Excellent corrosion and chemical resistance. Inert to most acidic and alkaline solutions
Benefits of HDPE Pipes
No Joints means no leaks
HDPE pipe actually gains strength in lower temperatures and will expand at higher temperatures to avoid breaking
HDPE pipe is designed to bend to a radius of 25 times its diameter. This means fewer 90 degrees bends overall, less chance for water hammer, a reduction in leaks and easier installation, ideal for new construction.
HDPE pipes strength and flexibility allows the pipe to absorb vibrations and stress caused by soil movements. With its ability to be compressed or deformed without permanent damage, pipe has even withstood the destructive forces of earthquakes.
HDPE pipe can be buried at a shallow depth
There are not joints to pull apart – a distinct advantage. Where ledge rock prohibits excavation and very little cover is available
HDPE pipe can withstand long exposure to inclement weather conditions, excessive sunlight and ultraviolet rays, making it an excellent pipe for bridge crossings
Withstands full vacuum. HDPE pipe will not collapse, even under a full vacuum, when the correct size is used for a required application. This allows for perfect utilization as intake piping at pumps stations
