    What is the meaning of UPVC pipes?

    UPVC (Unplasticised Polyvinyl Chloride) stands out as a variant of PVC characterised by its rigidity and contains no plasticisers. This composition gives UPVC pipes and profiles exceptional strength, durability, and longevity, making them the preferred material across various applications. UPVC pipes are commonly used in plumbing and drainage systems, capitalising on their corrosion resistance and robustness against high-pressure conditions. On the other hand, UPVC profiles play a role in the construction sector, being used in window and door frames, as well as contributing to the furniture manufacturing industry.

    What is the size of the UPVC pipe?

    We manufacture a huge range of UPVC pipes from 8mm outside diameter to 125mm in wall thickness from 0.5mm to 4mm. UPVC piping is made to order only.

    What is the difference between PVC and UPVC pipes?

    The main difference between PVC and UPVC pipes is their composition. PVC pipes, which stands for Polyvinyl Chloride, contain a plasticiser that makes them flexible. In contrast, UPVC pipes, or Unplasticised Polyvinyl Chloride pipes, do not contain plasticisers, making them less flexible. This rigidity gives UPVC pipes superior strength and durability compared to other types of plastic pipes. UPVC pipes have a higher tolerance for pressure and are resistant to corrosion, making them the preferred choice for demanding applications like plumbing and drainage systems, especially in situations with high-pressure requirements.

    Do you stock rigid PVC profiles?

    Yes, we stock rigid PVC profiles too. Transam Extrusions offers a wide range of versatile rigid PVC profiles designed to meet all industry requirements. Our range includes corner profiles, edge protection profiles, and even decorative trim strips.

    What is your manufacturing method?

    We employ the extrusion process to manufacture UPVC profiles and pipes. This involves heating plastic pellets or granules until they become molten, they are then passed through a die to create the desired shape. The hot profile is then cooled by air or water and cut into the desired size. This method allows us to produce UPVC profiles with high repeatability and consistent quality.
