Zinc-Coated Ductile Iron Pipe Facts

  • It’s ductile iron pipe sprayed with a zinc coating.
  • The zinc serves as corrosion control.
  • The zinc is consumed in place of the iron.
  • Life expectancy: At least 100 years compared to 50-75 years for traditional ductile iron.
  • Cost: Overall construction cost is the same compared to putting traditional ductile iron pipe in the ground.
  • V-Bio Enhanced Polyethylene Encasement: Think of it as if you’re wrapping the pipe in a bag, providing an extra layer of corrosion protection.
