Pipes and hosesMaterials

Every new product development is defined by a specific set of requirements, which is why we think about the choice of the right polymer for the application from the start. We assign the final product and its application to the variety of plastics and their specific properties.

Polyolefins or other non-reinforced, rigid plastics such as ABS, PC, rigid PVC or PA 6/­66 are used for a wide variety of applications due to their good chemical, electrical or thermal resistance.
Technical polymers with glass fibre reinforcement can be used as a substitute for metal pipes for certain applications as they offer many advantages such as good recyclability, low weight and durability.

Selection criteria for materials:

  • Mechanical and chemical properties
  • Application area (temperature, time and duration of application)
  • Regulatory requirements (food contact, flame retardant, halogen-free flame retardant, etc.)
  • Haptics
  • Optics
  • Environmental factors
  • Economic aspects
  • Required processing steps


Our strength lies in finding different solutions and presenting alternatives in order to generate the greatest possible customer benefit. We can colour most plastics individually according to your requirements.

Plastics processed by HakaGerodur for pipes and hoses:

  • PP, PP GF, PE, PS, PC, rigid PVC, ABS or ASA for rigid pipes indoors and outdoors
  • PA 6, PA 66 GF 30, PA 6 GF 30, PA 6 GF 50, PBT, r.PET, PPO for special requirements
  • PA 6/­10, PA 6/­12, PA 12, FEP, PVDF, PB, TPU, TPE and soft PVC for flexible hoses and as sheathing
