PE-RT, A New Class of PE for Hot Water Pipes - 2001 [PE]

# 2001 Munich

Developments in catalyst and process technology have resulted in a new highly differentiated product family based on ethylene-α-olefin copolymers. This paper reports on the key attributes of these materials. These polymers show superior Long Term Hydrostatic Strength at higher temperatures, without the need for crosslinking. This results in significant processing advantages. Such materials can be used in all classes of hot water pipe and technical pipe applications.

Analysis of polyethylene (PE) pipes ductile failure (ballooning) suggests that it is directly related to the delayed necking phenomena and time to ductile failure of PE pipe can be evaluated as the time to delayed necking. The necking in polyethylene (PE) is studied under displacement control (ramp test) and load...
