Ductile Iron, also known as Spheroidal Graphite Iron or Nodular Cast Iron, offers better ductility and retains the inherent corrosion resistance of cast iron. Pipes made from Ductile Iron are therefore the most preferred pipes for water supply and sewage applications across the world.
Srikalahasthi Pipes Limited is a leading manufacturer of superior quality DI Pipes with higher pressure bearing ability, impact resistance and capacity to sustain external static/ dynamic loading.
Ductile iron offers higher Tensile Strength than Mild Steel and retains the inherent corrosion resistance of Cast Iron due to its spheroidal graphite micro-structure. Pipes made from Ductile Iron provide substantial benefits in terms of pressure bearing ability, impact resistance and capacity to sustain external static/ dynamic loading.
Ductile Iron Pipes have flexible push-on joints which do not leak at high or low pressure, even when deflected. Thus, these pipes are flexible, easy and quick to join.
Ductile iron pipes with external metallic zinc/epoxy coating with finishing layer of Bituminous Coating and internal cement mortar lining using large centrifugal force provides excellent anti-corrosive properties.
Ductile iron Pipes have very long reliable service life of 70-90 years.
Ductile Iron Socket and Spigot Pipe with Push-On Joint conforming to IS 8329:2000 with subsequent amendments for Water, Sewerage and Irrigation.
