Rural Plus® PE Pipe – Green Stripe

Features & Benefits

  • Quality

    Vinidex uses the highest quality raw materials and most up-to-date manufacturing technologies and is now regarded as one of the most technically advanced manufacturers in the field.

  • Ease of installation

    Rural Plus® polyethylene pipes are easy to install with their light weight and long lengths. Buried pipes can be installed in a trench or using “ploughing in” techniques.

  • Flexibility

    The inherent flexibility of polyethylene allows Rural Plus® polyethylene pipe to be laid to follow natural earth contours or bend around obstacles. The pipe will also withstand normal earth movement.

  • High impact strength

    The high impact strength of Rural Plus® polyethylene pipes ensures resistance to the rigors of pipe laying conditions.

  • High Flow Capacity

    Rural Plus® polyethylene pipes maintain a smooth internal bore over the working lifetime of the pipeline. The surface energy characteristics of polyethylene inhibit the build-up of deposits on the internal pipe surfaces, thereby retaining the maximum bore dimensions and flow capacities.

  • Weathering Resistance

    Rural Plus® polyethylene pipes are stabilised against ultra violet (UV) light degradation by the inclusion of carbon black in the material and are suitable for above ground installations where the pipes are exposed to direct sunlight.
