Polyethylene pipe was developed in the early 1950's by Phillip's Petroleum Company. Polyethylene is lightweight yet extremely tough and durable. It can be cold bent 20-40 times the pipes diameter. Also, for all practical purposes, is chemically inert, is not brittle, flexes, bends and absorbs impact loads over a wide range of -180 degrees F to 260 degrees F.
Polyenthylene is protected against degradation caused by ultraviolet rays from direct sunlight with finely divided carbon black which is the most effective single additive for enhancing weathering. Life expectancy is conservatively, to be in excess of 50 years.
