ABS pipe and fittings are made from a thermoplastic resin called Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene (ABS for short).
ABS PIPING SYSTEMS:
- Are easier and less expensive to install than metal piping; Feature superior flow due to smooth interior finish; Do not rot, rust, corrode or collect waste; Withstand earth loads and shipping (with proper handling); Resist mechanical damage, even at low temperatures; Perform at an operational temperature range of -40°F to 180°F; Are lightweight (one person can load and unload); Take less time to rough in than metal DWV materials.
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, a prominent Arizona builder, used ABS pipe in an experimental residence. Twenty-five years later, an independent research firm dug up and analyzed a section of the drain pipe. The result: no evidence of rot, rust or corrosion.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
ABS pipe and fittings have become a leading material for DWV applications because it offers an outstanding combination of properties. Contractors have installed more than 10 billion feet of ABS pipe in residential and commercial construction.
ABS Pipe is sold in 10 foot and 20 foot lengths.
10 Foot Pipes may be Cut-in-Half for reduced shipping costs (upon your approval)
