Highlights:

Polyethylene systems are available in different colours and are offered in the polymers PE32, LDPE (Low Density Polyethylene), PE80, MDPE (Medium Density Polyethylene), and PE100, HDPE (High Density Polyethylene).

PE32 - This is the term used to denote LDPE polyethylene material which has been widely used for the water industry and in agriculture for many years. PE32 is generally used for lower pressure applications and is supplied in a black colour.

PE80 - This is the term used to denote MDPE polyethylene material which has been widely used for gas and water industry for many years. PE80 is generally used for lower pressure applications and is supplied in a light blue or black colour.

PE100 - This is the term used to denote HDPE polyethylene. PE100 is a higher density material than PE80 and demonstrates exceptional resistance to rapid crack propagation and is suitable for higher pressure applications. PE100 is supplied in a dark blue and black colour.
