ADS drives market share gains by displacing traditional materials and driving industry conversion to our products

Market Conversion is our History

When ADS' original single wall HDPE pipe was introduced in 1966 it was designed to displace traditional clay tiling used in agriculture applications. By the late 1970's, the market had almost fully converted over to plastic pipe.

Modern ads

In the 1980’s ADS introduced its’ dual wall N-12 high density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe and began converting traditional materials used in the construction markets to plastic pipe. The corrugated pipe with a smooth interior is faster and safer to install, lighter weight and manufactured in longer lengths than traditional materials.

To further drive market conversion, in 2010 ADS introduced its High Performance (HP) pipe made from polypropylene. The HP pipe is increasing conversion from traditional materials in applications where greater pipe stiffness is required, such as infrastructure and airports, while maintaining installation and product advantages provided by the N-12 pipe relative to traditional materials.
