Here we OrientFlex offer you 4 tips to distinguish ultra high molecular weight PE pipe.
The density of authentic ultra high molecular weight PE is between 0.93-0.95. Thus you can weight the pipe to check if it’s the authentic one. Besides, we can put the pipe into the water. We know that the density of water is 1, thus if the pipe flow on the water surface, it’s the authentic one. But if it sink in the bottom, it will be the fake one.
The flange end of authentic ultra high molecular weight PE pipe is mellow, even and smooth. Whereas there will be crack on the flange end of unauthentic pipe. What’s more, when flange after heating, there will be dregs falling.

The authentic PE pipe is smooth, even in density and bright in color. But the unauthentic one is dark in color with an uneven density.
These are the 4 tips to distinguish authentic ultra high molecular PE pipe. Learning these, you will become an expert to distinguish pipes.
