Construction Structural MaterialsPipe
It is known as UPVC pipe containing nanoadditive. It is compatible with ISIRI 9119-1 and adding nano particles result in properties improvement in standard drop weight impact test. Nanoparticles as nanofillers significantly increase the strength, module and the toughness of the polymer matrix.
Polymeric pipe is a tubular section, or hollow cylinder, made of plastic. It is usually, but not necessarily, of circular cross-section, used mainly to convey substances which can flow—liquids and gases (fluids), slurries, powders and masses of small solids. PVC is used for the majority of plastic pipes in the world, as it is incredibly resistant to chemical erosion and has smoother inner walls that help to encourage water flow. It also functions well in a wide range of temperature and operating pressures. Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is the third-most widely produced synthetic plastic polymer, after polyethylene and polypropylene. Regular PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is a common, strong but lightweight plastic used in construction. It is made softer and more flexible by the addition of plasticizers. If no plasticizers are added, it is known as UPVC (unplasticized polyvinyl chloride). UPVC has high chemical resistance across its operating temperature range, with a broad band of operating pressures. Due to its long-term strength characteristics, high stiffness and cost effectiveness, UPVC systems account for a large proportion of plastic piping installations. It has been found that the addition of nanomaterials significantly improves both the toughness and stiffness of PVC.
