PVC-O pipes are exclusively developed with Molecor innovative technology, which provides maximum molecular orientation. PVC-O offer tremendous benefits in terms of cost, jointing technology, high levels of durability and extremely long lifetime, backed by a 50-year guarantee. Molecor has created an exclusive system for the manufacture of highly efficient oriented PVC fittings.
Maged has signed an agreement with Corys Piping Systems to provide its PVC-O pipes for use in the Gulf region. The new technology offers significant advantages in terms of hydraulic efficiencies and long-term performance, as well as total installed cost savings thanks to its simple push, fit and finish installation technique and lightweight structure.
Molecular orientation, PVC-O pipes present several advantages both in terms of the quality of the product and its mechanical properties. The molecular orientation principle of the polymeric chains results in much improved impact resistance and reduced crack propagation while improving the pipe strength and fatigue resistance.
Molecor is the only company in the world that produces PVC-O pipes up to DN1200 with pressure classes ranging from 12.5 to 25 bar. It has proved a sustainable alternative to other potential material candidates due to its non-corrosive nature and high chemical resistance to commonly dosed chemical substances.
The company was established over 40 years ago under the name Hepworth and is one of the largest suppliers of pipe fittings and fittings to the oil and gas industry.
To improve urban resilience and healthy built environments, they manufacture drainage and wastewater systems, pressure systems for water and gas networks and distribution, cable protection solutions, and geosynthetics.
