In underground installations, thermoplastic piping may be snaked in trenches to minimize the effects of expansion and contraction.


Solvent cementing and socket fusion installations are much easier than traditional welding, threading, or flanging.


A variety of joining techniques makes thermoplastic flow-control systems adaptable to any field application.

Thermoplastic piping can be:

  • solvent-cemented
  • heat-fused
  • threaded
  • flanged

Tough Material

Thermoplastic flow-control systems perform well in the harshest environments. Thermoplastic materials are resistant to:

  • abrasion
  • corrosion
  • chemical and biological attack
  • weather

Smooth Flow/Thermal Retention

Fluids flow easily, with minimal friction loss, and maintain relatively uniform temperatures.

Chemtrol thermoplastic valves, fittings, and pipe offer unique advantages over non-plastic materials. When you chose Chemtrol, you've got the right idea. Questions? Contact a sales representative for more information on products, services, and the NIBCO® Advantage:
