AtlanFlow HDPE Pipe

What are the advantages of HDPE Pipe compared to RCP Pipe?

HDPE pipe is characterised by its lightweight yet structurally strong formula and offers a strong alternative to RCP pipe for stormwater applications. High density polyethylene is a polymer that is inherently resistant to corrosion, abrasion and other environmental factors.

The resilience, durability and ease of installation of HDPE make it a great alternative to other pipe products. With pre-fitted gaskets, and inline socket and spigot joints, HDPE pipe ensures quick installation times with lower risks & OHS issues on-site.

Compared to RCP there are many benefits, which include –

  • Longer lay lengths
  • Ease of handling
  • Lightweight material: between 80% & 95% lighter than concrete
  • Not prone to cracking
  • No socket excavation required for installation
  • Lower freight & logistics costs
  • Fewer joints and connection points
  • Long design life: 100-year lifecycle
  • Chemical resistance composition

HDPE is often viewed as a sustainable design choice with lower energy requirements required for production than alternative pipe systems. A cost-effective alternative to conventional RCP installations, our team can help assess the suitability of HDPE pipe for your stormwater project with our range of AtlanFlow SN8 HDPE Pipe and AtlanFlow ADS Pipe.
