Molecular Oriented PVC pipes (PVC-O) has been widely used in Malaysia since it has been produced locally around 4 years ago. Projects in Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah and Sarawak from urban to rural areas have begun using PVC-O pipes for water mains and water reticulation due to its many technical and commercial advantages, as recognized by the water authorities and SPAN. Government projects and private developments who seek the best price and performance would always put PVC-O on the top of their list. In this seminar, participating engineers will be shown technical details on specifying PVC-O pipes for projects and also solutions to different technical questions in the industry. Case studies will be presented to put forward different challenges and show how using PVC-O pipes could bring about the best solution from short to long term.
