After having done some due diligence, I wish to expand and clarify to your readers my thoughts on biaxially oriented PVC pipe [Ipex investing $6.6 million in PVCO pipe, April 20, Page 1].
I think this new technology has great potential and is a very exciting new addition to our industry's product offerings.
I did not intend for my comments to be interpreted [to imply] that the biaxially oriented PVC pipe gasket is in any way substandard in comparison with those currently used in AWWA standard C-900 or C-905 pipe.
Ipex is on the cutting edge of our industry and shows great foresight in their investment.
It is my opinion that biaxially oriented PVC pipe will only continue to advance PVC pipe as the most used underground gasketed water and sewer conveyance product in North America.
