High-density polyethylene pipe (HDPE) can carry potable water, wastewater, slurries, chemicals, hazardeous wastes, and compressed gases. In fact, polyethylene pipe has a long and distinguished history of service to the gas, oil, mining and other industries. It has the lowest repair frequency per mile of pipe per year compared with all other pressure pipe materials used for urban gas distribution.
Polyethylene is strong, extremely tough and very durable. Whether you’re looking for long service, trouble-free installation, flexibility, resistance to chemicals or a myriad of other features, high-density polyethylene pipe will meet all your requirements.
*DUCTILITY AND TOUGHNESS
Polyethylene pipes and fittings are inherently tough, resilient and resistant to damage caused by external loads, vibrations, and from pressure surges such as water hammer. Even in cold weather polyethylene pipe is tolerant to handling and bending.
*MANUFACTURED UNDER AWWA, NSF, ASTM, AGA, EPA, DNR, DOT, API, FM, CSA AND OTHER NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED STANDARDS.
Polyethylene pipe is listed and approved by the standards or committees of the agencies listed above.
