Georg Fischer was established in 1802 in Switzerland with a focus on malleable iron fittings, with a more recent shift into plastic piping systems – GF has now over 60 years’ experience within pressure plastics and has application knowledge from around 100 countries. GF offer over 60,000 products to create complete modular systems, as well as custom parts and off-site fabrication.

Within the pressure plastics the three main varieties are Cemented Systems (PVC-U, PVC-C and ABS), Welded Systems (PE, PP, PVDF), and Double-Containment (such as COOL-FIT). Water, chemicals and mediums are conveyed through the systems in a safe and reliable manner. As GF’s offering is quite vast, we recommend particular materials for particular applications and mediums.

With a focus on our ABS cemented system, the specific properties of ABS allow application ranges of -50°C to +60 °C, and the exceptionally high notched impact strength even at low temperatures indicate the materials high robustness and tolerance to surface damage. GF’s ABS piping system is an energy-efficient solution for industrial applications, such as; refrigeration and cooling systems.

GF offers a modular system with pipes, fittings, valves and jointing technologies to provide all you need for you project.
