New fields of application

Lecture by Dr. Thorsten Späth at the Plastic Pipes Conference

“Custom-made plastic pipes and fittings made from Polyethylene offer new fields of application.” That’s the topic of the lecture of Dr.-Ing. Thorsten Späth, Head of engineering and product development at egeplast, presented at the Plastic Pipes Conference in Barcelona at the 25th September 2012


The egeplast HexelOne® pipe is a self-reinforced pipe, a monocomposite made from Polyethylene only. New applications are those in the raised pressure range, i.e. operating pressures above those served by PE pipes up to now. These are, for example, high pressure applications in gas and water supply or in industrial applications such as onshore pipelines. The 16. International Plastic Pipes Conference will take place from 24.09 – 26.09.2012 in Barcelona
