Polyethylene pipesare obtained from the raw material obtained after the polymerization process of ethylene gas obtained from petroleum. The number Pe 100 indicates the environmental stress (σ) value of the product, which is 10.0MPa. This value started at 32 and work continues on Pe 125. Since an increase in this value indicates an increase in its strength, it means a thinning of the wall thickness for the same pressure class. This means saving raw materials and increasing the inner diameter value of the Pe 100 pipe. Improvements in these values increase market share as they offer a cost advantage over alternative products.
Polyethylene is a recyclable product since it belongs to the thermoplastic product group. From an environmental perspective, when collected again, it can be used in second-class products.
