Use of Ductile Iron Pipe
Ductile iron is a type of metal — introduced into the marketplace in 1955 — that retains all of the qualities of cast iron, such as machinability and corrosion resistance, and has newer qualities such as additional strength, lighter weight and durability. Ductile iron pipe is growing in popularity above other pipe materials such as PVC, polyethylene, steel and concrete, and is used today for thousands of water and wastewater systems.
