Founded in 1999, the Plastics Industry Pipe Association of Australia (PIPA) is the peak industry body representing manufacturers and suppliers of plastics pipe and fittings, plastics resin suppliers, plastic fabricators, pipeline installers, rubber seal ring manufacturers along with training and certification bodies.
We’re a non-profit association and our purpose is to promote the appropriate and contemporary use of plastic pipes and fittings throughout Australia.
Underpinning our approach is a commitment to future-focused leadership. Through research, education, technical expertise, and advocacy, we help advance the use of plastic pipes and fittings as a smart, efficient and sustainable solution.
By collaborating with our members, industry professionals and global counterparts, we can leverage the latest insights and technology. We use these to develop robust guidelines for best practice manufacture, installation, and use of plastic pipeline systems.
Australia’s vast landscapes require large-scale, special-purpose systems to move water, wastewater, gas and to protect underground networks of power and communication cables. We know the potential that plastic pipeline systems provide for long life, sustainable infrastructure that supports the circular economy.
By using resources responsibly through better design, we’re working smarter. We’re committed. And we’re working towards creating a healthier environment and sustainable future.
Plastic pipe systems are smart, efficient, and sustainable.
