MATERIAL & PRODUCT PROPERTIES

Making the right decision upon which material to use, is of utmost importance to the operator of the sewage system. Pipe systems made of vitrified clay meet the requirements in every respect. The outstanding constant chemical and physical properties of the material provide it with high strength, density and robustness along with high resistance against wear, tear and corrosion, which results in an extraordinarily long service lifetime.

  • Long service life
  • Low maintenance costs
  • Reasonable fees
  • 100% recyclable
