December 14, 2018

Stiffness is the property of the pipe, which defines their resistance to deformation under external loads, mainly vertical loads associated with buried pipe conditions. In non-stress applications, this is a basic property to ensure the correct performance of the installation. The allowable depth of burial is calculated according to the research test. PVC products have been successfully installed at depths of 50 feet or more.
