LD PLUS® – Low Density Irrigation Pipe Products

Features & Benefits

  • High-impact strength

    A high-impact strength compared with other materials ensures greater resistance to the rigors of any pipe laying condition.

  • Damage resistance

    Low notch sensitivity provides a high level of resistance to the effects of external damage.

  • Abrasion resistance

    Excellent abrasion resistance ensuring long life.

  • Chemical resistance

    Outstanding resistance to a wide range of chemicals.

  • Flexibility

    LD PLUS® pipes are flexible and can be bent at a radius of 14 times diameter.

  • Ease of installation

    Vinidex LD PLUS® pipes are widely used in applications such as agricultural, micro-irrigation and dripper tube systems due to rapid installation and simple and less frequent jointing.

  • Weathering resistance

    Vinidex LD PLUS® pipes are stabilised against ultraviolet (UV) light degradation by the inclusion of carbon black in the raw material.

  • Long life

    Vinidex LD PLUS® pipes have a proven high reliability record across a wide range of industries and applications, now in excess of 50 years.
