MDPE, or medium density polyethylene, is ideal for water pipework as it is light, durable, and resistant to corrosion and stress cracking.
Blue MDPE is approved for use below ground for potable mains water conveyance.
Black MDPE is virtually the same, but has additional UV protection for use above ground in general water applications.
As this is a pipework system specifically designed to carry water for human consumption, it has been manufactured to ensure that it will not rot, rust, corrode or lose wall thickness through reactions with the ground or other environmental factors. You can be assured that quality of pipe that we offer is high and all necessary standards have been met.
MDPE was previously known as alkathene, although that name is still used in the industry today, or is often shortened to just PE.
