ACU-BLACK POLY PIPE – PE100 Pipe Systems

The Acu-Black Poly Pipe – PE100 Pipe System boasts the most extensive range of pipe and fittings manufactured from high-density PE100 material. Acu-Black pipe and fittings find application across a diverse spectrum of fluid and gas uses, spanning plumbing, mining, civil engineering, energy, and mechanical services sectors. With a foundation rooted in nearly 50 years of industry research and innovation, PE pipes have earned a reputation for exceptional performance and longevity in demanding environments.

Acu-Black PE100 material is engineered with a 50-year Minimum Required Strength (MRS) of 10 MPa. However, in practice, its actual strength surpasses the design specifications, with PE100 pipelines expected to endure up to 100 years under normal operating conditions.

The designation “Acu-Black” derives from the HDPE pipe’s black exterior, which incorporates carbon black at a concentration of 2.25 ± 0.25% by mass, serving as an ultraviolet radiation absorber. This additive confers Acu-Black PE100 with remarkable UV resistance, ideal for exposed pipelines.

Acu-Black HDPE Pipe facilitates various joining methods, including electrofusion fittings, butt welding equipment, or compression fittings. Heat-fused jointing systems establish a monolithic structure stronger than the pipe itself, ensuring complete leak-free performance. This eliminates the risk of rubber seal failure over time, addresses root intrusion concerns, and upholds pipeline integrity, particularly in unstable ground conditions.

The Range of available pipe diameters and pressure ratings includes:

  • Poly pipe sizes from 20 mm up to 800 mm diameter.
  • Pressure ratings from PN6.3 to PN25 (SDR26 to SDR7.4)
  • Standard PE pipe straight lengths are 6 and 12 metres. Lengths of up to 22 meters are available to order.
  • Standard PE pipe coil lengths are 50, 100, 150 and 200 metres.
  • Acu-Black poly pipe is manufactured in accordance with AS/NZS 4130 “Polyethylene – PE – pipes for pressure applications” from compounds complying with AS/NZS 4131 “Polyethylene (PE) compounds for pressure pipes and fittings”

Note: The nominal diameter of PE100 pipe is its external diameter, not its internal bore diameter.

The range and types of fittings inclued:
  • Electrofusion couplers in diameters 20 mm to 800 mm.
  • Full range of electrofusion fittings including elbows, tees and tapping bands in diameters 20 mm to 250 mm.
  • Long spigot moulded elbows, tees, reducers, threaded adaptors and flanges for electrofusion and butt fusion in diameters 20 mm to 630 mm.
  • Short spigot moulded elbows, tees, reducers and flanges for butt fusion in diameters 63 mm to 630 mm.
  • Fabricated tees, reducing tees, long radius (sweep) bends and segmented bends.
  • Custom fabricated fittings and manifolds.
  • A range of transition fittings is available for connection to other plastic or metallic pipe.
  • Manufactured in accordance with AS/NZS 4129 “Fittings for polyethylene (PE) pipes for pressure applications”
