PE-RT Typ II Pipes
(Polyethylene of Raised Temperature Resistance)
While Dowlex® 2344 is mainly used for heating
applications because of its inherent exceptional
high flexibility we are now able to provide pipes
made with Dowlex® 2388 which are specifically
designed to meet the stringent requirements for
drinking water networks and those are in particular
durability and best possible hygienic performance.
National and international standardization
bodies have meanwhile already established
the standards for PE-RT type I and type II or are
in the process to do so.
A key benefit of such Octene copolymers is that they do not need chemicals for cross-linking and will in so far not split off decomposition products which appear during the cross-linking procedure.
As we have no cross-linking we are confident that our pipes do not release undesired or prohibeted chemicals into the water. In so far we have also no concerns that our pipes could generate taste an odour problems - a problem that frequently occurs with certain PE-RT materials.
