Summer is here and the combined effect of ultraviolet rays plus temperatures may adversely affect your pipe. Hence, you may be curious about the protective measures you can take. The bulk of modern manufactured pipe utilizes material engineered for the elements and will withstand the effects of UV exposure. Instead, it is possible the pipe may experience some degree of deterioration.
A pipe that’s experienced long-term exposure to UV rays may see some discoloration while also hardening or even becoming brittle. As long as the handling and installation have been done professionally and up to current standards, there shouldn’t be an issue in regards to its ability to move loads.
You may want to consider Fusion-Tech UV Black Piping, the first fusible polypropylene pipe solution with UV protection, if you are particularly worried about what damaging effects UV rays may have on the pipes you’ve installed. It makes use of the highest polypropylene standard and is the only pipe of its type designed to offer impressive resistance electrochemical reactions as well as plaster and cement.
