Material safety data Abbreviations
Material Safety Data sheets are available on our website. The following list of abbreviations is used in this catalogue:
ABS – Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene
Jointing and installation ANSI – American National Standards Institute
Durapipe PVC-U solvent cement must be used exclusively for BS – British Standards
fabrication of the PVC-U system. Performance guarantees are null BSP – British Standard Pipe Thread
and void if other solvent cements are used. DIN – Deutsche Industrie Normen
(German Industrial Standards)
Storage and installation outdoors EPDM – Ethylene Propylene Rubber
Care should be taken to avoid exposure to sunlight. This will cause FPM – Fluorine Rubber (eg. Viton®)
discoloration and embrittlement of the PVC-U material. Whilst this ISO – International Standards Organisation
is a surface effect only, it is recommended that precautions be MEK – Methyl Ethyl Ketone
taken to prevent this happening (Other sources of UV light can PN – Nominal Pressure
have a similar effect). PTFE – Polytetrafloroethylene (eg. Teflon®)
PVC-U products should be stored indoors, under a shelter, or PVC-C – Corzan, Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride
covered with a tarpaulin. It is acceptable to install PVC-U outdoors. PVC-U – Unplasticised Polyvinyl Chloride
Painting of any un-insulated pipework installed in a sunny location
will be sufficient to protect the PVC-U material from the effects of
sunlight.

Filling and flushing


When purchasing chemicals for either flushing or long-term system
use, suppliers should be advised that this is for PVC-U material.
Guidance on the suitability of various system flushing or filling
fluids with PVC-U can be found in the Durapipe Chemical Data
catalogue.

Testing
It is suggested that the following test procedure be followed, after
joints have been allowed to dry for the appropriate minimum time
(at least 24 hours up to 8"/225mm, sizes 10"/250mm and
12"/315mm require a minimum of 48 hours at 20°C).
The system should be divided conveniently into test sections.
Fill section with cold water making sure that no air pockets remain.
Do not pressurise at this stage.
Check system for leaks. If none are apparent, check for and remove
any remaining air. Increase pressure up to 3bar. Do not pressurise
further at this stage.
Leave section pressurised for 10 minutes. If pressure decays,
inspect for leaks and rectify as necessary. If pressure remains
constant, slowly increase the hydrostatic pressure to 11/2 times
nominal operating pressure.
Leave section pressurised for a period not exceeding 1 hour. During
this time pressure should not change.

Caution
Personnel must stand well clear when pressure testing systems.
Similarly, under no circumstances should pressure tests be carried
out using pressurised gases. Such a test could be extremely
dangerous and serves no useful purpose.
Note: If extended times are required to achieve hydrostatic
pressure, either leakage has occurred or air remains in the line.
Inspect for leakage and if none is apparent, reduce pressure and
check for trapped air. This must be removed before further
pressurisation commences.

Non-toxic and Taint Free


The Durapipe PVC-U formulation does not contain lead and is free
from harmful metallic stabilizers. The Durapipe PVC-U system is
suitable and UK Water Regulations Advisory Scheme approved for
potable water distribution without the risk of taint or contamination
of the media by migration of undesirable additives.

Abrasion Resistance
Durapipe PVC-U offers good resistance to abrasion and erosion
from aggressive slurries which can rapidly damage steel or other
traditional pipe materials.

Smooth Bore
The exceptionally smooth bore results in low frictional head losses
and also inhibits the formation of scale, with consequent savings in
pump energy consumption, and reduced pressure drops.

Lightweight
At half the weight of equivalent copper pipe and one-sixth the
weight of steel systems, Durapipe PVC-U is much easier to handle,
especially during installation at site.

Easy to Joint
Solvent welding gives fast and trouble free installation and allows
simple modification of existing systems with minimum specialist
training.

Availability
An established network of stockholding distributors in the UK and
overseas ensures that Durapipe PVC-U systems are always
available near point of use.

Design of Supports

The calculation of pressure drop in fittings is more complex but The hanger type of support does not normally provide lateral

using the Formula E = F x D where: used they should be made as rigid as possible and must allow free
E = the equivalent pipe length (metres) axial pipe movement.
F = the fittings constant (see table below) All steel brackets in contact with the plastic system should be free
D = the fitting internal diameter in mm. of sharp edges to avoid damage to the pipe.
To calculate the total pressure drop in the system, the equivalent
straight pipe lengths for fittings is then added to the total straight Support Centres
pipe length to obtain the total drop. The recommended distance between supports for pipes filled with
water is given in the table below. Where the contents have a
Fittings Constant specific gravity greater than 1 the distance must be decreased by
Fitting dividing the recommended centre distance by the specific gravity.

