Plastics Pipe Institute Offering Bounty for Old Exhumed HDPE Pipe

(UC) — The Plastics Pipe Institute (PPI) is offering a $200 bounty for exhumed high-density polyethylene (HDPE) conduit as part of an ongoing research project to demonstrate the longevity of HDPE conduit. 

The purpose of the PPI HDPE Conduit Sample Collection Program is to analyze the used conduit for research about long-term performance and durability.

Specifically, the organization is looking for samples that have been in service for 15 years or longer.

The project will accept any diameter or SDR and a length of 8 to 20 feet is sufficient.

The reward will go to the samples that are selected for testing.

“This research effort will increase the body of knowledge about the product’s long-term durability for power and communication applications,” said Patrick Vibien, P.Eng., Director of Engineering for the Power & Communications Division of PPI.

Contact Mr. Vibien at or 469-499-1048 if you have samples to submit.
