File Size: 6.64 Mb

The Plastic Pipe and Fittings Association (PPFA) is composed of more than seventy-five companies involved in the manufacturing of products for plastic piping systems. PPFA has been a major force in educating the North American market since 1978 in thermoplastic residential, commercial, and industrial piping products and installations. The Design Guide has been published by the PPFA with the express purpose of educating the engineering and construction community to the design benefits of Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) piping systems in commercial and industrial projects.

PVC or vinyl can be found in just about every home or business, in hundreds of applications. Because of the physical nature of this amazing plastic, it can be rigid, flexible, weather or heat resistant, impact resistant, thick or thin, and any color one can imagine. PVC’s major uses are in the following industries: medical, automotive, electronics, toys, packaging, and construction.