Clips
Any pipe clips used in conjunction with Durapipe PVC-U must
allow free axial pipe movement and afford lateral restraint.
The Cobra pipe clips from Durapipe meet these requirements.
A suitable alternative would be fabricated mild steel saddle clips,
designed with a clearance between pipe and clip.

Pipe Routing
Systems installed above ground should be designed such that there
are sufficient changes in direction to accommodate expansion or
contraction. The support method described earlier will ensure that
the pipework can move axially, without snaking.
Utilize all available pipe flexibility. Do not place clips too close to
changes in direction.

T = temperature difference of the pipe accommodate expansion can be calculated from the graph opposite.

The coefficient of linear expansion for PVC-U = 7 x10-5/°C

What is the expansion/contraction of an insulated,
30m long, PVC-U Condenser water main, installed at 15°C,
operating at a maximum temperature of 35°C and a minimum
Pipe clip
temperature of 5°C?
Expansion:
L = 30,000 mm
 = 7 x 10-5
Fixed point (anchor point)
T = 35 - 15 = 20°C

Expansion = 30,000 x 7 x 10-5 x 20°C


= 42mm

Contraction:
L = 30,000 mm
 = 7 x 10-5
T = 15 - 5 = 10°C

Contraction = 30,000mm x 7 x 10-5 x 10°C Anchor Point


= 21mm

Hence the system must be designed, using expansion loops,


the natural flexibility of pipe, or expansion bellows, to cater for
a total differential movement of 63mm with an expansion of
42mm and a contraction of 21mm.

Example:
Calculate the size of expansion loop required for a 90mm diameter pipe expanding 42mm and
contracting 21mm:
Based on the worst case ie. 42mm expansion, L = 21mm
2

Draw a horizontal line from the vertical section to meet the 90mm pipe gradient line.
Drop a perpendicular from the intersection point to the horizontal scale. The figure obtained is
the free leg length of the loop required.
Hence, in this instance a loop measuring 1200mm long x 600mm wide will cater for ±42mm
movement i.e. the loop will cater for both the expansion and contraction of the pipe.

Expansion Bellows
Axial expansion bellows may also be used in place of utilising the
natural flexibility of the PVC-U. These must be of a suitable design
to ensure correct operation with PVC-U pipework. Contact our

Alternatively gravel can be laid approximately 100mm deep on the
Construction of Typical Anchor Points floor of the trench. (Sand may be used but subterranean water is
liable to wash sand away and leave the pipe unsupported.)
If pipes are jointed above ground, they should remain undisturbed for
2 hours before being lowered into the trench.
After laying, pipes should be covered with gravel or similar material
to a depth of 100mm above the crown of the pipe. The gravel should
be extended sideways to both trench walls and compacted. This
should be done prior to testing, with joints left exposed.
Care should be taken to ensure that sharp objects, stones, etc, are
prevented from falling into the trench before covering the pipe.
After pressure testing, joints should be covered with gravel or similar
material, and back filling completed.
A section of pipe installed below ground to the above
recommendations is shown in the illustration.

Anchor Blocks
When rubber ring joints are used it is necessary to provide concrete
anchor blocks at all sudden changes in direction such as elbows,
bends, tees etc. This is necessary to withstand the forces generated
by system pressurisation.

for this purpose and may be used in place of flange backing rings. Thermoplastic pipework can be damaged by plasticisers used in
the outer coverings on some heating tapes. Tapes sheathed in
plasticised PVC must be avoided, unless specifically approved by
us. (This comment also applies to any tapes, adhesives, or other
substances used to secure the heating tape to the pipework.)
Recommended heating tapes - The selection of heating tapes
with silicone rubber, woven wire, or woven polyester outer
sheaths will eliminate the risk of plasticiser migration. These
tapes are therefore preferred for use on thermoplastic systems.

