    Abstract contents and format:

    • Ensure to uphold the PPCA Principle of Comparison.
      • Plastic Pipes Conference Association – guidance on material comparisons. This applies to abstracts, papers and presentations.  PPCA would like to remind all of the guidance regarding the issue of comparisons. The PPCA BOD confirms that direct comparisons  being made between the performance of different primary plastic materials used for the same product application is not allowed. The fundamental principle has always been to promote all plastic pipe materials during the Plastic Pipes Conference. However, this does not apply to comparisons between different variants of the same material (e.g. PVC and PVC-O or PP and PP-MD) or of course comparisons with other “non-plastic” alternative materials.
