What is the shelf life of Abs solvent cement?
ABS solvent cement is marked with a shelf-life of up to 12 months from the date of manufactured.
How to store ABS pipe?
You can store ABS pipe and fittings either inside or outside. Protect the material from direct sunlight as exposure to the sun can cause discoloration. Store ABS pipe on a level support to prevent sagging or bending. Do not stack more than 1 meter high and the lowest level consists of the thickest wall thickness pipes.
How can we accommodate the movement of pipe due to expansion or contraction?
It is usually possible to accommodate pipe movement utilizing the natural flexibility of the pipework at changes in direction. If there are insufficient changes in direction, other methods would include the inclusion of expansion loops or flexible rubber bellows to accommodate the movement. (Where the use of rubber bellows are proposed, the suitability should be checked with the manufacturer / supplier of flexible bellows)
What material can I insulate my ABS pipe work for chilled water pipe ?
Mineral wool types such as ‘Rockwool’ or PU foam is suitable, please ensure correct type of glue is used or consult with Azeeta Pipe System Sdn Bhd.
Can I join ABS to Upvc ?
This practice is not recommended. Use mechanical joints e.g. flange or threaded joints. Temporary joints can be made in non-critical situations, provided that both systems are suitable for the application, (e.g. on a cold water system). These temporary joints must be made strictly in accordance with recommendations. PVC-U solvent cement must be used.
Can ABS pipe be used for chilled water piping system ?
Yes. AZEETA® ABS piping remains ductile at temperatures as low as – 40°C and is ideally suited to chilled water or subzero applications.
What is the lowest and highest ambient temperature which I can make a good ABS joint ?
Temperature is not so critical provided that surfaces are kept dry and clean. However, for below zero temperatures, you should allow additional curing time, as the evaporation rate of the solvent will be slowed down. At above room temperature and strong wind environment, the evaporation rate of solvent cement increases significantly.
ABS pipe is made to which standard ?
AZEETA® ABS pipe and fitting is manufactured in accordance to MS1419:Part 1:2007. However, we can also manufacture the pipe and fitting to AS/NZ 3518 & BS 5391.
Is Azeeta ABS Piping System Suitable to Convery Potable Water?
Yes. Azeeta ABS piping system i.e., Pipes, fittings and solvent cement were tested to MS1583 and confirmed to be suitable for the conveyance of potable water.
ABS pipe needs to be painted when exposed to sunlight?
Yes. ABS piping shall not be exposed to direct sunlight unless the pipe is protected by water-based paints.
