LDPE coating would have no chemical resistance from Acetylene dichloride
The Physical properties are as follows:
Vicat Softening Point:
93°C (Maximum Operating Temperature)
55 Shore D
Elongation at Break
This range is ideal for use within walls, outside, underground and in aggressive atmospheres. The covering creates a thermal barrier reducing heat loss underground and condensation from exposure in extreme weather conditions.
Tubes can withstand temperatures from -40 to +114°C and can be bent (except 35-54mm) and jointed as per standard plain EN1057 tubes using EN1254 fittings. To expose bare copper, plastic coating needs to be cut and pulled back away from the joint and flame (if brazing). Once joint has been made coating needs returning back to original position and both joint and cut need to be protected using an impervious plastic tape. See Plastic Coated Copper Tube Installation Guide for specific details.
