HDPE pipes have been widely used in all fields of our life, the mainly reason is that it has unique futures and better performance than traditional pipes. This passage introduce some points of its characteristics: convenient transportation, no leakage, good low temperature impact resistance, chemical resistance, wear resistance, good flexibility, small water flow resistance, ductility and toughness and multiple construction methods.


If you want to know the details of HDPE pipes’ performance characteristics, please read this passage carefully, I believe this passage will five you a satisfying answer. I hope this passage will help you in the process of selecting HDPE pipes or consider whether buy HDPE pipes or not.


Convenient transportation

HDPE pipes are lighter in weight than pipes such as concrete pipes and steel pipes. This makes the transportation and installation process of the pipeline easier, reduces the manpower and equipment requirements, reduces construction costs, and is more economical.


No leakage

Polyethylene pipes are usually joined by hot melt. The joint of the HDPE pipe after connection is higher than the pipe itself, and this connection method reduces the cost and is quick and convenient compared with other materials.


Good low temperature impact resistance

Polyethylene has a very low temperature embrittlement temperature and can be used from -60 degrees Celsius to 60 degrees Celsius. During winter construction, the brittle fracture of the pipe does not occur because of the impact resistance of the material.


Chemical resistance

 HDPE has excellent corrosion resistance and the chemicals present in the soil do not cause any degradation to the pipeline. At the same time, polyethylene is an electrical insulator that does not rust or electrochemically corrode. In addition, it does not promote the growth of algae or bacteria. It has good resistance to many organic substances such as solvents and fuels. This also makes it easy to maintain in the future.


Wear resistance

According to research, the wear resistance of HDPE pipes is four times that of steel pipes. HDPE has better wear resistance when transporting mud, which means that HDPE pipe has a longer service life than traditional pipes and is more economical.


Good flexibility

The flexibility of the HDPE pipe makes it easy to bend. In engineering, we can bypass the obstacle by changing the direction of the pipe. In many cases, the flexibility of the pipe can reduce the amount of pipe and reduce the installation cost.


Small water flow resistance

Because polyethylene is smoother than steel, concrete and other materials, it has a higher conveying capacity than conventional pipes, reducing the pressure loss and water loss of the pipeline. The excellent chemical resistance of the HDPE tube combined with the "non-stick" surface virtually eliminates scaling and pitting.


Ductility and toughness

Polyethylene pipes and fittings are resilient and resilient, which helps it resist external pressure and reduce damage due to pressure fluctuations. It is more suitable for use in environments where the geology is easily changed.


Multiple construction methods

HDPE pipe has a variety of construction techniques. In addition to the traditional excavation method, a variety of new non-excavation technologies such as pipe jacking and directional drilling can be used for construction. The location offers a whole new range of options, so HDPE tubes are used in a wider range of applications.
