Our feedback on the November trade fairs: EIMA and METS
November was a highly satisfactory month for Bucchi, with our participation in two of the most important international trade fairs of the sector. Below are a few thoughts on the experience.
The first was EIMA International, the International Agricultural and Gardening Machinery Exhibition. It was held in association with Bolognafiere, from 9 to 13 November.
Our Sales Manager for Italy, Mr. Nicola Cristoferi, commented on his participation as follows:
“There was great enthusiasm at the Bucchi stand during the 44th edition of EIMA International, a trade fair which boasts the highest ever visitor numbers this year. There were lots of opportunities for new partnerships, as well as valuable moments of dialogue and sharing with established partners. Bucchi confirms its ability to stand out with a business proposal which is always cutting-edge and innovative. We want to thank all our customers and all our staff members for the results achieved together and confirm the appointment for the next edition, which will always be held in BolognaFiere from 6 to 10 November 2024”.
From 15 to 17 November we participated in METS, the trade fair par excellence for the marine engineering and navigation sectors, held at the Amsterdam RAI Exhibition and Convention Centre.
From there, our Sales Manager, Mr. Massimiliano Di Gioia, told us about his experience:
“Following the difficult 2021 edition because of Covid, the feedback from METS this year was excellent. The trade fair, dedicated to supplies in the marine sector, is an international point of reference for component manufacturers and for the designers of yachts and various boats.

Elastomers EDPM, NBR, FPM: the raw materials of the BUCCHI seals
The choice of materials for seals is essential, above all in the case of products and fittings for specific applications and sectors.
A suitable raw material is in fact an indispensable feature to ensure the quality, longevity and performance of the product. For this reason, the choice of BUCCHI S.r.l. to produce and use elastomer seals allows to create high-level products with extraordinary performance.
In general, the main characteristics of elastomer seals concern:
• the ability to adapt to dynamic movements, or to undergo significant elastic deformations, without changing the original shape of the gaskets
• resistance to low temperatures
• resistance to extreme thermal conditions
Let’s see in detail, together with Dr. Anna Valentini, Head of Laboratory and Quality Control of BUCCHI Srl, the rubber raw materials used in the company.
This elastomer is a copolymer of butadiene and acrylonitrile and is used for most seal applications for conventional fluids.
NBR elastomers offer good properties of compression, tear and abrasion resistance; good flexibility and high breaking load (up to 210kg cm²).
The operating temperature varies from -30 ° to + 100 ° C, and for a short time up to 120 ° C.
NBR seals are impermeable to gases and present an excellent chemical resistance in the presence of town gas, butane, propane, fatty acids, water and detergents.
It is an ethylene and propylene-based rubber plus a third monomer (diene). For its chemical structure it is particularly resistant to fluids such as water and vapour. The gaskets in E.P.D.M. they have a high resistance to permanent deformation and a good breaking load (up to 180 kg cm2), with an operating temperature from -45 ° to + 130 ° C, up to peaks of + 150 ° C.
The EPDM compound offers a versatile solution and resists the corrosive action of chemical agents, oxidation, the ozone, heat, heat ageing; its resistance to high concentration acids is also good.
However, it must be emphasized that this material is not compatible in applications with gasoline, lubricating oils, aromatic solvents and hydrocarbons.
This fluorinated elastomer possesses an exceptional resistance to heat and to atmospheric and chemical agents. It has a low permanent deformation and a breaking load of over 140 kg cm2.
The operating temperature varies from -30 ° to + 200 ° C, up to peaks of + 280 ° C.
Fluorinated elastomers have an excellent chemical resistance in the presence of lubricating oils, aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, petrol, hydraulic liquids not readily flammable, caustic soda, formaldehyde, chloroform, acids and numerous other chemical products. Their resistance to oxidation, ozone, atmospheric agents and ageing in sunlight is outstanding.
The FPM compound is not recommended in contact with low molecular weight esters, ethers, ketones, and amines.

