The Kitemark is synonymous with polymeric plastics pipes and fittings within the global construction industry and BSI exclusively offer these schemes to industry. Our UKAS accredited testing facilities and on site certification expertise ensure BSI are the natural choice for your compliance needs. The laboratory offers compliance and independent verification testing for R&D projects.

BSI is a Notified Body for many directives including the Construction Products Directive (CPD) for CE marking. CPD will begin to fully impact on polymeric plastics pipes and fitting products.

Polymeric plastics pipes and fittings are used for a vast array of industrial applications such as: 

  • Soil and waste
  • Sewers
  • Subsoil field drains
  • Cold and hot potable water
  • Gas uses manufactured in materials such as ABS, PVC, PE, PE-X, PB and PP

Typical performance tests conducted at the specialist BSI polymeric laboratory include:

  • Dimensional
  • Impact
  • Tensile strength
  • High temperature performance
  • Hydrostatic pressure
  • Thermal stability
  • Weathering

Product type testing through BSI can be included as part of product compliance for Kitemark and CE marking.  BSI thermal cycling and hydrostatic testing rigs for plastic pipes, support not only Kitemark applications but offer invaluable research and development of new piping systems.
