Reinforced Concrete Pipe
With a design life of up to 100 years and the majority of the structural strength built into the pipe, reinforced concrete pipe is the most commonly used drainage pipe material. Round drainage pipe is the most readily available and cost efficient of the various shapes of reinforced concrete pipe.
Reinforced concrete pipe is designed and manufactured for use as storm drainage pipe, as culverts, and for jacking and tunneling applications.
Pipe joints can be manufactured as tongue and groove using pre-formed mastic strip sealants per ASTM C990, or as single offset joints utilizing a profile rubber gasket per ASTM C443.
