HDPE (high-density polyethylene) pipe is a type of flexible or straight length plastic pipe used for fluid and gas transfer and is often used to replace aging concrete or steel pipelines. They are made from the high-density polyethylene. Its high level of impermeability and strong molecular bond make it suitable for high pressure piping systems.
Commonly used in making water pipes, containers for various goods, fibre optic cale ducts etc.
IS 4984:2016 & ISO 4427 for Pressure water piping systems
IS 14885 PE pipes for the supply of gaseous fuels
IS 14333 for Sewerage pipes
IS 14930 for cable ducts
IS 14151 Irrigation Sprinkler pipes
They are affordable, High-Quality, High density, Operate on Harsh Temperatures, Non-Leaching, UV Resistant, Resistant to most Chemicals, Stiff Material and Amazing Durability.
Susceptible to stress cracking, Not Biodegradable, Highly Flammable etc.
PE63, PE80 & PE100
PN 2, PN 2.5, PN 3.2, PN 4, PN5, PN 6, PN 8, PN 10, PN 12,5, PN 16, PN 20 and can be also manufactured in desired pressure number (PN) as special HDPE Pipe production.
HDPE pipe is generally available in coil form for up to 90mm diameter. For above 90mm diameter pipes it is available in straight lengths of 6 or 12 metres.
Yes, HDPE pipes are completely free from BPA and are therefore safe for applications like drinking water, milk, food containers for human consumption
Generally speaking, HDPE pipe is butt fused by applying heat to pipe ends and then pushing the pipe ends together with a certain pressure to make a permanent butt fusion joint. HDPE pipe also joined by using Compression couplers, Electro Fusion Fittings
HDPE products are safe. They are not known to emit any chemicals into foods or drinks. This plastic also often used for milk cans, Oil cans, Detergents, Shampoo bottles, pharmaceutical bottles etc.
Yes, HDPE pipe waste is shredded, melted down and then cooled into pellets which can be used in manufacturing.
Yes, Black HDPE pressure pipes are UV resistant.
HDPE water pipes may be used in both above and underground installations. It is protected from UV (ultraviolet) and generally meets the hydrostatic pressure requirements.
HDPE pipe is often estimated to last 50 years, they are in fact more likely to have life expectancies of 100 years or more.
Yes, HDPE pipes are certified for potable water applications.
