Providing High Quality Standard
Plastic pipe predates other geosynthetics and was one of the very first polymer materials manufactured and used to wide extent. The area is very well organized with a large intitute and a world renown research arm. There are plastic pipe associations and institutes in most of the industrialized countries in the world.
In the area of buried plastic pipe it should be recognized that over 95% of natural gas transmission lines are made of plastic pipe (generally solid-wakk HDPE). Additional major areas are in industrial, agricultural, transmission, and drainage applications.
