      Ductile Iron Pipe

      Ductile Iron Pipe is an extremely durable, long-living pipe made from ductile cast iron. Protective interior linings and exterior coatings make these pipes the only choice for transmission and distribution applications such as potable water and sewer lines.

      The American Water Works Association reported Ductile Iron Pipes “in benign soil or installed in more aggressive soils” which use evolved laying practices have an estimated life of up to 110 years. This is based on a national study analyzing the nationwide use of water pipes in the United States. 

      Ductile Iron vs Cast Iron

      The word Ductile is an adjective defined as “able to be formed without losing toughness.” Ductile Cast Iron is the graphite-rich cousin of cast iron developed in the mid-1900s which quickly superseded cast iron for distribution applications. Traditional cast iron is inherently weak and brittle under tension. Nodular graphite inclusions added to the microstructure of the iron transform this product into an impact and fatigue resistance king of the iron world.
