Quality Control Department


Several tests are carried out in AL TAMAM laboratories to ensure the compliance of the products to quality standards :

  • Raw Material Test
    • Gelation Time
    • Bulk Density
    • Sieve analysis
    • Heat Stability
  • Final Product Test
    • Pressure test
    • Impact Test
    • Chemical Resistance Test(Sulphric Acid)
    • Heat revrersiontest(Shrikage)
    • Water Absorbtion Test
    • Resistance to environmental conditions
    • (Extrusion) Methylene chloride test
    • Tensile Strength test
    • Elongation at break test
    • HDT/VSP/ Vcat test
    • Opacity Test

A pressure test ids done to ensure pipes are manufactured according to Saudi standard (14/151996) (675/1997) Germen Standard 8061 and American Standard ASTM D1785 pressure varies depending on size and usage purpose.

Impact test is subjecting pipes to a strikers weight, which is increased proportionately to pipe diameter.

Pressure-Temperature Relationship

EXAMPLE ( for guidance only) Reference should be made to our technical Service Department for further details. Required Working pressure 7.0 bar with a liquid temperature of 40C therefore a 10 bar rated pipe is required.

uPVC Pressure Socket Fit Pipes


AL-TAMAM PVC pipes are multi purpose product with a wide range of applications in portable water Transportation Underground Pipelines for water supply lines, tube wells, also they are often applied as drain pipes in residential, cimmerical and industrial buildings.

uPVC Elastomeric (Ring Fit Pipes)

The Ring Fit Joining System

The following diagrams show the cross-section view of the Elastomeric pipe before   assembly. When the pipes are pushed together the rubber field is compressed. The composition gives rise to a sealing pressure that acts on the socket and sigpot as shown in the illustration below.
