HDPE pipes can also be used for agricultural irrigation purposes. HDPE pipes are also known to be used in the oil and gas industry for the supply of liquid petroleum products and gases.
The HDPE pipes we stock are manufactured by HDPE pipes producers in Nigeria. We also stock HDPE pipes and HDPE fittings imported from Asia and Europe.
Features of HDPE Pipes
The following are the features of our HDPE pipes:
- HDPE pipes are made by the polymerization of ethylene.
- Stabilizers, fillers, plasticizers, softeners, lubricants, colorants, flame retardants, blowing agents, crosslinking agents and ultraviolet degradable additives are some of the additives used for the production of HDPE pipes.
- The HDPE pipes come in various diameters, length and sizes.
- Most HDPE pipes are black in colour.
- HDPE pipes are UV resistant because of the addition of 3%-5% carbon black.

- HDPE pipes can work under a wide temperature range.
- HDPE pipes do not leach chemicals into the soil or the liquid flowing through it.
- Easy transportation due to low-weight
- HDPE pipes are UV resistant.
- HDPE pipes cannot corrode even when chemicals are passed through them.
- HDPE pipes have low maintenance cost as compared to other types of pipes
- The installation cost of HDPE pipes is low.
- The maintenance cost of HDPE pipes is also low.
- HDPE pipes are resistant to the effects of the sun.
- HDPE pipes can be easily joined together.
Disadvantages of HDPE Pipes
The disadvantages of HDPE pipes are:
- They are highly flammable.
- They are costlier than flexible hoses.
