TEPPFA Position on 100 Years Lifetime of Polyethylene Pressure Buried Pipe Systems for Water and Natural Gas Supply

Joint position paper of TEPPFA and PE100+ Association explains the difference between the design point at 20 degree/50 years and the expected life-time of PE80 and PE100 pressure pipe systems.

Research, extrapolation studies and reports on dig-up pipes in service show minimal degradation and extrapolative tests performed on these test samples confirm an expected service life in excess of 100 years.
