Why are plastic pipes chamfered?

‘Chamfering’ plastic pipes is the process of making the edge smooth. When plastic pipes are chamfered, they are easier to maintain and work with. They are best chamfered prior to assembly as it enables you to connect them quicker.

To chamfer a plastic pipe, the outer end is filed or scraped to remove sharp edges that can affect the quality of the join. Plastic pipes with a chamfered end prevents leaking and helps you to avoid big, costly problems further down the line.
