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.
