The online Training Package for the actors across the whole PVC pipe supply chain had been refreshed, making it easier to educate sales forces and train employees.
The training package has been developed using the ‘most modern online tools’ to improve usability and extend its audience scope, with greater appeal to a younger audience and non-experts.
Available as an online training platform accessed via the PVC4Pipes website, the package has been revamped to reflect recent numerous developments and challenges impacting the PVC pipe industry, such as the EU Plastics Strategy, hydrogen transportation and issues surrounding microplastics.
About the PVC4Pipes Training package
The comprehensive package contains reliable, consistent and professional information about PVC materials and the sustainable solutions they deliver, both generally and for relevant application sectors, from drinking water to sewage, soil and waste.
Aimed at PVC pipes and fittings producers, the training package explains in depth the physical, chemical and mechanical properties of different PVC piping systems and provides technical answers on PVC performance in use, such as water and gas supply. It also covers the advantages of PVC piping systems, their environmental and sustainability credentials and offers guidance for their specification in various applications. Underground PVC-U and PVC-Hi pressure pipe systems, as well as those for PVC rainwater, hot and cold water and industrial applications are also covered.
