High Strength PVC Pipe for Tough North American Climates

CycleTough® PVC piping systems are specifically designed for irrigation systems and sewer force mains. The constant cyclic surging that is associated with these applications demands a tough pipe and a specially engineered fitting.

Unlike other fittings, CycleTough® fittings are made with a long-life compound that extends service by 25%. In addition, CycleTough® fittings have been engineered using the latest techniques in Finite Element Analysis (FEA), ensuring low-maintenance performance for the long haul.

Engineered for Versatility and Reliability

  • IPEX CycleTough® high-strength PVC pipe and fittings are made with the same high-impact, engineered compound as our Blue Brute® systems, and tested to maintain the same high standards
  • CycleTough® systems have a 2:1 safety factor for long-term pressures, and over 3.2:1 for temporary surges. Their unique design features extra material added for reinforcement to withstand the stresses imposed by tough irrigation and force main applications
  • CycleTough® systems are made with an IPSOD, which is the same outside diameter configuration as schedule piping and most steel process piping
  • IPEX’s patented gasket system not only withstands the rated system pressure, but also withstands full vacuum pressures. The removable gasket system allows special oil-resistant (nitrile) gaskets to be easily installed when working in contaminated soils
