GF Wavin PE fittings

Jointing takes place either via electro-fusion or butt-fusion. Electro-fusion fittings contain wires which are energized/heated via an electro-fusion control box, resulting in a molten pool of materials of fitting and pipe. Butt-fusion fittings (spigot fittings) use the butt-fusion process. Both types of GF Wavin PE fittings produce a fully fused and leak free joint.
