When something’s been around long enough, eventually some untruths and myths may develop around it. HDPE pipe is no exception to this, and we’re here to dispel some of these common myths associated with this type of pipe and its mechanical joining.
Let’s clear up some potential misconceptions when it comes to burying the pipe. Modern pipe has evolved enough to the point that it’s designed for different purposes, and that includes being buried. On top of that, innovative pipe solutions like Fusio-Tech UV Black Piping are designed to withstand the effects of ultraviolet rays with their protective coating.
In regards to pipe fusion, there is more to strength and integrity of the joints. The fusion will rely on many factors including the person tasked with performing the fusion job. The elements, the risk of surface contamination, all of these may play a role in how the joint ends up. The fusion process is highly reliable and effective but it does take a considerable amount of time and it may take longer due to circumstances outside of your control such as the weather.
