MDPE is the acronym for Medium Density Polyethylene. Medium Density Polyethylene is a type of Polyethylene defined by a density range of 0.926-0.940 g/cm3 making it a thermoplastic which is tough and flexible. It is suitable for industrial applications with benefits over steel pipework including installation time and its immunity to corrosion. MDPE has good shock and drop resistance properties, it is light weight, not notch sensitive, has excellent resistance to chemicals and stress cracking and is designed against surge and fatigue conditions. MDPE provides a cost effective solution for creating reliable water transportation systems.
MDPE is typically used for transporting water and gas but pipes in this section are only suitable for the transportation of water. Click on the link to view pipes for the transportation of Natural Gas and LPG Gas.
MDPE Chemical Resistance:
Medium Density Polyethylene is renowned for its good resistance to chemical attack. MDPE does not rot, rust, pit, corrode or lose wall thickness through chemical or electrical reaction with the surrounding soil nor does it normally support the growth of or is affected by algae, bacteria or fungi. Medium Density Polyethylene is not resistant to certain oils, organic solvents, halogens and acids depending on the concentration, temperature and pressure.
