- Public archive opens
- Based on biannual International Plastic Pipe Conferences
- Number of archived papers have created great industry media attention
PVC4Pipes has opened a public archive of more than 250 PVC papers that were delivered during successive International Plastic Pipe Conferences for the last 45 years to the present.
Fabio Bernardi, Executive Director of PVC4Pipes explains: “The PVC pipe industry has a record for trends and transparency. We designed this data resource to serve as reference material for a wide spectrum of stakeholders that range from academia, environmental groups and government to raw material suppliers, plastic pipe makers and most importantly our customers and end-users.”
Archive based on biannual International Plastic Pipe Conferences conference
First organised in the UK city of Southampton, these biannual conferences and exhibitions have become truly global events. Typically over 500 participants and speakers from more than 40 countries attend to share the latest business and technical news in the world of plastic pipe technology. PVC4Pipes will update their archive to include future conferences. The next event (Plastic Pipes XVIII) is currently being organised by the Plastic Pipes Conference Association and will take place in Berlin at the Hotel InterContinental on 12 -14 September 2016.
Number of archived papers have created great industry media attention
A number of the archived papers have created industry media attention. Typical examples include:
– the long term behaviour of buried UPVC sewer pipe (Bath 1988)
– Molecularly Orientated PVC pressure pipes (Edinburgh 1995)
– Validation of the Long Life of PVC pipes (Chicago 2014).