• Intumescent Mastic and Mastic Sealants


Certain mastic sealants are formulated with phthalates.
Phthalates are known to be extremely aggressive toward PVC-U
materials, and therefore confirmation of the suitability of any
mastic sealant should be determined before being used in
conjunction with PVC-U pipework.

gap filling properties no attempt should be made to increase the
clearance between pipes and fittings by excessive abrading.
Solvent cement welding offers a simple and quick means of
constructing high integrity leak-free joints. Correctly made joints are
stronger than either pipe or fitting.
The solvent cement operates by chemically softening the outside of
the pipe and the inside of the fitting. Joint integrity is greatly
reduced if these surfaces are not absolutely clean and properly
prepared.
Durapipe PVC-U solvent cement must be used.
The procedure detailed below must be followed.
Procedure
1. The pipe must be cut clean and square. A suitable wheel cutter
will eliminate swarf. Alternatively a carpenters saw
may be used, however this does create dust which may 4. Thoroughly abrade the end of the pipe over a length equal to

using longitudinal strokes. The abraded areas should be
completely covered with cement. The amount required will vary
with pipe diameter and fit between pipe and fitting but should
be such in all cases that the cement is still liquid
(to allow surfaces to slide) when pipe and fitting are assembled.
It is important to apply cement quickly, to enable assembly
without excessive force being required.

11. Replace lids on tins.


12. Clean brush in MEK cleaner.

Note:
1. The integrity of Durapipe PVC-U systems may be affected
if Durapipe PVC-U solvent cement is not used.
Durapipe UK disclaims responsibility for any Durapipe PVC-U
system constructed with any other cements or not fabricated in
accordance with the instructions contained herein.
2. On sizes 6" or 160mm and above use 3" wide brushes and
1 litre tins of cement.
3. To achieve the correct speed of application on sizes 4" or
125mm and above, cement should be applied simultaneously
to pipe and fitting, by two people.

9. Immediately after application of cement, push pipe fully home


into the fitting. Do not twist. Hold the pipe and the fitting for
times varying from a few seconds on sizes 3⁄8" or 16mm to
1 minute on sizes 8" or 225mm and above. The slight taper
moulded into the fitting may otherwise cause it to slide off the
pipe with consequent loss of joint strength.
Application of the correct amount of cement will result in a neat
bead of cement at the edge of the fitting and at the edge of the
pipe. Excessive deposits inside the fittings must be avoided as
these can weaken the wall, particularly on small sizes.
When working under cold conditions make sure the joints are
free from frost and moisture and allow extra curing time to
compensate for the lower temperature.

Drying Times
The drying times will vary with fit, amount of solvent cement
applied, ambient temperature and working pressure. It is
recommended that, wherever possible, joints of sizes up to
8"/225mm are allowed to dry for at least 24 hours. Sizes 10" and
12"/250mm and 315mm require a minimum of 48 hours. These
guidelines are based on an ambient temperature of between 10°C
to 40°C. Longer drying times will be required at lower ambient
temperatures.
It is recognised that there will be occasions when the system will
need to be put into service within a few hours of being made. A
rough but safe working guide where the ambient temperature is
between 10°C to 40°C and the contents temperature does not
exceed 20°C is as follows:

Size Range Drying time


Up to 4" / Up to 125mm 1.0 hour / bar
5" & 6" / 140mm & 160mm 1.5 hours / bar
8" / 200mm & 225mm 2.0 hours / bar
10 & 12" / 250mm & 315mm 30 hours minimum

composite unions are Class E.
Plastic threaded fittings and composite unions in the metric range
have a pressure rating of PN10.
Example in the use of reducing bushes
If it is required to cut a thread onto Durapipe PVC-U pipe use a
sharp die especially reserved for plastic pipes and cut full thread
depth without lubricant in one operation.
This should only be attempted on pipe sizes up to 2" n.b. Class 7
pipe must be used. Pipes from the Durapipe PVC-U millimetre
range are not suitable for threading.
Assembly should be carried out by hand with final tightening by a
strap wrench, if necessary.
Extra care must be taken not to over tighten or damage the thread.
Pipe wrenches must never be used.
Male threaded fittings in the metric system are parallel, and cannot
be connected to taper fittings in the imperial system.
PTFE tape should be wound onto male threads prior to jointing to
ensure a satisfactory seal.

The use of reducers


All fittings have female ends, dimensionally controlled for cold
fusion jointing. In addition the reducers are provided with an
additional controlled outside diameter at the large end. They can
therefore be used as male or female components as shown.

WARNING
Anaerobic adhesive thread sealants e.g. Loctite 542, 572 can
chemically attack PVC-U and must not be used. We recommend
the use of PTFE tape as shown.
