Advocate

Plastic pipes and fittings have transformed the way we live, delivering essential services and utilities to our homes and communities.

Across a range of industries, from civil and domestic infrastructure to agriculture, mining and gas, plastic pipes and fittings play a critical role. They’re effective, efficient and safe. Robust and long-lasting, providing reliability now and into the future.

We work in partnership with Australia’s industry authorities and governments to advocate for the use of plastic pipes and fittings, sharing educational and technical insights, and where necessary to help change perceptions.

We know the opportunities created by plastic pipeline systems. 

We’re working to support our industry and Australia’s broader community of users that benefit from using plastic pipes and fittings.
