Neltex is one of the most-visited brands at the Worldbex 2015. The company offered quick educational tours to curious visitors, especially with their eye-catching exhibit. A see-through tiny house that points out the important role of pipes, from electrical, water to sewerage.
Come to think of it, pipe work is only 3% of building an entire house but when one of your pipes is damaged or does not work well – it can damage a huge percentage of your home. Experienced home builders know well not too choose pipes based on price but quality. Neltex pipes, as we were told can last up to 50 years! Compared to cheap PVC pipes that easily breaks down when stepped on or through a short amount of time/stress. Reason is, cheap pipes contain more fillers than resin.
A tour of Neltex booth at Worldbex also reveals sustainable technologies such as their pipes that are all HMF “heavy metal free” certified. We’re talking about lead, mercury and the likes which are not only harmful to both end users and factory workers but also to the ecosystem.
Someone from Neltex (Glady’s) also mentioned how their company hopes to play a bigger role in nation building. For instance, DPWH uses concrete pipes that only last two years. Now I know why we never see the end of excavations that cause major traffic and headache. Imagine if the government opts to use pipes like Neltex that lasts for 50 years and guaranteed free of leakage because of their fitting technology.
It was mentioned in passing that Neltex was contracted to provide products to major projects like the City of Dreams, NAIA 3, and condominiums like those from SM Development Corporation. Nation building and pipes? Who knew! But as with other things, quality over quantity should be practiced as well as doing the best job when given the opportunity.
Neltex is proudly a Filipino company with their factory in the province of Cavite (where I live). It’s admirable how much information and inspiration they could share during Worldbex. Their exhibit is one of a kind but more than anything, the message of sustainability shines bright.
To learn more about Neltex, do visit their booth at Worldbex (Booth No. 710). If you take a photo of your tour and share it on their FB page, you even stand to win a prize.
