2006 Washington DC : High Melt Strength PE-100 Pipe Resin
Author(s) : Michie, Chang, McNeil
PE-100 pipe resins, through different molecular architecture, have significantly higher
performance properties than traditional chrome (Cr) catalyzed products. Improvements in
slow crack growth (SCG), rapid crack propagation (RCP) as well as excellent high
temperature burst performance expand the performance...
2006 Washington DC : Largest PE100 Project in North America
Author(s) : Chang, Zhou, Michie
MTD Pipeline LLC is a joint venture between Martin Marietta Magnesia Specialties LLC
and The Dow Chemical Company. A nearly 30 miles of high density polyethylene
(HDPE) pipeline project in northern Michigan is serving as the latest example of
technology evolution for polyethylene (PE) pipe used in underground pipe...
2006 Washington DC : Performance of Scratched HDPE Pressure Pipe
Author(s) : Zhou, Chang
High density polyethylene (HDPE) pressure pipe may be scratched during installation. The scratches reduce the wall thickness and therefore increase the dimension ratio (SDR pipe). 1” SDR 11 pipe samples extruded from bimodal PE100/PE4710 and unimodal PE80/PE3408 pipe materials were used to investigate the effect of...
