A multilayer pipe named Excel Plus® made with a protective inner layer in PVDF was developed by GPS PE Pipe Systems, an Aliaxis group subsidiary. In order to assess, in accelerated mode, the resistance of this pipe against chlorine dioxide, a test sample exposure facility was built at the Aliaxis corporate R&D centre. The aim of this presentation is to describe the product and testing, and to report the findings in order to assist a better understanding of the behaviour of multilayer plastic pipes.
