Pipe is lighter than traditional piping material, and results in substantial savings for handling and faster, less coslty installation. Since HDPE is not brittle material, it can be installed with bends and over uneven terrain easily in continous lengths without additional welds or couplings. Polyethylene pipe and fittings are well suited for use in slurry applications where its inhernet toughness and abrasion resistance can be fully utilized.

HDPE pipe is very resilient and resistant to damage caused by external loads, vibrations, and from pressure surges such as water hammer. HPDE offers highly desirable properties that make it the preferred choice of pipeline material. The inherent properties of HDPE make it extremely resistant to the scale build up that leads to decreased flow rates and is impervious to most aggressive chemicals and corrosive elements. An added benefit is that HDPE fittings are more chemically resistant than stainless steel.

The exceptionally smooth inner surface offers minimal resistance to flow and the flow remains relatively constant for the life of the pipe, unlike other piping products that must allow for a reduction in flow capacity over time. When using HDPE pipe a higher maximum flow rate for a given size can be expected compared to other types of piping materials. Polyethylene butt, socket and sidewall fusion creates a joining system stronger than the pipe itself making a leak proof, fully restrained joint.
