Pressure pipe systems

Since the mid-1950s, various types of polyethylene have been used to manufacture pressure pipe systems, starting with relatively small diameter water pipes. Over time, modern polyethylene PE80 and PE100 grades were developed, whilst the use of polyethylene continued to grow into a range of applications that now includes:

  • Water and gas distribution networks
  • Water transmission pipelines
  • Sewage and drainage pipelines
  • Various types of outfall and intake pipelines
  • The lining of new and existing pipelines
  • A variety of industrial applications including oil and gas, mining slurry and cooling water pipelines

Developments in material and production technologies have allowed pipe manufacturers to produce ever larger diameter pipes. Today, international standards cover pipes of up to 2,000 mm OD (Outside Diameter), with a number of manufacturers being able to produce even larger pipes.
