  • Due to INFRAPIPE™ high-quality fabrication team and the welding ability of HDPE material, a 90-degree bend was created to suit the existing pipeline.
  • INFRAPIPE™ technology makes our spiral wound pipes much lighter than GRP alternatives and up to 90% lighter than concrete.


  1. Our pipes have an asset life in excess of 100 years.
  2. Low environmental impact due to the low energy consumption and ease of installation.
  3. HDPE pipes have the advantage of having good elasticity compared to grp pipes, allowing them to bend more easily.