Raw materials of BUCCHI S.r.l. fittings: characteristics and advantages compared to traditional materials
All BUCCHI products are designed and produced by carefully selecting the raw materials used in the production process, to meet the highest and most stringent quality standards requested by the market.
Given the importance and versatility of BUCCHI fittings, pipes, and pipe/fitting systems for a wide range of uses, it is worth underlining all the advantages of the raw materials used, compared to traditional materials, in particular brass and PVC.
Inside our company, Dr. Anna Valentini works in the laboratory to analyse materials and products. Thanks to her help, we can outline the characteristics of every material used to make our products, which she describes as follows.
Polyamide PA66 is a material with high rigidity and hardness, resistant to abrasion, wear and fatigue. It has a low coefficient of friction and is resistant to corrosion. It also has good electrical, mechanical and thermal characteristics.
Products made of PA66 can be used instead of brass products, with the advantage of being lighter, avoiding the formation of limestone incrustations, being more resistant to corrosion and atmospheric agents. The chemical formulation also guarantees total non-toxicity and suitability for contact with liquid food.
Polypropylene is a material with good mechanical strength and excellent chemical resistance; it also has a high impact resistance and good dimensional stability.
Compared to PVC fittings, they have the advantage of superior mechanical and bending strength, which makes it possible to use them at a wider range of operating temperatures. The chemical formulation also guarantees total non-toxicity and suitability for contact with liquid food.
Random polypropylene (PPR) is part of the propylene family but has a greater resistance to low temperatures.
It is one of the most electrically insulating materials and is insensitive to electrostatic and electromagnetic fields of any frequency. It also has a high resistance to chemical agents and is particularly inert even with respect to contact problems with food substances. These properties, together with the thermal and mechanical properties, make the PPR particularly suitable for use in the plumbing and heating sector.

Nautical fittings: changes due to the new ISO 9093-2020 standard
In operation since December 2020, the new ISO 9093 standard dedicated to nautical fittings presents different and essential updates compared to the previous ISO 9090 standard.
The standard specifies the requirements for through-hull fittings, hull valves, connections for hoses, their fittings and their installation in small units having a hull of up to 24m in length.
All parts and components of small vessels (from embarkation lines and water discharge, to drainage water outlets) must respond to specific requirements, in respect of the characteristics of the materials, resistance, test and use of same. Specifically:
The materials used for the fittings (valves, through-hulls, hose adaptor and fittings used below the waterline) must be resistant to corrosion regardless of the fluid conveyed.
Combination of materials
Metal materials, which combined (for example when using metal clamps) can lead to galvanic corrosion, must be isolated. The use of non-metallic materials must bear in mind correct seizure.
Resistance to mechanical stress
Non-metallic valves, through-hulls and hose connectors must meet the prescribed strength test.
The operating temperature range is defined from 0 ° C to 60 ° C.
The standard moves exactly in the direction brought forward by BUCCHI S.r.l, in the successful choice of using technopolymer products for the nautical sector, more advantageous and efficient than traditional metal fittings: all BUCCHI products for use on pleasure boats with a length of less than 24 meters are subject to the inspection provided for in ISO 9093 and are certified BUREAU VERITAS and respond effectively to the resistance tests and to the range of operating temperatures required by the standard.

Polymers VS Metals in the nautical sector – The winning choice by BUCCHI
Applications intended for the nautical sector are among those subject to the most intense mechanical, thermal and environmental stress: in addition to stress deriving from the use itself, the effects of water, weathering and solar radiation also need to be considered.
The nautical sector is also among those that are heading towards greater innovation: the plumbing systems of boats are increasingly sophisticated and the electrical systems and electronic systems are technologically more advanced and delicate.
For this reason, the choice of accessories for the nautical sector must be careful, and based on a good knowledge of products and materials. BUCCHI is among the pioneers in Europe as regards the introduction of techno-polymer products for the nautical sector.
The advantages of these raw materials, compared to bronze and brass, traditionally used in the nautical sector, are multiple: absence of oxidation, electrical insulation without galvanic corrosion, reduced condensation, high elasticity, low weight, greater versatility, high tensile resistance, maximum lightness and excellent resistance to high temperatures. Traditional metallic materials can cause serious damage to boats, from corrosion of the pipes to blockage of handles and valves, with consequent (and costly) repair work. The winning choice is the purchase of techno-polymer products, which guarantee excellent results and high levels of performance, for any application in conditioning and cooling systems or water distribution.
BUCCHI products and accessories are also constantly checked and controlled, and the production process is internal to the company, with constant study and continuous development.

