The main benefits of pipes, they are flexible, durable, conservative & strong designs, convey martial one place to another easily and safely.

Following are the areas where iron, steel, and plastic pipes can be used.

Pipes for Home Plumbing

These are the three main areas for which pipes are used – water supply, drainage, and electricity. Galvanized steel or iron, copper, polybutylene, and plastic are used for water supply at home through taps.  Unplasticized polyvinylchloride (PVC), chlorinated polyvinylchloride (CPVC) and polyethylene (PE) pipes come in use for bathroom, kitchen, and roof water drainage system. Electrical PVC Pipe is used for electric setting and wire & cable protection.


Construction projects require high quality and industrial pipes for their high work. The main builders need pipes for materials conveying, commonly used to construct water pipes including cast iron, polyvinyl chloride (PVC), copper, steel, and in older systems concrete or fired clay.

Structural Pipes

Architectures are designing and building complex building structure through iron and steel pipes which is energy-efficiency, durability, time-saving, resistance to water, fire, and insect damage. Cast iron pipes, carbon steel, stainless steel, and galvanized steel pipes are the most common names for building a structure. These types of pipes are welding small diameter pipe and a seamless pipe.


The agriculture and irrigation sector require strong, durable, and restless pipes that can handle high pressure of water pumping and irrigation fountain. There are many types of piping available in the market but PVC, stainless steel, galvanized iron,  CPVC, and polyethylene is the best pipes.
