Natural Gas and Water Distribution Pipe

How does your natural gas and water pipe measure up?

Our CONTINUUM™ Bimodal Polyethylene Resins allow the development of extremely durable, leak-resistant natural gas and water distribution pipelines that offer outstanding long-term performance in virtually any climate. Having reliable and safe distribution pipes for natural gas and water is crucial. But as concerns about aging, deteriorating infrastructure and improved sustainability continue to rise, the need for safe, efficient delivery has never been more important. 

That’s where we come in - discover our portfolio of CONTINUUM™ Bimodal Polyethylene Resins below.

Enhanced durability and performance for CONTINUUM™ Resins 

Pipe produced with CONTINUUM™ Resins meets or exceeds industry standards, with a long track record of trusted, proven performance that goes far beyond conventional, unimodal polyethylene (PE) pipe:

  • Exceptional scratch and slow crack growth (SCG) resistance help extend service life, enhance pipeline integrity and reduce installation costs.
  • Remarkable rapid crack propagation (RCP) resistance helps prolong life with enhanced strength and durability in cold weather.
  • Significantly reduced notch sensitivity compared to unimodal PE.
  • Excellent high temperature pressure ratings allow use in extreme climates.
  • Strong fusion capabilities help produce seamless, extremely leak-resistant pipelines without mechanical fittings or gaskets, which tend to corrode and leak over time.  

Our versatile portfolio

Our versatile portfolio of bimodal medium density polyethylene (MDPE) and high density polyethylene (HDPE) resins enables a broad range of pipe size and thickness, with diameters up to 12 inches for PE2708 and 24 inches for PE4710.

Extremely tough yet flexible CONTINUUM™ Resins allow either conventional trench installation or trenchless, horizontal directional drilling (HDD).

Meeting specific, tailored needs while maintaining high quality  

Our proprietary bimodal technology, decades of experience and deep understanding of material science allow us to help meet specific, tailored needs while maintaining high levels of performance, processability and cost efficiency.  

By working closely with utilities, converters and industry organizations, we’re able to help address both current and evolving issues. One example? Our decision to develop both bimodal HDPE and MDPE resins grew out of insights we received through strong customer relationships.  

And our exclusive, regional pipe labs offer pipe extrusion capabilities along with a wide range of testing that includes hydrostatic, PENT, pipe fusion, RCP and more.

Long-lasting, virtually leak-free pipeline systems

We’re constantly working to develop long-lasting, virtually leak-free pipeline systems that help keep individuals and communities as safe as possible. For example, the outstanding strength and durability of CONTINUUM™ Bimodal Polyethylene Resins which help reduce the need for maintenance and replacement, as well as environmental impact. They also create opportunities to reduce pipe thickness and use less material while maintaining performance requirements. 


Our bimodal resins meet the most rigorous safety demands, including high-pressure ratings for the Plastic Pipe Institute (PPI) and ASTM International standards.


By enabling seamless pipelines with outstanding leak and corrosion resistance, CONTINUUM™ Bimodal Polyethylene Resins help conserve precious natural resources and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Less disruptive

Exceptional toughness and flexibility enable trenchless installation, which is typically less disruptive to communities and the environment.


Dow’s partners can expect easier, faster installation than metal pipe on any terrain.

Exceptional pigments 

Our heavy metal-free (HMF) yellow formulations feature no lead or cadmium-based pigments.

Operational efficiency

Less energy use during manufacturing and shipping can contribute to increased operational efficiency, reduced costs and a smaller carbon footprint.
