Contech’s CORLIX aluminum pipe provides a predictable service life of
more than 75 years. It is the ideal pipe for municipal storm sewers,
underground storm water detention systems or any standard drainage
project that must withstand alkali soils and erosive environments. In
addition to its long design life, CORLIX is an economical alternative
to reinforced concrete pipe.
CORLIX weighs only 1/35 as much as reinforced concrete. Lighter
weight means easier installation. Trench width (and depth) are reduced
due to the smaller outside diameter, resulting in time and cost savings
for both excavation and backfill.
Single lengths up to 40 feet ensure more accurate pipe alignment at
time of placement and through the life of the system. Longer lengths
save installation time with fewer joints.
Easy, fast pipe cutting on the job is simple with standard tools.
Since there are no riveted joints, CORLIX can be cut at any point. Cuts
and welds need no protective treatment. Wide availability of fittings
saves installation time in the field. Fabricated elbows, manholes and
catch basins minimize hydraulic losses at junction structures.
