Progressive Plastics Ltd has been a manufacturer of PVC pipe fittings to
major companies for many years. We are not a pipe supplier.
All our fittings are of high quality, and are made using methods developed by the company over four decades in the plastics industry.
All welded joints are bevelled to ensure that the weld penetration is maximised (wherever possible to the inside of the pipe wall). While the amount of weld applied will vary depending on the product, application, pipe type and specification, as a general guideline we use 1.5 times the pipe wall thickness for the weld depth and 2.5 times for the weld width. Gussets and fibreglassing may also be used where necessary.
Where possible our bends are blown or formed, ie made from a single length of pipe. This is stated in the catalogue where applicable.
In our view fittings for pressure pipe should generally be rated one level below the pipe from which they are fabricated eg fittings made from PN12 pipe will normally be rated PN9. This is our standard. We will always manufacture fittings to at least the rating specified on your order.
