- The material PE 80
- The material PE-EL

 

The material PE 100

- Service temperature range from -40 °C to +80 °C
- Low specific weight
- Physiologically safe
- Impact resistant
- Light and weather resistant
- No water absorption or swelling
- Excellent chemical resistance
- High abrasion resistance
- Excellent electrical insulation properties
- Permanently tight and longitudinally strong connection through welding

Service life and operational reliability are of crucial importance for the efficiency of piping systems. Deploying next-generation polyethylenes within the PE 100 class, SIMONA has developed state-of-the-art pipe materials with improved creep strength and thus increased stress crack resistance.

PE 100 represents a high-density PE (PE-HD) with an equivalent strain increment determined by creep test, sv20 °C, 50a, amounting to at least 10 N/mm2. In this test the creep of the material is determined under the assumption of the following conditions: 50 years service life, 20 °C thermal exposure and water as the test medium.

Alongside improved creep strength, PE 100 also displays greater mechanical strength. Its higher abrasion resistance ensures a longer service life for the piping system, especially if the medium to be conveyed contains solids.

The advantages of SIMONA PE 100 Pipes
- Increased internal pressure rating
- High resistance to tension cracks
- High resistance to slow crack propagation
- Improved notch resistance
- Outstanding abrasion resistance
- Long service life and excellent reliability

Key benefits
Drawing on our expertise in production and process technology, our range of premium-quality SIMONA PE 100 boast an exceptionally long service life and high operational reliability - essential prerequisites for cost-effective applications.

SIMONA PE 100 pipes feature superior creep strength, resistance to crack propagation and excellent abrasion resistance. As a result, you can use pipes with an unchanged wall thickness at a higher service pressure or a reduced wall thickness with unchanged service pressure.

The material PE 80

- Service temperature range from -40 °C to +80 °C
- Low specific weight
- Physiologically safe
- Impact resistant
- Light and weather resistant
- No water absorption or swelling
- Excellent chemical resistance
- High abrasion resistance
- Excellent electrical insulation properties
- Permanently tight and longitudinally strong connection through welding

Owing to their high performance and reliability, pipes and piping systems made of polyethylene have proved ideal for applications in which gas, water or waste water have to be conveyed safely and efficiently. The high-density grades of polyethylene (PE-HD) used in the production of pipes are divided into various performance classes. PE 80 constitutes a PE-HD with an equivalent strain increment determined by creep test, sv20 °C, 50a, of at least 8 N/mm2.
Alongside the traditional black pressure pipes made of PE 80, we offer a comprehensive range of other PE 80 pipes and fittings tailored to specific requirements. SIMONA® PE CoEx pipes for sewer systems have a co-extruded, light-coloured interior layer to ensure optimum, non-reflecting illumination of the pipes for camera inspection. SIMONA® SPC pipes have a protective jacket made of modified polypropylene to protect the pipes from damage during pipe bursting, relining or trenchless laying.

The advantages of SIMONA® PE 80 Pipes
- Highly cost-effective in terms of transport, construction and service life
- Minimal cost of service and maintenance
- Resistant to internal and external corrosion, particularly with regard to substances occurring in the ground and in domestic waste
- No additional anti-corrosion measures required
- Permanently tight, strong connection through welding
- Simple handling due to light weight
- Insusceptible to soil settlement
- Favourable hydraulic conditions due to minimal wall roughness
- Frost-resistant

The material PE-EL

- Service temperature range from -20 °C to +80 °C
- Electrically conductive
- Not suitable for contact with foodstuffs
- Impact resistant
- Low specific weight
- Light and weather resistance
- Excellent chemical resistance
- High abrasion resistance
- No water absorption or swelling
- Permanently tight and longitudinally strong connection through welding

Electrically conductive PE-EL prevents static developing in pipes, for example in pipelines conveying combustible liquids, solvents or vapours. To enable PE-EL to discharge the static, conductive particles are added to the material. Special-purpose carbons are used, ensuring that surface resistivity and volume resistivity are kept as low as possible.

The advantages of SIMONA® PE-EL Pipes
- Electrically conductive
- High abrasion resistance when conveying solids
- Resistant to internal and external corrosion, particularly with regard to substances occurring in the ground and in domestic waste
- Permanently watertight, strong connection through welding

The SiMONA® PE-EL range of products
- PE-EL Pressure pipes
- PE-EL Fittings

Fields of application
- Waste water disposal
- Drinking water supply
- Sewer repairs
- Industrial pipeline construction
- Landfill engineering
