Product Description
SABIC® Vestolen A 6060R 10000 (black) is a grade which has a high density and a bimodal distribution of the molecular mass. Due to an improved profile of properties this material offers additional security when used for gas and drinking water piping. The material is further characterised by a significantly higher resistance to long-term loading and has a very high resistance to rapid crack propagation. Owing to a special stabilisation package, good organoleptic properties are ensured with grade 6060R 10000. This material meets (inter)national standards for use in gas, drinking water and waste water piping. MRS class ISO 12162 MPa = 10.0 (PE 100).

The product mentioned herein is in particular not tested and therefore not validated for use in pharmaceutical/ medical applications.
