ACU-THERM – Above Ground Pipelines Acu-Therm PE100 pipe is manufactured with a highly reflective white exterior. This coating is extruded at the same time as the main pipe (co-extruded), forming an integral part of the pipe. This means more than 95% of the pipe is made of standard black PE material, with a thin white coating on the outside to reflect sunlight, reducing the amount of absorbed heat. Co-extruded pipe technology has been around for years but has typically been more expensive than standard black poly pipe. Acu-Tech has invested in new state-of-the-art extrusion machinery that can produce co-extruded PE pipe very efficiently. This means that the cost of co-ex HDPE pipe is not much more than standard black HDPE … Continue reading Acu-Therm
