Material Polyethylene (PE) Pipe

Polyethylene (PE), the most popular plastic resin in the world, is the second most widely used thermoplastic piping material and has been successfully used in piping applications for more than 60 years. PE pipe is available in many forms, colors and pressure ratings. PE is the preferred piping material for handling natural gas distribution, slip-lining and for large intake and outtake power plant piping. The primary method of joining PE piping is heat fusion, although in small diameters for low pressure applications, mechanical joints are often used.

PE pipe is manufactured in sizes ranging from ½” to 120” and size can be based on Controlled Outside Diameter (DR), Iron Pipe Size Inside Diameter, IPS-ID (SIDR) and Copper Tube Size Outside Diameter (CTS). Smaller diameters are available in coils up to 500’ and the larger sizes are available in lengths cut to order (typically 20’).
