Our bulkheads are manufactured with virgin material. Which ensures high
quality material, not second or third generation like many other
bulkheads, which tend to crack.
Our bulkheads are made of ABS plastic. ABS is used in the plumbing
industry. Because the bulkheads are black ABS, they are also UV
stabilized, which is different from PVC which have a UV stabilizer in
the material itself. Due to the UV stabilizer, our bulkheads will not
crack when exposed in the elements.
The thickness of our bulkheads are the best feature. They are rated
as schedule 40 plus. The bulkheads are actually larger than what you can
buy schedule 40. The gaskets are duraflex which will not dry rot or
crack. It is a high grade of flexibility material that lasts over ten
years without dry rotting.
The bulkheads also contain a thicker grade nut than other comparable
bulkheads, which have double the nut capacity per square pound for
torque. These nuts won’t strip because they are double thickness and
double the strength of many other comparable bulkheads.
