PP and PEX for Plumbing & Heating

    

PP pipes for heating systems               PEX for underfloor heating and cooling systems 

During the last 20 years, polypropylene random copolymers (PP-R) and cross linked PE for full range plumbing and heating systems have been developed and successfully approved in many countries worldwide. Furthermore, heating pipes for football grounds, airfields and sidewalks, district heating and industrial applications extend the usage of PP-R and PEX grades.

Benefits include:

  • Long life of at least 50 years
  • No limitations to PH value of water
  • No contact corrosion, when exposed to iron particles
  • Taste and odour neutral
  • Bacteriological neutral
  • Ease of manufacture
  • Fast & easy installation
  • Entire plastics systems available
  • Good chemical resistance
  • Low tendency to encrustations

N.B. A new generation of this material is now available; PP-RCT. Pipes produced from this material can be operated at higher stresses at elevated temperatures.
