The Victaulic StrengThin™ 100 System
Safer, faster and easier to install, Victaulic® launches the StrengThin™ 100 mechanical piping system, further maximizing the efficiencies of choosing thin wall stainless steel pipe.

Victaulic, the world leader in mechanical pipe joining systems, is pleased to announce the first and only grooved pipe joining system of its kind: the
StrengThin 100 System, designed exclusively for jobs utilizing thin wall (2 and 3 mm) 304/316 stainless steel pipe.

Thin wall stainless steel pipe joining is an attractive option across European construction markets, particularly for chilled water, cooling, air and potable water systems. It increases the efficiency of on-site material handling and lowers costs from a total installation point of view.

However, welding thin wall stainless steel isn’t without its risks. Overheating the pipe and the need for chemicals to pickle and passivate the pipe to restore its corrosion resistance are just two of the challenges associated with the welding process. To address these industry challenges, Victaulic listened to its customers and created the StrengThin 100 system, the only grooved mechanical solution for joining thin wall stainless steel.

“The StrengThin 100 system will revolutionize thin wall stainless steel pipe joining,” says Barry van Jaarsveld, Victaulic Regional Manager Africa. “Contractors can still benefit from the efficiencies of using thin wall stainless steel pipe on their mechanical systems without the risks associated with welding.”

The StrengThin 100 system consists of a galvanized rigid coupling, featuring Victaulic propriety installation-ready™ technology. The coupling is rated up to 16 bar and suitable for temperatures ranging from -34°C to +121°C. The rest of the system includes a full line of stainless steel, lightweight fittings and valves. The system also makes use of a brand new pipe groove profile, which creates coupling engagement without the risk of pipe flare.

At launch, the system is available in sizes ranging from DN50 to DN150 for 2 mm wall 304/316 pipe. Sizes ranging from DN200 to DN300 for 3 mm wall pipe will become available later in the year.
