Abstract

The physical ageing kinetics of uPVC pipes with different levels of gelation were investigated. No significant influence of the level of gelation on both the deformation kinetics and the physical ageing kinetics were observed. As a consequence, installed uPVC pipes as employed for gas, water and sewer purposes age in a way that is independent of the level of gelation
