They offer absolute protection guaranteed resistance against: corrosion, solvent and influence, impact, vibration, strip and over-torque to threaded ends, as established by last edition API 5 CT Specification and major users of OCTG pipes.
The high quality of HDPE combined with special additives, gives thermal stability from - 46°C to +66°C. It is chemically inert, does not cause corrosion, galling and can’t damage the threaded ends.
Dimensional range: 2 3/8“– 36 “(Ø 60, 3 – 914,4 mm).
Production applicable for entire API range and any premium connection requested by
