Manarco lip seal fittings offer mechanical fixing joints which has substantial advantages. Moreover, the revolution by the polymer industry has played a vital role in the reduction of water and sewage network costs. These advantages could be summarized as follows:
MANARCO Fittings being a non-conductor and non-metallic. It resist all types of galvanic and electromechanical influences, all types of corrosion caused by water, industrial liquids and chemicals. Thus increasing the life time of installed uPVC piping system.
RESISTANCE TO BIOLOGICAL ATTACK AND GROWTH
MANARCO Fittings is resistant to any microscopic life that it might be exposed to. It does not offer a nourishing source to any bacterial life form and is completely guaranteed to withstand any such growth.
RESISTANCE TO ABRASION
MANARCO Fittings are highly resistant to abrasion due to stress to abrasion fluids of excessive pressure. Tests have shown that uPVC piping system are up to 2.5 times more resistant to abrasion when compared to steel.
REACTION WITH BUILDING MATERIALS
MANARCO Fittings does not react with any of the building materials like cements and paints. However information about chemical resistance of uPVC fittings to a wide range of chemicals can be found in the tables of chemical resistance list.
MANARCO Fittings is a self-extinguishing material as per BS 2782 and does not support fire and toxic fumes
EFFECT OF SUNLIGHT
Long exposure to direct sunlight causes the color of uPVC fittings to fade, in addition to the reduction of impact strength. The effect of sunlight does not seriously affect the performance of the system, however it is always advisable to protect the system from direct exposure to sun.
EFFECT OF FROST
uPVC fittings is not affected by frost, however sub-zero temperature reduce the impact strength of the uPVC system. Therefore, extra care is given while handling and installing uPVC during sub-zero temperatures.
