HDPE WATER PIPES​

  • Overview
  • Specifications
  • Usage & Advantages

Polyethylene has become the most popular material of pipe distribution systems as it offers significant benefits compared to an alternative material. High-density polyethylene pipe (HDPE) can carry potable water, wastewater, slurries, chemicals, hazardous wastes, and compressed gases. 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.

FEATURES:

    1. Safe for drinking
    2. High flexibility.
    3. Lightweight
    4. Rustproof
    5. Super smooth
    6. Resistant to chemicals
    7. Long Living
    8. Relatively cheap
    9. Low Friction
    10. Sun Resistant
