Unread postAuthor: wannabie » Sat Sep 01, 2007 3:05 am

Hi everybody!

I was wondering if anyone knew the pressure ratings on polly pipe?

For those of you who dont know what that is http://203.147.170.141/product_files/prd_109.jpg

http://www.tps.us/extras/OD.html has the dimensions

Heres a nifty little working/burst pressure calculator.

Website with properties of material. The material strength i found was around 3200psi.
I'm sure theres a chart concerning this somewhere, but this stuff i found faster.
enjoy, I'm going to bed.[/url]

Negative; 3200 psi is at the low end of the tensile strength range, even for plastics.
Many (non-foam) rubbers are lower, though.
