The life line for prosperity
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.

MDPE fittings are connectors that are used to join MDPE pipes together or connect them to other types of piping systems. These fittings are specifically designed for use with medium-density polyethylene pipes and are manufactured from the same material, ensuring compatibility and a secure, leak-free connection.
MDPE fittings are available in a range of sizes and shapes to suit various applications, such as elbows, tees, couplers, reducers, and end caps. They are commonly used in a range of industries, including water supply, gas distribution, and industrial processes.
MDPE fittings can be installed using various methods, including electrofusion, butt fusion, and mechanical compression fittings. The installation method used will depend on the size and application of the fitting and the site conditions. Proper installation and maintenance of MDPE fittings are essential to ensure a long-lasting, secure connection and to prevent leaks and other issues.
MDPE pipes are a type of plastic pipe made from medium-density polyethylene. These pipes are designed for the transportation of liquids and gases and are commonly used in a range of applications such as water supply, gas distribution, and industrial processes. MDPE pipes offer several advantages over other materials, including resistance to abrasion, stress cracking, and a range of chemicals, as well as flexibility, ease of installation, and high durability. They are commonly available in a range of diameters and lengths and can be installed using a variety of methods, including butt fusion, electrofusion, and mechanical compression fittings.
