TP ABS Union with O-Ring
Tecno Plastic ABS
ABS is a homogenous material with high impact resistance and elasticity given by the butadiene component.
A major advantage of the material is the working temperature range -40 to +60°C at pressures up to 15bar. Pressure ratings for the thermoplastic pipe and fittings are always quoted for water at 20°C and it is a fundamental principle in thermoplastic pipework that if the temperature increases then the working pressure must be reduced. With high impact strength and good abrasive resistance.
ABS is generally resistant to most diluted inorganic acids, bases and salts and to most animal oils and fats. Chemical resistances are in compliance with ISO/TR 10358.
Rigid ABS fittings are suitable for connecting ABS pressure pipes in the following fields:
- Water distribution,
- Swimming pools,
- Food processing plants, etc.
TP's ABS fittings are produced with non toxic material and are suitable for conveying potable water and foodstuffs in accordance with the prescriptions of National Authorities in Italy (C.M.102.d.t.d.02.12.78) and in other countries.
ABS fittings are usually produced in accordance with BS 5391-2 dimensions. However, TP can also produce then in accordance with ISO 727 and BS EN ISO 15493 standards, only upon request and specific quantities.
