KWH Pipe Canada Ltd. (Mississauga, ON) has signed a three-year contract to provide a U.S. utility, Public Service Electric and Gas Co. (Newark, NJ), with gas pipes made from a bimodal polyethylene resin called PE100.

“This is the first multi-year contract awarded by a major gas distribution utility in North America that specifies the use of PE100 type material,” said Paul Van Warmerdam, president of KWH Canada.

PE2406 is currently the most common thermoplastic used in North America for gas pipes, Van Warmerdam explained.

This deal also marks KWH Canada’s first multi-year contract with an U.S. utility.
