Over the years, conventional metallic or plastic pipes are giving way to multilayer aluminum composite pipes. Making it a successful transition are the multitude of benefits such as high strength, long durability, lightweight, good corrosion resistance, and better thermal resistance properties. The increased growth in industries such as electrical and electronics, chemical and gas transportation, and construction are some of the factors fuelling this growth.
In fact, studies conducted by several analysts predict that the multilayer (aluminium-PE) composite pipes market is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 5.7 percent from 2019 to 2024. When approaching a pipe manufacturer, customers primarily demand leak-proof and robust pipes at a reasonable cost and delivered within the stipulated timeframe. After-sales customer service also plays a key role in the parameters to be checked off by the customers for a successful project. Moreover, apart from a pipe manufacturer, inexperienced installers pose a challenge when attempting to achieve project completion.
KiTEC Industries, a pioneer of multilayer pipes in India since 1996, is perfectly positioned in this market as a manufacturer of the revolutionary piping system known as "KiTEC Composite Pipe
System (KiTEC-CPS). The company offers a comprehensive suite of reliable products such as Multilayer (PE-AL-PE, PE-AL-PEX and PEX-ALPEX) composite pipes, PVC pressure pipe (up to 200 mm dia), PE pipes (up to 160 mm dia), Pre-insulated composite pipe with 6, 9 and 13 mm insulation thickness, PVC silent pipes for drainage application and specially designed multi-floor traps. “Composite pipes have various applications, the pipe is manufactured to suit the application and as per national and international specifications. Our USP is our quality. Our quality control lab is an accredited lab by IAPMO-India,” informs Avinash Laddha, MD, KiTEC Industries.
He goes on to explain how pipe manufacturing is not the only variable for performance and that an installer also plays a pivotal role. Keeping this in mind, the company offers onsite training to the installers and training on testing the installation so that the customer has a seamless experience.
