UPP is the leading lightweight, flexible, non-metallic pipework system for above and below ground fuel lines. Environmentally safe, UPP pipe and fittings are the design standard for some of the world’s largest fuel retailers. The system’s electrofusion welding system creates a system that is very strong, flexible and easy to install.
UPP is constructed from PE100 high density polyethylene with an inner un-pigmented EVOH layer which is seamlessly and permanently bonded to the structural layer, with no permeability.
