Vectus Industries Limited manufactures PE-AL-PE multi-layer Composite Piping Systems, which are composed of an aluminium core encased in an inner and outer layer of Polyethylene. All the layers in a composite pipe are permanently bonded together by intermediate adhesive layers. The level of thickness of the aluminium layer in Vectus Composite Pipes has been selected to meet compressive and flexural strength requirements. This helps to combine the advantages of metal and plastic pipes and eliminate the disadvantages of both materials at the same time. The aluminium core is absolutely diffusion tight and reliably prevents oxygen or gases from permeating into the pipe. It compensates and reduces snap-back forces and heat expansion with changes in temperature.
Vectus Black Composite Pipes are manufactured as per IS standard 15450:2004 while Yellow Composite Pipes as per ASTM F- 1282.
The available range of Composite Pipe & Fittings varies from 1014 to 4050. (These sizes are available in White/Orange/Blue colours also and will be manufactured as per the order)
The life span of these pipes is more than 50 years.
