First purchase of Wavin Pilsa PP-RCT from the Philippines

Beginning of May, Wavin received its first Pilsa PP-RCT pipes order from its distributor in the Philippines; Unitec Pipe Manufacturing Corporation.

This is a historic moment because in the Philippines, PPR Type 3 is the product of choice and very common for hot and cold applications. The Philippine market will now be introduced with a Type 4 PPR, a new generation polypropylene (PP-RCT) with better flow rate and improved pressure resistance.

Mr. Greg Yap, President of Unitec: “I am very excited to spearhead the latest innovation in the hot and cold materials segment in the industry with Wavin Pilsa PP-RCT”. He intends to market the product primarily to specific projects with demanding needs, and secondarily to the trade, when demand has been created.
