This excellent educational venue will provide both the beginning and the experienced pipe user with a better understanding of handling, fusing, repairing, and transitioning to HDPE pipe. So, what sets HDPE apart from other products? In a phrase, peace of mind. HDPE pipe is strong, durable, flexible and light weight. When fused together, HDPE has a zero-leak rate because the fusion process creates a monolithic HDPE system. HDPE pipe is also a more environmentally sustainable option. It is non-toxic, corrosion and chemical-resistant, has a long design life, and is ideal for trenchless installation methods because of its flexibility.
