This EPD covers PVC pressure pipes ranging from 15-300mm nominal diameter for a range of pressure applications, including water reticulation and supply, irrigation, and pumped sewerage. The EPD includes separate results for three separate unplasticised PVC materials: standard unplasticised PVC (PVC-U), bi-axially oriented PVC (PVC-O), and modified PVC (PVC-M).

Iplex PVC-U pressure pipes are manufactured in accordance with the Australian Standards for PVC pressure pipe (AS/NZS 1477, AS/NZS 4765 and AS/NZS 4441), which have adapted the Best Environmental Practice PVC requirements developed with industry and the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA). Iplex PVC-U pressure pipe contains no phthalates, dioxins or heavy metal additives (e.g. lead and cadmium).

The EPD conforms with EN 15804 and PCR 2012:01 Construction Products and Construction Services v2.0, the EPD follows a "cradle-to-gate with options" scope including all modules up to installation at site (A1-A5). The EPD was based on a cradle to grave life cycle assessment study and other modules were deemed not relevant. The declared unit is one kilogram (1kg) of average installed PVC-U, PVC-O, and PVC-M pressure pipe manufactured in Australia from sites in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth.

This EPD complies with the requirements for a ‘product-specific EPD' and can be used to obtain Product Sustainability credits under the GBCA Green Star rating tools.
