The Novomoskovsk Polymeric Pipe Plant in the Tula Region launched the country's first production of a special reinforced profile made of unplasticized polyvinyl chloride (PVC), which is designed for pipeline rehabilitation.
Over 140 million roubles have been invested in the project.
The company launched the first line to produce profiled steel reinforced PVC strip.
Such products are used to create pipelines using the spiral and winding method. Before, they were not manufactured in Russia due to the high technological complexity of production organisation and therefore were imported from other countries.
It is planned to produce profiled strip in three sizes in order to form pipes in a wide range of sizes from 400 to 8000 millimetres.
It is worth noting that the design of the profiled PVC strip, which is reinforced with steel reinforcement, ensures high strength of the formed pipe, resistance to aggressive media, wear resistance and guarantees a service life of over 50 years.
