Fusible PVC® Pipe

fusible pvc

Fusible PVC® pipe combines industry accepted PVC plastic with thermal butt-fusion joining technology to provide the water, wastewater, electrical, industrial and telecommunications industries with a fully restrained, monolithic pipe for use with traditional and trenchless installation methods. Well over 10 million feet of Fusible C-900®, Fusible C-905® and Fusible PVC® pipe have already been installed around the world.

PVC has a long and successful history as water and sewer pipe. It is:

  • Durable
  • Corrosion resistant
  • Resistant to chemicals
  • Strong
  • Inexpensive
  • Familiar

Underground Solutions' Fusible PVC® pipe has all of the same benefits of PVC along with the benefits that come with a fusion joining process for both trenchless and traditional open-cut project installation.


  • Fusible C-900®, Fusible C-905® and Fusible PVC® pipes from Underground Solutions are the only fusible polyvinyl chloride pressure pipes on the market, and they are the only PVC pipes that have a joint as strong as the pipe.
  • Fusible C-900®, Fusible C-905® and Fusible PVC® pipes are stronger, lighter, less costly and easier to work with than HDPE in trenchless applications.
  • PVC is currently the most widely utilized pipe material in the United States.
  • Fusible PVC® pipe provides a monolithic, fully restrained, gasket- and leak-free piping system.
  • PVC has a much higher stiffness (modulus) compared to other plastic pipe which limits long term deformation under soil load.
  • High tensile strength (ASTM D638) of the fused joint (up to 7000 psi) allows for higher safe pulling stresses and consequently longer installation pull-in lengths.
  • Low wall thickness for given pressure requirement translates into highest flow per outer diameter (OD) dimension.
  • Standard waterworks fittings are used to tap, connect and change direction on Fusible PVC® pipe systems–eliminating the use of expensive transition fittings or fused-on fittings.
  • PVC resists hydrocarbon permeation better than other thermoplastic pipe systems (AWWA Research Foundation).
  • PVC is more resistant to water disinfectant induced oxidation than other thermoplastic pipe systems.
  • PVC has been used for over 50 years–owner and contractor familiarity of the pipe is well established.
Fusible PVC® pipe is NSF 61 certified for potable water use. Fusible PVC® pipe and the fusion joint have been extensively tested by Underground Solutions and leading third-party independent laboratories with comprehensive experience in plastic pipe testing. Fusible PVC® pipe has successfully passed all relevant tests and exceeds industry requirements in most cases.
