Press Release Summary:
- Include fittings in sizes 1-1/2" - 4" in FR Fuseal polypropylene that connects with both FR and NFR pipes
- Feature small dimension of the outer collar which not only allows for installation in tight spaces but makes system layout simple for contractors and piping designers
- Provides chemical resistance and physical properties which makes it ideal for handling corrosive waste mixtures of acids, bases and solvents present in laboratories

New Mechanical Joint System for Waste Drainage Pipe Reduces Installation Time and Costs
Irvine, Calif. - Dec. 18, 2019 - GF Piping GF Piping Systems has introduced Fuseal® Fast-Lock™ Polypropylene, an innovative mechanical joint (MJ) system for waste drainage systems that significantly cuts down on installation time and costs.
The Fast-Lock system includes new fittings in sizes 1-1/2" - 4" in flame retardant (FR) Fuseal polypropylene that connects with both FR and non-flame retardant (NFR) pipes. The only tools needed for pipe installation is an off-the-shelf cordless drill or hand tool.
"Fast-Lock is different from anything else on the market - somewhat similar products require more steps and are therefore more time-consuming," explains Alphonse Anderson, Engineered Piping Systems Product Manager for GF Piping Systems. "The new system fulfills a market need for an easier-than-ever method of corrosive waste piping installation. For contractors, time is money, so any savings on labor is highly valued."
The system is pressure rated due to the design of the sealing and clamping mechanism of the Fast-Lock Collar. This is a necessary property to maintain proper operation of vacuum and pumped draining systems that have intermittent pressure requirements.
Another outstanding feature of the Fast-Lock system is the small dimension of the outer collar, which not only allows for installation in tighter spaces, but also makes system layout easier for contractors and piping designers. The Fuseal Fast-Lock system comes standard with the mechanical joint collar, which can be easily converted to an electrofusion joint by changing to an electrofusion collar in the field.
Fuseal PP piping systems have excellent chemical resistance and physical properties which make it ideal for handling corrosive waste mixtures of acids, bases and solvents present in laboratory, industrial or food and beverage processing DWV applications.
