Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC), the global leading diversified petrochemicals company, has completed its Vestolen A pipe portfolio by adding a new orange colored High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) grade which can be used for gas distribution.

The idea behind the new grade, SABIC Vestolen A 6060R, is to meet the industry’s need for enhanced product safety and reliability.

As well as being long-lasting and usable across both mono and multi later pipes, its resistance to slow crack growth and rapid crack propogation builds upon SABIC’s existing range which is renowned for reliability, weight efficiency and easy installation.

Louis Loos, Segment Leader Pipes at SABIC commented: “SABIC will continue to invest in the pipe industry, to be able to anticipate effectively on its future developments and requirements. Our global platform of research and development centers makes us a strong innovation partner and we’re ready to leverage this capability further in collaboration with customers”.

As die deposits are significantly reduced during the extrusion process of the new grade, SABIC® Vestolen A 6060R also offers considerable benefits to converters as the production process doesn’t need to be interrupted as frequently as is needed with standard material, and higher levels of throughput can be achieved as a result. 

“When developing new materials we pay particular attention to the conversion process. SABIC® Vestolen A 6060R is an example how we support converters to optimize their production process,” added SABIC’s Technical Marketing Engineer HDPE Europe, Ralph Handstanger.
