Popular Pipes Group has the most modern equipment for quality testing of pipes in its own laboratory; working 24 hours a day to ensure quality. To maintain & assure the quality, popular Pipes has their own most modern, sophisticated & very well equipped Pipe Testing Laboratory. This latest laboratory is for quality testing and research & development purposes. Popular UPVC Pipes are inspected on line & tested in calibrated laboratory by its trained QC Engineers for conformance to the specifications of standards as well as for valued customers. The test are regularly conducted in quality control laboratory as per PS-3051/91 Equivalent to BS-3505.

Laboratory Tests

Impact Resistance Test

This test is conducted to check the impact strength of pipe.

Methylene Chloride Test

This test is conducted to test amount of chemical reactivity of pipe.

Opacity Test

This test is conducted to check the amount of light passing through pipe.

Specific Gravity Test

This test is conducted to check the proportion of PVC resin and formulation in the pipe.

Longitudinal Reversion Test

This test is conducted to check the amount of reversion under the heat exposure.

Hydro Static Pressure Test

This test is conducted to check the strength of pressure bearing capacity of pipe.

Resistance to De Lamination Test

This test is conducted to check the amount of de lamination on pipe under the heat exposure.
