INCOLA Soundproof – Questions
What does ‘Soundproof Pipe or Acoustic Pipe’ mean?
Various efforts have been made to reduce sound absorption in wastewater/drainage pipes. Often, insulated pipes or insulation walls are used; however, this translates into extra material costs for manufacturers in addition to extra labor costs.
Traditionally, based on simple and traditional measurement criteria, the thicker and heavier the pipe, the more difficult it is to vibrate and as a result, the less noise it may generate. Today, VESBO has made it possible to reduce vibrations and consequently physical noises in buildings to minimal levels with the introduction of three-layered pipes with special additives. Incolene, a mineral reinforced raw material, minimizes noise generation with its significantly high density and wall thickness.
VESBO INCOLA Pipes complies with the performance tests of EN 1451-1 (Plastic Piping Systems for soil and waste discharge low and high temperature, within the building structure – Polypropylene (PP) – Part 1: Specifications for pipes, fittings and the system) with SN4, SN8 and SN12 load carrying capacity.
VESBO, a global brand name and innovator of smart piping solutions, presents INCOLA Soundproof (Silent) Piping Systems – a commercially and technically viable solution for home owners and installers.

How to reduce the disturbing noise in bathrooms?
In domestic and industrial wastewater drainage systems, noises are typically generated through air and physical media. Pipe vibrations are transmitted as air-borne noises and transferred to walls as structure-borne noises, through special fixed clamps. These may cause disturbances to the household.

Does sunlight adversely affect PPR Pipes?
VESBO products are produced with UV stabilizers. However, like all other Piping Systems including metal pipe works, VESBO products should not be exposed to direct sunlight without insulation or protection against sunlight or UV radiation. For applications where constant UV exposure is expected, VESBO UV pipes should be used. For prolonged lifespan, a protective paint in black or a jacket is recommended
What is the fire classification class of VESBO PPR Piping Systems?
VESBO pipes and fittings comply with and are classified under the requirements of the following fire classifications:
- Class B2 according to DIN 4102
- Class E according to EN13501-1+A1
Under such classifications, it is normally inflammable and is capable of resisting, for a short period, a small flame attack without substantial flame spread.
In case of a fire outbreak of temperatures above 800°C, under ideal conditions and with sufficient oxygen, only carbon dioxide and water vapor are produced as the raw material of Polypropylene Random Copolymer is of a hydrocarbon chain. Toxic fumes or dioxin will not be emitted.
What does the term of SDR mean in PPR Piping Systems?
Standard Dimension Ratio (SDR) is a method of rating a pipe’s durability against pressure. The standard dimension ratio describes the correlation between the pipe dimension and the thickness of the pipe wall.
