High density polyethylene (HDPE) has been used for municipal and industrial applications for almost 50 years. Fully fused joints create a leak-free, self-restrained, monolithic pipe system that allows the pipe to be pulled from one area to another with minimum disruption to traffic or the environment; the fused joint will also eliminate infiltration into the pipe and exfiltration into the environment.
Other benefits of AquaFuse HDPE systems include chemical, abrasion, fatigue, seismic and corrosion resistance. HDPE has been used in drinking water pipe applications for almost 50 years and now carries a 100 year design life! HDPE is specified and/or approved in AWWA C901, AWWA C906, NSF 14, NSF 16 and ASTM D3035. It is a proven product in rugged terrains, extreme climates and changing site environments.
