oz pipe plastic conference

The Plastic Pipes Conference Association (PPCA) announces that papers delivered at Ozpipe XIX Conference in Australia will lead to a significant upswing in the region's plastic pipe industry. This spin-off event will be co-hosted by PPCA and The Plastics Industry Pipe Association of Australia (PIPA) on 7 and 8 November 2019 at Dockside on Cockle Bay in Sydney. Also announced by PPCA are the dates of the 6th China International Plastic Pipe Conference in Guangzhou, November 18-19, 2019.

Zoran Davidovski, Chair of the PPXX Organizing Committee, comments: “Ozpipe XIX will showcase recent technical findings particularly in the water and sewer/drainage sectors that will signpost a wider acceptance of plastics as the pipe material of choice.”

PVC highlights include a presentation by Jose A. Galera, who will inform delegates of the exciting research undertaken by PVC4Pipes' partner Molecor to develop oriented PVC fittings; an important step in eliminating ductile iron components to allow the construction of a totally corrosion-free PVC pipeline.
