FIIT has installed the first EPD®-certified PVC-A water supply system in Europe, named FITT Bluforce.
“The technology used to make FITT Bluforce is based on the PVC-A polymer alloy (A for “alloy”), consisting of two main compounds: conventional PVC-U and polyethylene chloride (PEC). PVC-A offers both the inherent strength of PVC-U and the ductility of polyethylene, resulting in a product that can guarantee extreme resistance to the propagation of cracks, the main cause of rupture in pressure networks in service. “
The first ever Directional Drilling installation of a FITT Bluforce pipe in France took place in Bayeux on November 17th.
