laying conditions.NATURAL . damaging the pipeline (for example.In "ductile" iron. in non restricting and non hazardous industrial processes. ductile iron is a "noble material" that can be 100 % reused. The material is no longer "fragile". The installed network must therefore be durable. Installation of PAM ductile iron networks. Thanks to the qualities of ductile iron. • Future work.Easy. It is "ductile" and strong.Ductile iron can cope with major deformations: torsion of a bar.

Pipelines must adapt to the ground movements and be able to withstand the mechanical stresses applied during these movements. This process results in the following properties: > l ow porosity of the mortar. subsidence caused by pumping ground water. Considerable forces are involved and there is an interaction between pipe and soil. In practice however.1 when designing networks. 12 Unstable ground 13 Special cases The PUR lining is available in the NATURAL range European directive 98/83/CEE concerning water intended for human consumption sets water quality criteria. but protects the ductile iron by a passivation mechanism: after being put into service. so the work involved in laying is safer and cheaper.

The centrifugal process offers the advantage of producing a compact mortar and a smooth internal surface.

in order to reach unequalled performance levels. It can be used from DN 60 to 600 for pipes and fittings. Watertightness is produced by compression of the elastomeric gasket during assembly by insertion of the spigot in the socket. The STANDARD and EXPRESS joints can tolerate a high degree of angular deflection. The STANDARD Vi gasket. has metal inserts which bite onto the spigot of the inserted pipe after assembly and pressurisation. The advantage of STANDARD Vi and EXPRESS Vi joints is that they can be fitted on any pipe or any fitting in the NATURAL range.
