The European Committee for standardization (CEN) has published the first European Standard for PVC-O pipes and fittings: EN 17176 “Plastics piping systems for water supply and for buried and above ground drainage, sewerage and irrigation under pressure - Oriented unplasticized poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC-O)”.

TEPPFA, The European Plastic Pipes and Fittings Association, initiated the process and with Molecor participated in the development of this new regulation for PVC-O.

Molecor has the most complete range of this type of conductions under pressure with the TOM® pipes, available from DN90 mm to 800 mm in pressures of 12.5, 16, 20 and 25 bar and with the ecoFITTOM® PVC-O fittings, manufactured from DN110 mm to DN400 mm and in nominal pressure of 16 bar.
