High performance and leakage-free plumbing and heating systems

Our advanced pressure pipe material solutions cover applications such as domestic water piping, under-floor heating, radiator connections, wall cooling/heating installations, district heating and industrial pipe networks. Whilst meeting the most stringent international standards for performance and reliability in the above applications, our solutions also provide:

  • Safe contact with drinking water
  • Long service life (according to applicable standards)
  • Chemical and corrosion resistance
  • Ease of manufacture, including all components and fittings
  • Fast and simple installation

The individually unique properties of our PP-R, PP-RCT, PE-RT and PE-X materials make them ideal complements as inner and outer corrosion-resistant layers in aluminium or other types of reinforced composite pipe constructions.

Borstar® PP-R: High performance and enhanced cold impact resistance for domestic plumbing


Borstar® RA140E is a new generation, high performance PP-R with enhanced cold impact resistance for domestic and industrial plumbing as well as heating and cooling applications. It is designed to deliver excellent impact performance, pressure resistance at elevated temperatures and quality consistency. Key benefits include:

  • Optimal balance of processability and mechanical properties for reduced injection moulding cycle times and enhanced extrusion speeds
  • Lightweight and thus easy to transport and install
  • Highly resistant to corrosion and harsh chemicals
  • Odourless
  • Easy weldability

Borstar® PE-RT: Flexibility in domestic hot and cold water and industrial applications  

Borstar® PE-RT is a natural, bimodal HDPE for applications at raised temperatures, with excellent processability for high speed extrusion lines with excellent output. It is specifically developed for the manufacture of flexible pipes in domestic hot and cold water and industrial applications. It has optimised mechanical properties like weldability, tensile strength, elongation and ESCR and is produced with the advanced Borstar® technology. Key benefits include:

  • Easy processing and high output rate
  • Easy joints connection
  • Super stress crack resistance
  • Long term pressure resistance
  • Outstanding surface quality
  • Good flexibility
  • Wide range of application temperatures
  • No taste and odours
 

BorPex™: Tailored to commercial crosslinking for plumbing applications

By enabling converters to use their own preferred method of processing, our PE-X grades are specially tailored for use in commercial crosslinking technologies peroxide (PE-Xa) and irradiation (PE-Xc). Our selection of high and medium density crosslinkable PE materials are noted for their:

  • Superior mechanical and thermal performance
  • Resistance to crack propagation
  • Impact resistance and long-term durability
  • Consistent quality and easy processing
  • Good crosslinking response
