PRINTEX was designed for processing by pipe extrusion method and it is recommended for economic production of pipes (PEX) used predominantly in building services pipework systems, hydronic radiant heating and cooling systems and domestic water piping.
Global population growth and ageing infrastructure have increased the need for durable, dependable, and sustainable plumbing and heating pipe systems and PEX pipe offers exceptional toughness, durability, and temperature resistance.
In brief, PRINTEX is a crosslinked high density polyethylene (HDPE) and it is classified as a PEX-b.
PEX-b pipe has the highest bursting pressure compared to PEX-a and a similar or better resistance to oxidation – a very important factor for plumbing installations. Furthermore, PEX-b pipe has been in use for over 40 years with no known issues.
