LDPE Pipes

Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE) supply pipe is used to distribute water around a micro-irrigation system. LDPE pipe is very commonly used in micro-irrigation systems because it is easy to work with and is generally robust enough to withstand the rigours of gardening. It offers some flexibility due to its low-density, but corner connectors (elbows) are a good idea to prevent kinks in the pipe when navigating around the garden. It is possible to use barbed fittings to achieve a secure and leak-free seal, and there are options for compression fittings to use with LDPE pipe as well for an extra secure fit

Application of LDPE Pipes

  • Advantages of Low Density Polyethylene
  • Flexible, with a low tensile strength
  • Impact resistant
  • Chemical resistance
  • High temperature resistance
  • Poor conductor of electricity
  • Cost-effective, economical and widely recyclable
  • Moisture resistant
