The PPXIX Conference will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada USA, at the Red Rock Resort on September 24 – 26, 2018.

Plastic Pipes Shaken, But Not Stirred

A panel of engineers from the European Plastic Pipes and Fittings Association (TEPPFA) has reviewed and published the technical evidence that describes the behavior of plastic pipes in response to dynamic ground movements. Their findings are now contained in a detailed report that could prove invaluable for utility companies that deliver vital services such as water, gas, sewer and telecoms.

Discover plastics: international campaign unveiled

A major multinational awareness campaign, championing the suitability of plastic pipe systems for subterranean sewer applications, has been launched to inform and inspire the civil engineering and utilities sectors. Discover: Plastics celebrates the flexibility, longevity and strength of plastic pipes – as well as their ease and speed of installation – drawing on more than 20 years of independent research.
