plastic pipe

Pipe formed from a material that contains one or more organic polymeric substances. Advantages may include: low initial cost, light weight, high flexibility, good corrosion resistance, and availability in long lengths. Disadvantages generally include: poor fire resistance, production of toxic gas upon combustion of some types of plastics, poor resistance to solvents, low pressure ratings at high temperatures, and (in some plastics) the susceptibility to change as a result of prolonged exposure to sunlight.
