PE Pipes & Fittings
Ori-Plast manufactures a wide range of Polyethylene pipes both High Density (HDPE) & Medium Density (MDPE) conforming to various standards viz., BIS, BS, DIN & ISO to name a few.
Polyethylene is a thermoplastic polymer consisting of long chains of ethylene or ethane. It is a wax like thermoplastic with density varying from 934.0kg/m³ to 960.0kg/m³ which is less than the density of water. The only two additives that are added to polyethylene are Carbon Black, within the range limit of 2-3% in order to add reinforcement and to increase polyethylene’s weathering properties and trace amounts of anti-oxidant.
HDPE has a relatively high molecular weight compared to MDPE and is superior in terms of abrasion resistance and impact strength. It is also strongly resistant to stress cracking and has low creep rupture properties. It has excellent insulation properties over a wide range of frequencies and is not chemically active. HDPE pipes are one of the two largest thermoplastic pipelines available and by far the most versatile.
