CORLIX® Corrugated Aluminum Culvert and Drainage Pipe
CORLIX corrugated aluminum pipe is the ideal pipe for municipal storm sewers, underground stormwater detention systems or any standard drainage project that must withstand alkali soils and erosive environments. The Ideal Pipe for Alkali Soils and Erosive Environments
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.
