Ultra X2Ultra X2® Dual Wall PVC Profile Pipe Dual Wall PVC Profile Pipe

A new dual wall PVC profile pipe that takes the benefits of PVC profile pipe up to 900mm.

  • Ease of installation
  • Joint tightness and infiltration
  • Resistance to corrosion / abrasion

 

IPEX's Ultra Rib has become the standard for storm water systems up to 600mm due to its ease of installation, reliable performance and resistance to corrosion and abrasion. Now IPEX is introducing Ultra-X2: a new dual wall PVC profile pipe that takes the benefits of PVC profile pipe up to 900mm.

Ultra-X2 has extremely tight joints. Even though it is designed as a non-pressure drainage pipe, its joints can withstand a hydrostatic pressure of 15 psi. This allows it to perform even in the toughest conditions – surcharged sewers or high groundwater conditions

Case Studies

A Wise Choice Made 30 Years Ago

In the early 1980s, decision makers in charge of the City of Vaudreuil-Dorion infrastructures had a sense of vision and made a responsible choice for the lasting benefit of the tax payers. A vision that would ensure durable infrastructures for over 30 years. The technical services, in cooperation with the public works department, decided a major shift for products to be used in potable water distribution applications. Since then PVC has become ``The Material of Choice`` made by the City to meet the overall needs, taking into account the existing soil conditions throughout the territory.
