Designed and Sized Specifically for Sewer Applications
White Bionax® sewer pressure pipe is designed for sewer applications and sized to Cast Iron Outside Diameter (CIOD) Pipe.
White Bionax® sewer pressure pipe is the same Bionax® pipe used in water applications with a different colour and print line to easily differentiate between applications.
The pipe is made in 6.1m (20ft.) lay lengths and is intended for sewer force main applications or for when pressure-rated pipe and joints are required for sewer installation.
High Impact Strength and Performance
- IPEX PVCO sewer pressure pipe offers all the same performance benefits of Bionax® water pipe including corrosion resistance, fatigue strength and longevity
- The white colour and ‘Sewer Pressure/ Non-Potable’ print line help to easily distinguish White Bionax® from a water pipe
- White Bionax® offers higher impact strength, increase cyclic strength and lower surge pressure for the same flow conditions when compared to PVC pipe. It’s also lighter weight making it easier for handling
- White Bionax® is compatible with Blue Brute® PVC fittings, IPEX Fabricated PVC Fittings and ductile iron fittings
Certified to The Highest Standards
White Bionax® Sewer Pressure Pipe is designed for sewer applications and sized to Cast Iron Outside Diameter (CIOD) Pipe. Bionax® sewer pressure pipe is fully compatible with existing PVC pipe inventories and available in sizes 150mm through 450mm with a pressure rating of 235 psi for all sizes or 165 psi for sizes 400mm and 450mm only.
