Meet the high requirements for corrosion resistance.
Salt water - a raw material with high material requirements for pipelines
Challenges in industrial applications
Due to its salt content, seawater makes special demands on the corrosion resistance of the material used in the respective pipeline. In this environment, alloys made of copper and nickel are particularly suitable. That is why Viega uses the alloy CuNi10Fe 1.6Mn for its seawater-resistant product Seapress.

Superior technology pro time savings and anti production downtimes
In industrial systems engineering, safe, fast and easy-to-use processes are favourable to ensure that production can be ramped up as quickly as possible. However, many pipelines are still installed using conventional connecting techniques, such as welding. And this is still the case despite the fact that cold-press technology from Viega offers numerous advantages – it is cleaner, more efficient and safer in every respect. It also minimises the challenges posed by shortages of skilled workers and production downtimes.
Areas of use such as shipbuilding and other offshore systems place particularly high demands on the safety, quality and reliability of pipe systems.
In the field of shipbuilding, Viega offers numerous different systems for wide-ranging applications on ships and offshore – including CuNi systems for seawater, copper and stainless steel for drinking water, heating and cooling or press connectors for thick-walled steel pipes. Thanks to the efficient press systems, there is no need for complicated joining techniques such as welding, soldering and thread cutting. And press technology offers significant benefits with regard to occupational safety as well.
