Rollepaal was present at the PPXVIII conference


Again, Rollepaal was present during the 18th Plastic Pipes Conference in Berlin. 450 Participants from 43 countries made the conference a big success.
Many subjects were discussed, for instance the developments in different markets, novelties in applications and of course the subject of sustainability. The latter was reason for Rollepaal to support the Plastic Pipes Conference as main sponsor.

Rollepaal CEO Rob Spekreijse presented a paper on connections between PVC-O pipes and fittings. Additionally, mr. Spekreijse analyzed quality issues of PVC-O in an off-line production system and concluded that off-line PVC-O production lines need a separate socketing machine.

Besides that, the CEO discussed multilayer foam core pipe. This clarified many issues on multilayer technology. Different methods to save material were discussed and compared. The final conclusion: multiLayer foam core pipe can be easlily marketed without risk.

Rollepaal's Technical Manager Helmuth Reinhardt presented a paper on the quality of pipe and ways to reduce overweight and scrap in a simple and measurable way.

Once again we look back at a successful event and we would like to thank the organization for making the conference possible!
