Often used in plumbing and other construction applications, PVC and plastic pipes must be easily identifiable whether ABS, Polyethylene, PVC, or another variation of pipe. The marking on plastic pipes has an important meaning to both consumers and contractors, ensuring the right size/material type is used in specific applications. At REA JET, we provide a variety of coding/marking solutions for the PVC and plastic pipe industry, including our large character ink jet printer, laser systems, and spray technology.
The pertinent information that must be included on PVC or plastic pipes typically includes material type, pressure rating, manufacturer’s name, pipe size, conforming standard, schedule number, and in some cases a laboratory mark or seal if the pipe is to be used for potable water. In some cases, maximum temperature tolerance is also included on the marking of plastic pipes.
Essentially builders, plumbers, and others who work in the construction/plumbing or electrical industries need to be able to distinguish the tolerances and properties of the PVC or plastic pipe used in specific applications. Regardless of whether consumers purchase plastic or PVC pipe to install on their own, or contractors use the pipe in developing a property, high quality, crisp marking is critical.
Our laser printing solutions make it possible for plastic/PVC pipe to be permanently etched with logos and other variable information, minimizing downtime for message changes and lowering costs in regards to inks/other consumables. In addition, our large and small character inkjet printers provide indelible printing on surfaces that are non-porous, making codes, size, material types, and other pertinent information permanent and easy to read so the product can be easily identified over its life cycle.
