INTRODUCTION

UPVC (Unplasticized Polyvinyl Chloride) pipes for water supply systems are known for their durability and smooth interior surface. UPVC is a recyclable material that provides resistance to rust, corrosion, and chemical deterioration. Their suitability depends on the specific requirements of the water supply application, including temperature, pressure, and environmental conditions.

To ensure the product quality of pipes for water supplies, the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) has made it mandatory for manufacturers to undergo BIS registration and obtain the BIS ISI mark before selling it in the market. Manufacturers can use the ISI Mark on their products only after obtaining a license from BIS that is granted after BIS registration. The presence of the ISI mark on a product indicates that it complies with BIS's stringent quality standards.
