High density polyethylene pipe, or HDPE, is one of the best and most cost effective types of pipe on the market today. It is strong, extremely tough and very durable, and unlike other pipingmaterial does not rust, rot, pit or corrode. HDPE offers better overall resistance to corrosive acids, bases, salts, and the most aggressive naturally ocurring soils.
HDPE also has superior flow ratings over other pipe because its surfaces are smoother than steel, cast iron, ductile iron, or concrete. That is why a smaller HDPE pipe can carry an equivalent volumetric flow rate at the same pressure. The smoothness of the surface inhibits bacterial growth, resists scale and other biological build-ups within the pipe.
In ￼ we have extensive experience in the installation of polyethylene pipe;over 40 kilometers of pipe fusion and over 10 kilometers of pipe installation using horizontal directional drilling, make us the leader in polyethylene pipe in Guatemala. The main advantage of this pipe over other options is that the connections made (Thermofusion) are the strongest part of the tube.
