Medium Density Polyethylene (MDPE) is a heavy-duty material that also possesses excellent UV, chemical, corrosion, build-up and crack resistance. Because of these properties, MDPE creates a sturdy, long lasting pipe that is ideal for above and below ground use, gas reticulation, compressed air, small diameter pipe coils, travelling irrigator systems, and water and waste reticulation applications. In fact, most applications for moving water at high or low pressures.
General factors for consideration when designing and choosing PVC piping include:
- Pressure and flow – taking into account surges and their frequency;
- Loads – including earth loads, traffic loads, bending stresses, installation loads, expansion and contraction stresses etc;
- Service life required; and
Vinidex has been operating in Australia since the 1960s and has built its business based on quality polyethylene and PVC piping products. The Pump House can supply Vinidex low density piping to suit a wide range of rural, commercial, industrial and domestic applications.
Vinidex black Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) pipes are constructed to meet Australian standards and feature antioxidants, stabilisers, pigments and carbon black for protection against ultra violet rays and tough Australian conditions.
