Chemical Resistance

HDPE Pipe technical guidance (High quality Polyethylene Pipes)
 

Is PE pipe resistant to chemicals commonly found in soils?

PE100 pipes have excellent resistance to naturally occurring chemicals found in the soil. The polymer and pipe manufacturers have extensive test data regarding the chemical resistance of the base polymer and PE100 pipe. Advice can be sought if there is any doubt as to the suitability of PE100 for a particular application or environment. ISO Technical Report 10358 includes an authoritative table identifying the resistance of PE, and other plastic materials, to a large range of chemicals.

Is PE pipe resistant to chemicals commonly used for disinfection and water treatment?

PE pipe is generally resistant to the chemicals commonly used for water treatment and disinfection. Disinfection of water mains is a frequent operation. Disinfection takes place when commissioning newly constructed potable water mains; mains that havebeen removed from service for planned repairs or for maintenance that exposes them to contamination; mains that have undergone emergency repairs due to physical failure; and mains that, under normal operation, continue to show the presence of...
