Plastic Pipe Data Base Online
The Plastic Pipes Conference Association (PPCA) has a new website that will provide technical and commercial information for the plastic pipe industry worldwide. The association has published an online database that contains all of its papers since the first 1970 conference in Southampton, UK.
Over one thousand papers are included in what represents a major resource for the world of plastic pipe technology. This collection of presentations covers a wide spectrum of subject matter that ranges from highly technical aspects to valuable insights into the business forces that continue to drive the industry forward. It includes landmark reference projects, novel applications, installation methods and design, environmental issues, technical standards and testing, new systems and prototyping, raw materials and additives, scientific advances, no-dig solutions, manufacturing expertise as well as industry and trade aspects.
Chairman of the PPCA is Adolf Seidl, Managing Director of Solvay in Austria. “As an organization, our members are dedicated to providing reliable and relevant information on plastic pipe systems,“ explains Seidl. “For obvious reasons, most plastic pipe systems are buried underground or at least kept out of sight. But this does not mean they are without a voice on a world platform. This website will complement our conference activities by delivering the spoken and written word that reflects almost 45 years of expertise and experience.”
The first conference was organized by the Plastics and Rubber Institute. PPCA was specifically founded in 2002 to organize and run the series of conferences and exhibitions on behalf of the international plastic pipe industry. Its member associations comprise the Plastics Pipe Institute (PPI), PE100+ Association, PVC4Pipes Association and the European Plastic Pipes and Fittings Association (TEPPFA).
