How Does Victaulic Support ESG Principles?

Victaulic, the inventor of grooved pipe-joining, supports environmental, social, and governance objectives at every stage of a product’s lifecycle, from research and development, through product manufacturing, system installation, and efficient operations, for the life of a system.

Victaulic couplings are manufactured using recycled materials with 90% of our ductile iron coming from post-consumer content. Our gaskets offer superior protection from fugitive emissions over flanged joints and Victaulic connections generate zero carbon emissions during installation. Additionally, Victaulic’s focus on safety sets us apart by reducing risk on the job site.

Fugitive Emissions

Victaulic makes significant investments in product and materials testing to ensure the safe and reliable use of its products in a wide range of applications and systems. To this end, Victaulic contracted the services of an independent, 3rd party laboratory to conduct fugitive emissions testing on our Victaulic pipe joints as a comparative evaluation with standard ANSI Class 600 flanges.

Zero Carbon Emissions

Victaulic joints, whether on steel or HDPE pipe, eliminate environmentally hazardous emissions generated by the practice of welding or fusing pipe joints. Victaulic joints eliminate the dangerous gases and fumes that are byproducts of the welding process, creating a safer working environment while reducing construction time and costs.

Victaulic Elastomers and API-607

Fire exposure tests including API-607 and UL-852 are used routinely to qualify new seal materials and coupling designs that are intended for high hazard applications where the inherent risk of fire is always present. Such standards can involve direct flame temperatures exceeding 871°C (1600°F) as part of the qualification requirements for components used in dry fire protection systems.

Support Environmental, Social, and Governance Principals

For many reasons, Victaulic solutions can play an important role in your ESG strategy and contribute to the protection of our natural resources. To learn more, check out our new white paper on ESG objectives at
