DEBUNKING MYTHS ABOUT JOINING HDPE: MYTH #1 – MECHANICAL JOINTS CAN’T BE BURIED OR SUBMERGED

Posted on August 17, 2017

High density polyethylene (HDPE) is light-weight, corrosion-resistant, flexible, long-lasting, and economical, making it an ideal material for buried or submerged pipelines.

One of the most voiced concerns is that mechanical joints may not perform as well as fused joints in buried or submerged applications. In actual fact, Victaulic mechanical joints for HDPE pipe have been specifically designed with buried and submerged services in mind, and are perfect for many underground and underwater environments.

Constructed of durable ductile iron housings and fluoropolymer-coated, corrosion-resistant hardware, Refuse-to-Fuse™ fully restrained couplings are protected from the most challenging underground or underwater environments. If there is an area where the engineer or property owner determines additional protection is desirable, a range of industry-accepted coating and wrap options are available.
