PE-100RC pipe with PP enriched coatin

Polyethylene pipes with a polypropylene coating are pressure pipes for water supply, manufactured according to the applicable DIN and EN standards. The new material PE-100 RC confers the pipe a high quality level, ensuring it a minimum 100 years service life. The additional protective coating added to the nominal diameter is made of modified polyolefins, granting additional mechanical stiffness and protection. The PE-100 RC (RC = Resistance to cracks) generation stands for high-performance material, with increased resistance to concentrated loads and cracking. PE-100 RC is indicated by the German Institute for Standardization DIN by the specification PAS 1075:2009 (”PAS” = Public Available Specification), considered to be a complement to the existing technical standards and regulations. PAS 1075:2009-04 offers a definition of the high quality level of the pipe, for which it estimates (for the first time standardized) a service life of minimum 100 years.

Benefits offered by the PE-100RC polyethylene pipe with PP enriched coating

Considerably increased wear resistance

The PE-100 RC material has an increased resistance to concentrated loads and cracking, coming to the aid of builders and involving lower installation costs. The new pipe has an increased resistance to: wear, concentrated loads, pressure, crack propagation, corrosion, abrasion, impact.

Increased flexibilit

The PE-100RC pipes show an improvement in terms of flexibility, which is maintained in time. Most of the pipeline routes, regardless of application, require direction changes, branching etc. In all situations, excepting polyethylene pipes, any deviation from collinearity, no matter how small, requires fittings, welded or mechanical joining and, implicitly, additional time and costs.

For the PE-100 RC pipes with a PP coating, due to the flexibility features of the material they are made of, direction changes can be performed without any additional costs and without prejudice to the operating performance of the pipe.

Environmentally friendly

The PE-100RC pipes with a PP coating protect the environment, providing execution and operation safety. As they can be easily installed by relining or bursting, the impact on the environment is minimal. Also, the PE-100RC pipes with a PP coating give off up to five times less carbon monoxide and dioxide than steel pipes.

Notaste, odour or colourcontaminationto the carried water

The PP protection system not only provides protection from UV radiation, but also from contamination during the entire handling, transportation and installation process. Moreover, the material used in making the pipes has zero interaction with the environment and the carried water. Therefore, there is no possibility that they lend any taste, odour or colour to the water. The carried drinking water stays clean and healthy.

Easy to install

The PE-100RC pipes with a PP coating can be installed with an open trench, without a sand bed and/or trenchless, using modern unconventional methods. Example of alternative installation techniques: by guided horizontal drilling, relining or bursting (rehabilitation of the old systems by bursting or covering).

A long service life

Due to the increased resistance to cracking and crack propagation, thermal ageing, corrosion and aggressive soils, abrasion and impact, the PE-100RC pipes with a PP coating have a service life of up to 100 years.

Helps reduce execution time and costs

Its light weight, the joining process made easier by head welding and its compatibility with the fittings and welding equipment existing on the market usually shorten the execution time by 35-40% as compared to other types of pipes. Even more important, the transport and labour costs are also about 10-15% less.

Pipe installation

  • with open trench with our without a sand bed;
  • trenchless, by modern unconventional methods;

        Example of alternative installation techniques:

     –  by guided horizontal drilling – a trenchless method used for installing buried pipelines. It implies the use of directional drilling, performed with special equipment. The soil is turned and washed in different stages. A drill tunnel is created by means of a pilot. During the following stages, the final pipe is anchored and inserted by means of a pulling device. We can drill under buildings, rivers, roads, hills, rocks etc..

     –  relining – the pipe is pulled through the manhole and connected. Individual pipes are connected by head welding and/or electrofusion.

    – bursting – a method for breaking the pipes, used to repair the damaged pipes, by maintaining or increasing the hydraulic section. The material broken and compacted in the ground forms an annulus, where the replacement pipe attached to the back of the bursting head is inserted. The old pipe is destroyed by the bursting head and the new pipe, and the remains are pressed into the surrounding ground.

   – pulling . The method consists of pulling a small diameter polyethylene pipe through the host pipe (steel, cast iron, concrete).
