ABS Pipework Accessories

Thermoplastics have become a low cost but high quality alternative for pipes, fittings and valves in many industries. They are the preferable choice when it comes to food and beverage, waste, water, sewerage and drain pipe systems. The durability, flexibility of use and resistance to chemical corrosion has made ABS in particular very popular as a piping material in a wide range of applications .
