Pipe Webinar Series – Minimum Performance Requirements for HDPE Pressure Pipes
Webinar 1: Minimum Performance Requirements of HDPE Pressure Pipes
The first webinar in a series of 3 webinars on material developments for HDPE pressure pipes was held on the 15th June 2021
Jeroen Wassenaar discussed the key performance and quality requirements for HDPE pipes and compounds as defined in product standards AS/NZS 4130 and AS/NZS 4131. The presentation covered the principal failure mechanisms of HDPE pipe and how these are addressed by the material and best practices in pipe extrusion. The floor was then opened to Q&A where attendees had the opportunity to gain further insight from Predrag Micic through questions on HDPE pipe performance, testing, processing and future developments.
