BlackMAX

BlackMAX® is a cost-effective alternative to rigid stormwater drainage pipes providing exceptional performance and durability. Manufactured from polypropylene, BlackMAX® pipes are resistant to corrosive and aggressive ground conditions, such as acid sulphate soils or saline ground waters; resulting in increased longevity of the pipeline.

Advantages

Throughout Australia BlackMAX® has been chosen for its unique characteristics and properties including:

Features Benefits
Durability The tough, ductile nature of polypropylene enable pipes to resist impact sustained in course of transportation and site handling, without damage
Abrasion and corrosion resistant Polypropylene is notably resistant to abrasion and has excellence resistance to corrosive drainage. The material is resistant to aggressive ground conditions, such as acid sulphate soils or saline ground waters
Effective rubber ring joint Designed for ease of assembly and jointing. Pipes can be cut to length on site and rejoined
Low embodied energy Environmental benefits
Inground performance High tolerance to deformation and can accommodate soil movement without structural damage
Smooth bore for hydraulic performance Combined with their high resistance to scale and sediment build up provides excellent hydraulic performance. This can result in reduced grades to accomplish a given flow
Lightweight for ease of installation Can be easily manoeuvred in confined areas by hand or with light lifting equipment. Site handling and efficiency is therefore improved, which can result in significant savings on installation
