IPA, the 1st multilayer pipe producer in the Arab-African area since 2001 with his very well-known IPALPEX trade mark certified CSTBat and its 20 million meters capacity by year has decided to develop now its own PPR/GLASS FIBER PIPES.

IPA who always looks for the excellence and who loves the ways where difficulties are its best challenge, has just bought a new German Battenfeld PPR/FIBER production line that is able to reach diameter 250 mm and has an annual capacity of 2500 tons. It is a very interesting product as it allow pipe to keep, more or less, its nominal length even with a very high water temperature inside thanks to glass fiber stabilization. It is, again, the first time where such dimensions are reached in Africa. And as usual, IPA will count on a very high quality level by buying its raw material from the world leaders, for both PPR and Glass Fiber and by dedicating a very special training to its technicians.

With this new investment, IPA reinforces again its leading position in sanitary and heating industry in Africa.

For reminder, IPA belongs to the SCIPP group, which is the Tunisian leader in PVC with its 800 mm pipe diameter and 10 000 annual tons material transformed and HDPE pipes where SCIPP can reach 2000 mm diameter. To complete the range, SCIPP group has a company, S2E, which is specialized in producing circular and flat irrigation pipe with a very high level of quality and with a total capacity of 100 million meters by year.
