From selection of the raw polypropylene granules until the finished pipe and fittings ship from the factory, Aquatherm is impeccable in its quality control.
A piping system is only as good as the raw materials it is made from, so Aquatherm tests every shipment of polypropylene it receives for purity and quality, accepting only shipments that are completely free of defect. Any shipments failing to meet Aquatherm's high standards are returned to the supplier.
Aquatherm then refines the raw polypropylene into the patented Fusionlen PP-R. By manufacturing it's own resin, Aquatherm can guarantee the exact chemical composition of its pipe and fittings, never using less than 97% pure polypropylene. This level of quality ensures that a piping system will not fail due to manufacturers defects and is only possible with an engineered thermoplastic, like polypropylene.
Once the Fusiolen PP-R is extruded into finished products, the pipe and fittings are thoroughly tested and examined for dimensional accuracy, appearance, melt flow, impact resistance, flexibility, homogeneity of the material, and internal pressure tolerances. These tests are verified by independent laboratories, ensuring that Aquatherm products always meet the high standards of NSF, CSA, ASTM, ICC, ISO, and DIN, among others.
Aquatherm backs its products with one of the most comprehensive warranties in the industry because of its rigorous testing and inspection procedures. Engineers trust Aquatherm because they know that, no matter what the job, they will receive a product they know they can rely on.
