Agru launches new Sureline range

It comes with an additional protective layer made from PP and is suitable for all modern installation techniques

February 2014

Agru Kunststofftechnik GmbH, an Austrian manufacturer of high-quality pipes, fittings, membranes and semi-finished products made of high-density polyethylene (HDPE), polypropylene (PP), polyvinylidene difluoride (PVDF) and ethylene chlorotrifluoroethylene (ECTFE), has launched its new Sureline pipe range in the Middle East.

Announcing the launch, the company highlighted that the range comes with an additional protective layer made from PP.

“Trenchless installation techniques are becoming increasingly important,” Werner Steindl, sales manager at Agru Austria, commented. “In particular, burstlining and horizontal directional drilling are very demanding for the outside surface of pipes since scratches and point loads cannot be avoided. In order to ensure the safe and reliable operation of HDPE pipes installed with these no-dig methods it is essential to use the highest available quality. To meet these stringent requirements Agru Kunststofftechnik is now offering Sureline pipes with an additional external protective layer made from PP.”

The core pipe made from PE 100-RC fulfills all requirements of international standards, for example EN 12201. The outstanding resistance to slow crack growth together with the scratch resistant protective layer withstands the toughest installation conditions.

Sureline with the protective layer is suitable for all modern installation techniques such as burstlining, relining and horizontal directional drilling. These pipes can be joined by means of heating element butt fusion as well as electro socket fusion.

Agru Kunststofftechnik has 800 employees worldwide and ranks among the most important international manufacturers of innovative plastic products for liners, pipes, piping system components, concrete protection liners and semi-finished products.

“The uniquely superior quality of our products, based on decades of experience in plastic processing and our highly competent technical advice and service, is attested to by our satisfied customers and our ISO-9001 certification,” Steindl added.
