Trenchless Asia 2023 Paper and Presentation
Use of PE100+ Materials in Trenchless Technology Trenchless Asia 2023


PE100 pipes are widely used in the installation, rehabilitation and replacement of pressure systems. They can be installed using a variety of trenchless technologies and so the PE100+ Association developed an online guide to aid end users in selecting the most appropriate methods. The presentation will give an overview of methods that can be used to install PE100 pipes, along with a summary of the EN ISO 11295 family of standards and an introduction to the association’s online guide.


PE100 pipes are the most widely used material for the installation, rehabilitation and replacement of pressure pipes for water and gas supply and for pressure sewers. Such pipes can be installed using a broad range of trenchless technologies and hence the selection of the most appropriate method and identification of the correct standards can be a challenge for end user organisations.

The PE100+ Association, working with trenchless industry experts developed an online guide to educate end users about the different technologies. The guide also aids users in selecting appropriate trenchless methods for the use of PE100 pipes in both new installation and rehabilitation works. The paper and presentation will provide an overview of the trenchless methods that can be used to install PE100 pipes, together with a summary of the EN ISO 11295 family of standards that cover these methods and an introduction to the online guide.
