On march 10th, was held the PE 100+ ASSOCIATION first webinar. The webinar was a great success and attracted a large audience.
PE100+ announces Robin Bresser (Borealis) has been appointed as the new President & Chairman of the Association as per February 9th, 2022. Robin has a long standing experience in the global...
PPXX Conference was held in Amsterdam, September 6-8, 2021. The summaries of all presented papers can be found here, on PE100+ Association website. The full papers and details can be found on the...
Along with providing a brief introduction to the association, the webinar will focus on the benefits of using pre-compounded PE100 materials certified by the association and highlight some of the problems that can occur when such materials are not used. It will then give an introduction to the different trenchless (No-Dig) technologies that can used to install PE100 pipes and liners in challenging conditions whilst minimising the environmental impact of the installation. The webinar is aimed at technical staff working for utility organisations, engineering consultants and contractors, but will be of interest to anyone involved in the PE pipe value chain.

Founded in 1999, PE100+ Association is a global industry organization made of leading PE manufacturers (today 14) whose objective is to promote consistent quality at the highest level in the production and the use of PE100 pipe material. Safety and quality play critical roles in PE pipe applications. In 1999, three leading PE producers took the initiative to build up the Association to guarantee that PE100+ pipe materials meet the highest possible requirements. By monitoring the most critical properties of enhanced requirements, PE 100+ Association is able to issue a “PE100+ Association Quality Materials List” on a regular basis.
Based on all the concerns detailed above, the PE100+ association approach is based upon the exclusive use of fully compounded PE100 resins that has been so successful in gas and water systems in Europe.
PE100 pipe compounds are usually produced on line using specialised equipment during the pelletisation process. This creates a consistent raw material to be used for quality pipe production thus providing this important peace of mind for the network owner.
