The first NA produced bimodal MDPE pipe resin developed through unique molecular architecture offers significantly better resistance to slow crack growth and rapid crack propagation than traditional unimodal PE2708 / PE2406 products. This high performance resin extrudes well on conventional equipment, has good melt strength, and the pipes made can be cross-fused to various pipe grades commonly available on the market. Details in performance properties of this PE 2708 / PE80 resin will be discussed in this paper.
