Australian market use hot-dipped deep galvanized steel couplers normally. Hot dipping process is used to increase the resistiveness of steel against corrosion, it also helps in increasing the life span of the fittings. The products must pass through series of stress tests so as to ensure their durability is in compliance with the AS1576.2 quality standards laid down for fittings.
