Unlike many competing fittings, CycleTough fittings are made with a longlife compound that extends service by 25%. In addition, CycleTough fittings have been engineered using the latest techniques in Finite Element Analysis (FEA), ensuring problem-free performance for the long haul.
IPEX CycleTough systems are made with the same high-impact, engineered compound as our Blue BruteTM systems, and are tested to maintain the same high standards. Proven in tough North American climates for over 50 years, IPEX PVC pipe systems have an established track record of performance.
High Impact Strength
CycleTough systems have a 2:1 safety factor for long-term pressures, and over 3.2:1 for temporary surges. CycleTough systems easily withstand surges over 600 psi.
CycleTough fittings are engineered for versatility and reliability. Their unique design features extra material added for reinforcement to withstand the stresses imposed by tough irrigation and forcemain applications.
Iron Pipe Size Outside Diameter (IPSOD)
CycleTough systems are made with an IPSOD, which is the same outside diameter configuration as schedule piping and most steel process piping.
Bottle-tight Joints, Removable Gaskets
IPEX’s patented gasket system not only withstands many times the rated system pressure, but also withstands full vacuum pressures. The unique removable gasket system allows special oil-resistant (nitrile) gaskets to be easily installed when working in contaminated soils.
All CycleTough systems are certified to CSA B137.3. Third-party certification verifies a system will perform as expected, meeting all applicable standards
