  • Easy installation via socket, butt and electro-fusion joining
  • Thermal fusion is more reliable than metal welded, soldered, or mechanical joints
  • High pressure capacity (rated for 230 PSIG @ 68° F and 100 PSIG @ 140° F)
  • Lightweight materials reduce transportation costs
  • Wide temperature range: 14° F - 140° F
  • Resistant to all synthetic and mineral-based compressor lubricants including:
    • Polyalpha-olefin (POA)
    • Polyol-ester (POE)
    • Diesters
  • Meets Cal/OSHA requirements for safe transport of compressed air
  • Suitable for above ground and direct-burial installations
  • Designed for minimum expected useful life > 50 years
