White external colouring removes the need for external paint

SeaDrain White drainage system reduces bacterial contamination, alleges GF Piping

Made from non-corroding thermoplastic, the SeaDrain White system for black and gray water drainage is said to reduce the risk of bacterial contamination on board ships.

Created by GF Piping for use in cruise ships, ferries, and luxury yacht installations, factory tests over 100 psi (6 bar) have been conducted on the solution that is engineered for a minimum of 25 years service life.

‘SeaDrain White is the first purpose-built thermoplastic piping system specifically engineered for marine drainage applications’, says Mike Beutler, GF Piping’s innovation lead – customer solutions. 'With applications from service lockers, open decks, balconies, class A0, and class A60 fire-protected decks, to customer-facing areas, you can see the difference plastic makes over time versus metal.’


Said to be paint and corrosion free, the smooth inner surface of SeaDrain White avoids encrustation; white external colouring with UV resistance protects against discoloration.


SeaDrain White works with SeaDrain Fast-Lock to create a polypropylene plastic push-fit and lock mechanism, which can be used in new builds as well as retrofit constructions.
