Endot PE4710/3408 HDPE Gas Pipe (IPS & CTS)

Endot announces the immediate availability of PE4710* (PE-100) High Density Polyethylene gas pipe produced from the new, high performance Bi-Modal resin, DGDA 2490BK from Dow Chemical.

Endot PE 4710 Gas Pipe is produced in black with three yellow stripes for easy identification as gas service pipe and tubing. Endot PE 3408 Gas Pipe is available in CTS and IPS dimensions produced to ASTM D2513 and is available in sizes from ½” through 8 ”.

The Dow resin DGDA 2490BK used to make Endot PE 4710 Gas Pipe is a Bi-Modal, High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) and is the first ISO PE100 pipe material produced in North America to be listed with a 100- year rating at 20°C (68°F) by The Plastics Pipe Institute, Inc. (PPI). DOW DGDA-2490 BK100 HDPE resin also was given a 50-year rating at 40°C (104°F) and an 11-year rating at 60°C (140°F) by the PPI, making it the first PE resin to be listed at elevated temperatures

This new PE 4710 HDPE resin provides enhanced performance characteristics, such as:

  • Superior Slow Crack Growth (SCG) resistance
  • Excellent resistance to Rapid Crack Propagation (RCP)
  • High temperature/pressure performance
  • Increased toughness (especially at low temperatures)
  • Increased tensile strength and modulus
  • Enhanced fusion to MDPE and other HDPE pipe grades
