The provision of polyethylene encasement avoids the direct contact of ductile iron pipes with surrounding aggressive environment. However, polyethylene encasement is not intended as a water-tight system. Initially moisture between ductile iron pipes and polyethylene encasement contains some oxygen which shall be ultimately depleted and this would put a stop to the oxidation reaction. This process leads to a stable and stagnant environment near the pipe and it provides a protective environment.
