Polyethylene drip irrigation tubing is used as the main lateral or as the sub-lateral in the design and installation of drip irrigation or low volume irrigation systems on a wide range of applications, including commercial and residential. The 1/2" polyethylene drip tubing, with .670 OD, from DIG Corporation is available in 250’ and 500’ coils. This 1/2" brown tubing is made of linear low-density polyethylene resin.
The poly drip tubing exhibits a combination of outstanding environmental stress-cracking resistance and burst strength. The Dow FINGERPRINT™ DFDA-7510 raisin used in the manufacturing of DIG, drip tubing, includes an anti-oxidant to protect the end product from thermal degradation. The materials selected contain the Dow FINGERPRINT™ (trace element) that certifies the product and provides verification as to the identity of the drip tubing in the event of failure.
