AGRU Polyethylene Pipes, Valves and Polyethylene Pipe Fittings

Polyethylene is now in widespread use for industrial pipework systems, as well as for buried gas and water pipelines, where it is the dominant material.

One of the major benefits is that Polyethylene is virtually unbreakable due to impact at temperatures above 5ºC, and remains very tough at temperatures as low as -40ºC. It is also exceptionally resistant to abrasion, and will outlast steel or other hard materials in most slurry handling applications.

Polyethylene is relatively low in weight, and its flexibility makes it suitable for temporary pipelines which are lain on rough ground or where buried in unstable ground conditions.

It has very good chemical resistance, and will withstand most acids and caustic substances. It is insoluble in all organic and inorganic solvents at 20ºC, but it will not resist strong oxidising acids.

Polyethylene is joined by heat, and both socket fusion, butt fusion welding and electrofusion equipment is available for sale or hire.
