Due to their extremely heavy environmental load(plasticizer leaks, the emission of dioxins when incinerated, difficulties in recycling and the use of Pb-based stabilizers), PVC pipes, which have been traditionally used for drainage/sewage pipes, are in the process of being replaced with PP pipes in most developed countries. PP pipes also have greater rigidity than conventional PE pipes, which allows PP-B pipes to have less deformation and cracks, as well as long-term durability.
Hyosung started developing grades of high stiffness, high impact strength and long-term durability HPPB pipes for drainage/sewage since 2001. After a year of field evaluations in overseas and improvements in the overall production processes, the company started exporting these grades in 2003. Through endless technological development and production stability, Hyosung started exporting to Europe and Oceania, where HPPB is already widely applied, as well as sending its products to the Middle East, South America, Africa, China and Southeast and Southwest Asia. The sales of plastic branch pipes and industrial pipes are also increasing as well.
