Title: Evaluating the Impact of Disinfectants on PE Pipe

The methodology developed to project PE pipe performance shows that higher-performing current-generation materials are expected to have excellent longevity across the majority of end-use applications and good performance - even in very aggressive end-use environments. According to Steve Shur, executive director of the Alliance for PE Pipe, "The Jana study is informative and gives us a road map of where we are and where we're going. It provides scientific evidence of what we've been saying: High-performance current-generation PE materials have an expected life span of 50 to 100 years. This study provides third-party scientific backup for that claim.