BDFast®, the innovation in quick hose jointing
BDFast® patented technology is a new generation of fittings for quick hose-jointing that combines high product quality and user friendliness. The BDFast® (PN 10) hose nozzle compression fittings in polypropylene secure the hose without the traditional metal clamp: the innovative clinching system allows to push-fit the fittings on uneven hose surfaces, be they single-layer, with PVC shockproof reinforcement or with metal spiral.
The BDFast® fittings have excellent technical and mechanical characteristics, guaranteeing high performance both indoors and outdoors:
10 BAR operating pressure, flexibility of temperature, guaranteed hydraulic seal, mechanical seal resistant to vibrations, stress, shocks and pulling of the delivery pipe.
Reliability and high performance, combined with user friendliness: to connect an appliance to a hose with BDFast® simply screw the fitting onto the machine (with the possible addition of sealant if necessary), loosen the ring nut slightly, push-fit the hose until it reaches the mechanical stop and tighten the ring nut completely by hand. For effective tightening in larger sizes, the appropriate tightening spanner will be used.
BDFast® products allow for considerable time-saving both during assembly and during disassembly, for example in the case of maintenance: compared to traditional hose nozzles, simply loosen the ring nut and remove the hose, without damaging the system.

Quick Joints fittings: the new generation of feed-through fittings
QJ® is the quick push-in fitting polypropylene (PP) coupling, for tanks and containers in PE, steel tanks, fuel tanks and IBC containers to store and transport water and fluids.
Benefits compared to a traditional tank connection:
The QJ® is push-fitted exclusively from the outside of the wall making it unnecessary to work on both sides of the tank wall. The QJ® fittings can also fit all plastic or steel tanks for storing liquids, with a thickness between 2 and 10 mm.
The reduced male female version is the ideal solution for inserting rigid internal suction pipes or external taps with a male thread.
It is possible to push-fit the QJ® in just three seconds from the outside of the tank and with the commitment of a single operator.
The large variety of materials is matched by a wide range of sizes, from 3/8 of an inch to two inches, with male or female threads. The techno-polymers used and the different types of gaskets allow for use of these fittings in the automotive sector, for shaped tanks, for oil and diesel.
The QJ® fittings, thanks to the gasket adaptable to the surface of the hole and variable in its cross-section, also guarantee water tightness on irregular walls with variations in thickness. They are the optimal solution for the maintenance and replacement of faulty metal inserts, guaranteeing maximum tightness reliability.

BUCCHI MAROC: growth and expansion in the Moroccan construction sector
The showroom and warehouse of Tèmara is an important platform for BUCCHI S.r.l. that had already opened up to the Moroccan market in 2017 with products of the tech evolution® range for hot and cold-water distribution in construction.
The recent expansion of the warehouse at the local office of Temara and the steady growth of the sales office is allowing BUCCHI MAROC to increase its stocks and, consequently, to deliver throughout Morocco in shorter timeframes, in line with the recent and fast development of the Moroccan construction sector.
The products of the Tech Evolution® Line for the distribution of hot and cold water in construction are now well known and requested by many construction companies, installers and designers from the North African country. The new sales network has succeeded, with the aid of branch manager Davide Bigoni, to close important orders for new properties in Casablanca. Here, Bucchi pipes and fittings in PPR, with diameters between 16 and 160 mm, are showing their validity and ease of installation thanks to the socket welding system.
For Massimiliano di Gioia, Export Manager of BUCCHI S.r.l., the setback caused by Covid19 and the continuation of restrictive measures issued by the Moroccan government, combined with the cancellation of local trade fairs and new import regulations, are temporarily slowing down some activities. We are hoping for a quick recovery that can quickly lead to pre Covid-19 growth rates, which have characterised the African nation as an excellent market for the BUCCHI range.
un ottimo mercato per la gamma BUCCHI.
