Underground Solutions is an infrastructure technology and pipeline rehabilitation company. UGSI has developed and continues to develop unique and proprietary technologies focused on the underground infrastructure industry. UGSI's Fusible C-900®, Fusible C-905® and FPVC® products contain a proprietary PVC formulation that, when combined with UGSI's patented fusion process, results in a monolithic, fully restrained, gasket-free, leak-free piping system. Fusible C-900®, Fusible C-905® and FPVC® are NSF-61 certified, comply with AWWA C900 and C905 standards and cover a full range of piping diameters from 4 inch to 36 inch (with larger sizes in development) and provide the only available method of installing a continuous, monolithic, gasket-free PVC pipe or conduit capable of being used in numerous trenchless or conventional "open-cut" applications including:
Applications for this technology cover every aspect of piping installations including both pressure and non-pressure situations in the water, sewer, electrical, industrial and telecommunications industries. Fusible C-900®, Fusible C-905® and FPVC® pipe have been installed at over 2000 sites throughout the US, Canada, New Zealand and Mexico.
The Underground Solutions Fusion Process: Fusible C-900®, Fusible C-905® and FPVC® have distinctive properties allowing full strength butt fusion joints. While other thermoplastic materials have been fused routinely, the Underground Solutions PVC field fusion process incorporates a patented combination of heat, pressure and time while using industry standard fusion machines to create the unique high strength joint.
