Portrait of a Company

The World of
Plastic Piping
and their versatile

At Georg Fischer DEKA, people of different educational back-

grounds have been involved with plastic pipes for more than
fifty years.

Some 110 employees make sure that the once revolutionary

discovery of plastics remains a topic of conversation
because of the development of superlative plastic piping.

In this way the world of plastics for us plastic pipes has

become larger.

There is hardly an industrial sector which has not taken

advantage of plastic materials or components.

Nowadays, modern plastic piping systems can be found in

the chemical industry, in medical technology, air and
aeronautical engineering, the automotive industry,
clean-room environments, ventilation systems (for example
in hospitals) and in sanitary installations.

4 The World of Plastic Pipe Systems

Aside from standard pipe applications the small market of
industrial piping follows its own peculiarities, that have
to be considered when acting as a supplier:

Highly individual list of requirements

Central importance of the chemical resistance
Versatility of relevant polymers / products
and dimensional range
Strongly developed attitude of the end-
customer concerning aspects like quality,
safety issues, service and technical background
Highest quality demand along the entire
supply chain
Importance of continuous practical experience
and market-orientation of the processor
High potential for innovation

It is not worth mentioning that negative and somewhat

simple connotations of the word plastic are merely a
historical issue.

High-tech plastics like PPS, PEI, PSU (and many others) are
so versatile that they have become economically,
ecologically and technically irreplaceable.

Manufacturing standard parts of constant high quality is one
thing. Making the right decisions about the best applications
for specific new materials is another.

Scrutinizing of existing concepts and material-approaches

as well as their active improvement to shape the next
generation of products and innovative applications is the
key-mission of our development staff.

It is a major concern of ours to do this kind of work in steady

coordination with the respective lead-users and selected
suppliers. In the course of this we also rely on our
welldeveloped network to universities, institutes and the
strategic partnerships within the polymer-processing

Proceeding this way also ensures that Georg Fischer DEKA

is always involved in both solving actual market questions as
well as novel material trends in industrial piping.

Our activities to stepwise integrate the class of high-

temperature-resistant polymers (e.g. PPS, PAI, PEI; PSU) in
novel applications into our product portfolio is a well-suited
example for this kind of activity.

The range of suppliers for the genuine industrial market

for polymer piping systems is very restricted the responsi-
bility is high and the issues treated are quite complex.

For more than 50 years Georg Fischer DEKA has very

successfully faced that challenge. Based on our develop-
ment and production of high-quality piping products for
chemical industry and industrial engineering Georg Fischer
DEKA has done a lot of pioneer-work thereby gaining
influence over technical development in this segment
(e.g. the use of C-PVC or beta PPH).

The versatility of polymers processed at Georg Fischer

DEKA, the continuity of strategy and staff as well as the
steady development of technology applied accompanied by a
deep understanding of the relevant aspects along the supply
chain qualify Georg Fischer DEKA as a centre of competence
unique in the global market.

Further Processing /
Enhancement /
A section of the Georg Fischer DEKA company in which
piping systems and fittings can be further processed, i.e.
modified or upgraded, is of particular significance. With the
help of computer-controlled technology, the parts can be
changed in shape, bent, drilled, milled, welded etc. always
with their specific application in mind.

Parts with special dimensions, profiles, colour, length or

composition can also be made. In this way products can be
put to use faster. There is a cost saving in both time and
transport. Further processing of pipes to highly custom
specific systems, products or entire modules is a peculiarity
and core-competence of Georg Fischer DEKA.
