Plumbing tubes close-up


The global population is rising significantly, especially in urban areas, creating a growing need for well-built buildings and infrastructure. The number of households and commercial buildings will increase rapidly in the coming decades, driving demand for building materials. In meeting this demand, the building and construction industry needs to balance a number of trends, including higher performance, increased durability, improved safety, better aesthetics, reduced maintenance, greater energy efficiency, reduced material use and waste, and lower costs.

To meet this challenge we developed thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPVs) for a range of demanding plumbing applications, including general seals and grommets, supply lines and riser tubes, deck plate seals, toilet flush valves and flapper valves, pullout sprayer hoses, diaphragms and plumbing parts for potable water.
