People who often use PE pipe construction know that PE pipe surface has symmetrical lines with the same color, blue, yellow, red, so what does it mean? In China’s municipal pipe market, water supply pipe and gas pipe are two big application markets. PE chemical Chinese name, polyethylene, PE material due to its high strength, high temperature resistance, corrosion resistance, non-toxic, wear resistance and other characteristics, is widely used in the field of water supply and drainage manufacturing. Because it will not rust, so it is an ideal pipe to replace ordinary iron water supply pipe; According to its use, the surface of the PE tube is distinguished by different color marking lines. The following colors represent several uses respectively:
1.Red mark line: PE mine pipe
Among all engineering plastics, the wear resistance of HDPE occupies the crown of plastics, eye-catching. The higher the molecular weight of the material, the more wear-resistant, even more than many metal materials (such as carbon steel, stainless steel, bronze, etc.). Under the condition of strong corrosion and high wear, its service life is 4-6 times that of steel pipe and 9 times that of ordinary polyethylene. And improve the transmission efficiency by 20%.
Flame retardant, antistatic performance is good, all meet the standard requirements. Downhole service life of more than 20 years, remarkable economic benefits, impact resistance, wear resistance, double resistance effect.
2.Blue line: PE water supply pipe, drain pipe, and fire pipe
PE blowdown pipe: The PE pipe used for blowdown is also called high-density polyethylene pipe, which is HDPE in English. This kind of pipe is often used as municipal engineering pipe, mainly used in: sewage treatment industry. Because of its wear resistance, acid resistance, corrosion resistance, high temperature resistance, high pressure resistance and other characteristics, it has gradually replaced the position of traditional steel pipe, cement pipe and other pipes in the market, especially because the pipe is light in weight and easy to install and move, it is the best choice of new materials.
PE water supply pipe: PE pipe for water supply is the replacement product of traditional steel pipe and PVC drinking water pipe. The water pipe must bear a certain pressure, usually choose high molecular weight, better mechanical properties of PE resin, such as HDPE resin. LDPE resin has low tensile strength, poor pressure resistance, poor rigidity, poor dimensional stability when forming and processing, and difficult connection, it is not suitable as the material of water supply pressure pipe. However, due to its high health index, PE, especially HDPE resin, has become a common material in the production of drinking water pipes. HDPE resin has small melt viscosity, good fluidity and easy processing, so the selection range of its melt index is also wide, usually MI between 0.3-3g/10min.
3.Yellow label line: PE gas pipe
PE pipe for gas is the replacement product of traditional steel pipe and PVC gas.
Gas pipe must bear a certain pressure, usually choose high molecular weight, good mechanical properties of PE resin, such as HDPE resin. HDPE resin has low tensile strength, poor pressure resistance, poor rigidity, poor dimensional stability when forming, and difficult connection, it is not suitable as the material of water supply pressure pipe. However, LDPE, especially LLDPE resin, has become a commonly used material for gas pipe because of its high health index. LDPE, LLDPE resin melt viscosity is small, good fluidity, easy processing, so the selection range of its melt index is wide, usually MI between 0.3-3g/10min.
