What is polyethylene?

Polyethylene is a type of thermoplastic polymer which is obtained from the polymerisation of ethilene. It is used widely in different industries thanks to its favourable physical and chemical properties. Polyethylene pipes, made using this material, have become a popular choice for a wide range of uses, thanks to their strength, durability and flexibility.

Uses of polyethylene pipes

Polyethylene pipes are found in a wide range of products in different sectors because of their numerous advantages. Some of the most common ones include:

Application in the construction industry

Polyethylene pipes are used in the construction industry for sewerage systems, storm drainage, drinking water systems, gas distribution networks and heating and refrigeration systems. Their strength, durability and ability to withstand chemical products and corrosion make them a reliable choice for these uses.

Use in water supply systems1

Polyethylene pipes are widely used in water supply systems, both in urban and rural areas. Due to their resistance to corrosion and capacity to withstand high pressure, polyethylene pipes guarantee a safe and high quality water supply for homes, businesses and communities.

Use in irrigation systems

In agriculture, polyethylene pipes are used in drip irrigation and sprinkler irrigation systems. Their flexibility enables them to be installed easily and they adapt to different soils and crops. Moreover, polyethylene pipes have a low internal friction, which reduces the loss of pressure and guarantees an efficient distribution of water.

Use in gas installations1

Polyethylene pipes are also used in natural gas distribution systems. Their resistance to corrosion and ability to withstand extreme conditions of temperature and pressure make them a safe and durable choice for transporting gas.

Use in drainage systems1

In drainage systems, polyethylene pipes offer an efficient and durable solution. Their resistance to abrasions and capacity to withstand aggressive chemical products make them ideal for transporting wastewater and rainwater.

Types of polyethylene pipes at Gestiriego

Carsystem PE100 AND PE40 polyethylene pipes.

Differences between PE100 AND PE40:


Resistence to pressure

The PE100 has a greater resistance to pressure compared to the PE40. This means that PE100 pipes can withstand higher levels of internal pressure without becoming deformed or cracked, which makes them suitable for applications requiring a higher strength, such as pipes for high pressure water or irrigation systems.


Impact resistance
The PE100 has a greater resistance to impact compared to the PE40. This property enables the PE100 pipes to absorb knocks or external loads better, making them more suitable for use in applications where an increased exposure to knocks or vibrations is expected, such as pipes buried under rocky ground or areas prone to ground movement.


The PE40 is more flexible than the PE100. This means that the PE40 pipes are easier to bend and handle compared to PE100 pipes. This property makes them more suitable for applications which require greater flexibility, such as installation in ground with bends or where connecting to equipment that requires movement or to be transported.


Wall diameter and thickness
The PE100 and PE40 pipes can also differ in terms of their diameter and wall thickness. This is due to the specifications and rules established for each of them. Depending on the needs of the project and the specific requirements of the application, different diameters and wall thicknesses can be used for each type of pipe.
