PPFA is a voluntary, non-profit organization of North PPFA companies primarily engaged in the manufacture of plastic pipe and fittings for plumbing and piping applications typically installed on the building premises.
Starting in 2020, a team of experts from PPI member companies began a research project to investigate the potential effects of chlorine dioxide on pressure piping materials CPVC, PEX, PE-RT, PP-R, andPP-RCT.
The award was presented to PPI-member company Uponor. The Society Orlando is a two-tower, 1.5-million-square-foot, mixed-use, high-rise project in the downtown Orlando, Florida Central Business District.
Uponor PP-RCT is a polypropylene pipe that is a lightweight, durable product that resists corrosion, rust and scale buildup, making it ideal for mechanical HVAC piping applications, such as hydronic heating, hot water and chilled water, the company points out.
The facility currently operates as two separate plants – one specializing in automotive painted exterior components, the other in PEXa piping for plumbing and radiant heating systems and gaskets for household appliances.
