Polyamide (Nylon) gas pipe system is a revolutionary plastic pipe system developed for the gas industry, used for both direct burial and rehabilitation of existing cast iron and steel gas mains.
The excellent chemical resistance properties of Polyamide 11 (PA11) and Polyamide 12 (PA12), permits the conveyance of natural, manufactured or LP gases containing small amounts of aromatic and other condensable hydrocarbon impurities.
High tensile strength of polyamides enables the production of thin walled pipes with comparable strength, compared with much heavier walled polyethylene pipes.
Polyamide can withstand considerable stresses at peak temperatures in the region of 80°C (dry heat).
Polyamide pipes have excellent chemical resistance to heavy hydrocarbons at ambient temperatures.
