A-2000™ PVC Pipe
With a 100+ year service life, A-2000 withstands corrosive attack from both acidic and alkaline soils, is unaffected by chemicals found in normal sewage, and is a cost-effective alternative to other pipe products. Proven PVC Pipe for Sanitary and Storm Sewer Applications
A-2000 is a seamless profile wall PVC pipe extruded with a smooth interior and corrugated exterior. A-2000 provides excellent durability and resistance to abrasion and scour. It withstands corrosive attack from both acidic and alkaline soils and is unaffected by chemicals found in normal sewage. A-2000 has a proven track record in a variety of applications including sanitary sewers, storm sewers and subdrainage systems since 1984.
A-2000 is a cost-effective alternative to polypropylene, SDR35, ductile iron, RCP and glass fiber reinforced pipe products used in sanitary sewer applications. A-2000’s superior strength, joint tightness, and overall quality have made it a standard in the industry.
Engineered for gravity flow applications in depths exceeding 30 feet, A-2000 should be specified whenever you consider using PVC sewer pipe.
A-2000 far exceeds the durability and service life of HDPE drainage pipe and provides material stiffness up to six times greater than HDPE. And unlike HDPE plastic drainage pipe, A-2000 has a minimum of 46 pipe stiffness for all diameters.
A-2000 is also more hydraulically effective than HDPE or concrete pipe, meaning A-2000 can be designed as a smaller and less expensive pipe.
