Lifetime Analysis # 2001 Munich
The lifetime of plastic pipes has been studied at Bodycote Polymer AB (formerly Studsvik Polymer AB) for more than 27 years. This paper presents some of the factors found to control the lifetime of plastic pipes. How to extrapolate the lifetime of plastic pipes will be presented and discussed. A question will also be raised with regards to the test method used in order to determine the lifetime for multi-layer pipes based on an aluminium layer.
