Product Announcement from SCHOTT North America, Inc. - Glass Tubing
KIMAX® Glass Pipe is corrosion resistant, it can handle future anticipated requirements. And glass pipe is not affected by external corrosion either. KIMAX® Glass Drainlines are unaffected by lime, moisture, and other materials in the soil. The smooth, non-porous surface of a KIMAX® Glass Drainline minimizes plugging and scale build-up – an important feature for buried pipe.
KIMAX® Glass Drainlines are also tough enough to withstand the rigors of underground installation methods. EPS*-covered KIMAX® Glass Drainlines meet or exceed ASTM requirements for buried heavy schedule cast iron pipe. EPS covered KIMAX® Glass Drainline passes the ASTM three-edge bearing test, the impact test, and the earth loading test.
* EPS is Expanded Polystyrene
(Testing report from Pittsburgh Testing Laboratory available uopn request.)
KIMAX® B/P Couplings not only resist internal and external corrosion, but their ability to deflect up to 4° without leaking allows buried KIMAX® Glass Drainlines to flex with shifting ground conditions. Joints are easy to make, rugged and reliable: Installing KIMAX Glass Drainlines is fast and inexpensive – even faster and less costly than less effective materials like polypropylene pipe.
