If you are one of those people who frequently are in the need of UPVC Pipes for their regular purposes, you should have come across the terms schedule 40 and schedule 80 pipes. There are certain differences that should make the two stand apart from each other.
UPVC Pipes(SCH-40 & SCH-80)
The term schedule has nothing to imply anything related to time. In fact it is easily understood that a simple product like UPVC Pipes can be installed at any given point of time. However, the following differences are very important to note:
- The price rates of schedule 40 UPVC pipes are slightly less than that of the schedule 80 UPVC pipes
- Although apparently the outer diameters of both the schedule 40 as well as schedule 80 pipes are same, they have a difference in the thickness of their walls.
- The way of application and the manner that both of them are used is drastically different.
- The rating for water pressure is also important to be taken into consideration.
