The growing success of plastic pipes is linked to the human desire for a better life. It starts from the fundamental need for access to and availability of drinking water and sanitation. Today, new buildings combine optimal indoor climate with minimal energy consumption for heating and cooling. Latest plastic pipe systems were developed to make this happen.
Heating and cooling systems have a significant impact on the energy efficiency of the building envelope. Plastic pipes are an essential part of the heating and cooling systems in residential, commercial and industrial buildings.
Plastics have developed into a reliable pipe material for the distribution and supply of drinking water. Ease of installation combined with excellent lifetime – generally more than 100 years – make them into the material of choice for drinking water.
