Header of the document:
Plastics piping systems made from glass fibre reinforced polyethylene (PE-GF) for water supply and for drainage and sewerage under pressure
Basis for this document was the international Standard ISO/CD 29561. Krah AG values this as an additional and very important step on the way of implementation of KPPS pipes to the international pipe market.
* The general safety design coefficient C is 1.6, but also other values can be used when there is an agreement between manufacturer and end-user. The minimum value for C is 1.25
* Diameter of Pipes from DN/ID 300 up to DN/ID 4000 mm are included
* Attachment regarding the perfect ringstiffness and modulus of elasticity, for using KPPS even as drainage / sewer pipe
How can we manage the International Standard of PE-GF pipes?
Our strategy is that our customers / partners established similar national standards and specifications in their own countries. The more national standards we have implemented in the world, the more influence we will have also on international level.
