Report on the market on Ribbed Culvert Pipe in NZ Conditions

Euroflo in high country

Traditionally the material used for culvert pipe from sizes 110mm – 400mm has been PVC (polyvinyl chloride). In larger sizes concrete or metal pipes or rotationally moulded HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) have been used. As pipe making technology improved, extruded ribbed PE (polyethylene) became widespread in Europe for stormwater and sewer. It has been manufactured in NZ in smaller sizes up to 500mm in the last 15 years, but in recent years NZ has taken on the concept of using larger diameter extruded ribbed PE culvert pipe. There are two companies in NZ that can make very large sizes to order (normally used for civil projects); they are Frank PKS and Solo Plastics.
