Types of jackets for pipes

Pipe jackets are crucial for protecting your piping system from heat loss, condensation, and even noise. Selecting the right lagging depends on your specific application and needs. The Pipe Company offers a diverse range of solutions to ensure optimal performance and efficiency. Let's delve into the different types of jackets available: 


1. PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) 


PVC is characterized by being lightweight, versatile, and economical, making it a popular choice for a wide range of applications. It is easy to install and is commonly used in potable water supply systems, drainage, irrigation, electrical conduits, and sewer systems. Its wide availability, flexibility, and resistance to a broad range of chemicals make it an attractive option for many projects. 


2. HDPE (High-Density Polyethylene) 


HDPE is ideal for underground installations where flexibility and corrosion resistance are required. Its UV resistance also makes it suitable for outdoor applications. HDPE is known for being durable, corrosion-resistant, leak-proof, and environmentally friendly.

3. Corrugated HDPE 


While regular HDPE shines for its underground resilience, Corrugated HDPE takes it a step further with its wavy design. Think of it like a flexible armor! This unique structure grants it superior flexibility and crush resistance, making it the ideal choice for pipes that face constant movement or vibration. Whether it's navigating uneven terrain or enduring the rumble of passing vehicles, Corrugated HDPE bends with the punches, protecting your piping system with ease.  



4. Bi-Layer HDPE 


This innovative jacket boasts a dual-layer construction: a tough black inner core shields against harmful UV rays, while the bright blue or orange outer layer grabs attention with its high visibility. This combination is perfect for above-ground applications like irrigation lines, where sun protection and easy identification are crucial.
