Innovation Central

Butt fusion is a common joining method used in the world of High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) pipes The pipe ends are cleaned, faced off, heated and then pushed together according to a standard. The result is a leak-free joint that is as strong or stronger than the pipe wall. Thus, HDPE pipe solves for the typical failure mechanisms of legacy materials. It does not leak, it does not pit or corrode, it does not separate when the ground moves and it lasts > 100 years.
