According to Blucher Australia , stainless steel plumbing and drainage is the logical choice in demanding plumbing environments where temperature, hygiene, strength and durability are critical factors.  

While stainless steel plumbing may cost more initially, it offers better ROI in terms of system lifecycle.  

Fire resistance:  

Unlike PVC and other plastics, stainless steel won't melt or emit toxic fumes in a fire.  


Stainless steel has proven hygienic properties in medical, food processing and pharmaceutical applications.  

With the Mapress press-fitting system, the tight, moulded join between tube and fittings also means fewer cavities, significantly reducing the risk of developing hygiene problems.  

Blucher stainless steel plumbing systems are designed to facilitate the safe and hygienic disposal of a range of waste fluids with hot, cold or corrosive properties, thereby helping to eliminate contamination.  

Corrosion resistance:  

The Mapress system uses high alloy grades of stainless steel to resist corrosion from most acids and alkaline solutions, performing efficiently even in chloride-bearing environments as well as at elevated temperatures and pressures.  

Versatile carrier:  

The Mapress pressure system features a combination of high grade stainless steel, precision pipe joining and specially designed rubber ring seals so that it can carry water, gases, fuels and solvents safely.  


Stainless steel is a durable, low maintenance material and scores well in a lifecycle cost comparison.  

High and low temperature resistance:  

Blucher stainless steel drainage systems and Mapress pressure systems resist scaling and maintain high strength at very high temperatures, while showing exceptional toughness at cryogenic temperatures.  


Stainless steel plumbing systems are recyclable and reusable with a long lifecycle.
