Poliplex PE100 Pipe

Polyethylene (PE) pipes have been produced in Australia since the mid 1950’s, whilst initially in smaller diameters for industrial and agricultural applications, PE pipe and fittings are now available in diameters up to 2000mm. Usage has grown rapidly over this period and polyethylene resins are evolving from the tradition PE100 from the growing demand for higher performance, longer-life PE pipes that will provide reliable service for 100 years or more.
