HDPE pipes are flexible and can be bent to a minimum bending radius of 30 times the pipes outside diameter. This flexibility is critical in applications such as submarine pipe lines, mine subsidence and earthquake prone areas. This inherent resiliency and flexibility al
lows the pipe to absorb surge pressures, vibration and stresses caused by soil movement.
Flexibility is one of the most important aspects of an HDPE pipe. Key areas where flexibility is required:
