Go Trenchless with PVC

IPEX Fusible BruteTM and Fusible Series PVC pipesTM combine the mechanical properties of PVC with a patented butt fusion process to deliver a piping system of unparalleled strength.

These fused joint PVC pipes also provide the only method of installing a continuous, monolithic, fully restrained PVC pipe system.

Suitable for a variety of trenchless or conventional direct bury applications, Fusible PVCTTM pipe systems have been installed at many sites throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico for both pressure and non-pressure installations in the water and sewer industries.

Consistent and Reliable Fusible Pipe

  • The proprietary PVC patented fusion process as well as our licensing and training program allow for the consistent, reliable fusion of Fusible Brute and Fusible Series pipes to create piping systems of unparalleled strength
  • The reduced wall thickness of our fused joint PVC pipe relative to HDPE yields more flow and requires less material for a given pressure class
  • The lighter weight and reduced OD dimensions of IPEX FusibleTM Fused Joint PVC Pipes help reduce overall installation costs
  • The abrasion and scratch-resistant properties of IPEX FusibleTM fused joint PVC pipes mean reduced maintenance is needed over the lifetime of the system
