Novel Flame Retardant HDPE Corrugated Pipes as a Riser Protector in Agriculture
In this article flame retardant HDPE corrugated pipes as a riser protector in agriculture were produced by adding 59% magnesium di-hydroxide additive to HDPE raw materials by using a single extruder. The compound was used for pipe production and the resulted pipe was compared with pristine pipe under OIT, DSC, MFI, Density and ash content experiments. The mechanical properties of the pipes were measured by ring stiffness, flexibility, falling weigh tests. Results indicated that the produced pipes are flame resistant and showed acceptable mechanical properties. All tests were done in reference to related standards.
