PE Pipe Manual

HDPE Pipe technical guidance (High quality Polyethylene Pipes)
 

Welcome to PE & HDPE Pipe Model

Guidance for PE Pressure Pipe Systems a unique and comprehensive information tool

The PE Pipe Model, developed by the PE100+ Association with inputs from many industry experts, includes the most frequently asked questions and answers (Q&A's) of all the elements through the pipe system value chain: design, materials, construction, operation & maintenance, and environmental issues.

A lot of relevant graphics, photos, and standards are built into the model. This is a living tool, which a group of pipe industry experts will be reviewing and updating on a regular basis.
