ABS Pipes, Valves and Fittings (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) is a homogenous material with good chemical resistance and high impact strength. Other advantageous features are its suitability for use at low temperatures (-40⁰C) and its ease of jointing. Plimat ABS Plastic Pipe Products are manufactured in mid grey colour.
Individual Products are in accordance with the appropriate British Standards.
