Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) Pipes are rigid plastic pipes with superior range of performance values used for drain, waste, and vent lines. ABS pipe and fittings were originally developed in the early 1950s for use in oil fields and the chemical industry. In 1959, John F. Long.
ABS pipes and fittings are highly lightweight, only half the weight of aluminum pipes and fittings and one-sixth the weight of steel pipes – reducing transportation, handling, and installation costs. ABS pipe and vent lines are extremly durable with high tensile and high impact strength.
With a large temperature range of -40°C to 70°C applications of ABS Pipe are diverse. ABS is particularly suited to chilled, boosted cold, portable, low temperature and de-mineralised water applications as well as airline systems.
