Applied Technical Services offers plastic pipe testing services to clients in a range of industries. Our ISO 9001 certified metallurgy and materials testing labs have numerous testing capabilities at their disposal to thoroughly test plastic piping. We conduct tests according to your individual needs as well as to applicable industry standards. ATS also performs pipe failure analysis.

Taking a Closer Look at Plastic Piping
With the increasingly widespread use of plastic piping systems in water, gas, sewage, and other applications, businesses often request pipe testing services from third-party labs such as ATS. Plastic pipes – whether they consist of polyethylene, polypropylene, PVC, or other types of polymer – have many advantages but are not completely resistant to failure. Costly piping failures can be prevented by conducting periodic tests to ensure safe and reliable operation.
Our knowledgeable team of experts can tailor ATS’ numerous testing capabilities to fit your pipe testing needs with tests such as melt flow rate, impact and burst pressure resistance, and chemical analysis, for instance. Additionally, we perform detailed tests in conformance with specialized procedures such as ASTM D2665, Standard Specification for PVC Drain, Waste, and Vent Pipe and Fittings. Whatever your plastic pipe testing needs are, we likely have a solution.
