Thinner and lightweight pipes can reduce capital costs

Other than high strength and anti-corrosiveness, many contractors prefer polymer concrete pipes because they are much thinner and lightweight compared to similar strength-class concrete pipes. When considering the type of jacking pipes to use in your projects, it is important to also consider the pipe thickness since thicker pipes would result in higher capital investment on a larger-diameter jacking machine.

With thinner and lighter weight jacking pipes, contractors can look forward to a more straightforward and fuss-free jacking process.
