ISCO Industries Adds High-Performing Polystar™ PP-RCT to Product Line

Louisville, Ky. (October  10,  2013)  - ISCO Industries, a Louisville, Ky.‐based HDPE pipe supplier and custom manufacturer of plastic piping products, is adding Polystar™ PP-RCT polypropylene pipe and fittings to its diverse product line. Polystar is an excellent choice for building owners and engineers looking to replace CPVC, copper and other metals in HVAC and potable water applications with a leak-free and corrosion-free piping system.

"Polystar PP-RCT is a natural fit within ISCO's product line," said Vince Tyra, ISCO President. "PP-RCT is the most advanced polypropylene system available, and it is also the greenest piping system on the market. It's the pipe of the future."

ISCO has teamed with Orion, an industry leader in polypropylene pipe and fittings, as the exclusive National Industrial Stocking Distributor in North America. Made using the most commercially progressive resin on the market today, ISCO's PPR product line possesses the highest pressure and temperature ranges. The result is the best performing product available.

The advantages of Polystar™ PP-RCT:

• Completely hygienic
• Reduces thermal expansion by up to 70 percent, reducing the number of expansion loops, elbow offsets and expansion joints
• Lower installation cost compared to CPVC, copper and other metals
• All fittings are injection molded to complement the pipe, offering true system integrity and no need for de-rating
• Comprehensive selection of pipe welding equipment and options
• Backed by 50 years of plastic piping experience
• Ten-year product warranty

Polystar PP-RCT pipe and fittings are made using a unique random copolymer polypropylene high-crystalinnity resin. An encapsulated layer of fiberglass (Fibercore™) provides additional strength reducing thermal expansion by up to 70 percent. This proprietary mix of materials produces higher temperature and pressure ratings than the standard commercially available PP-RCT products. For more information, visit ISCO's PP-RCT product line.
