Cross-Linkable Compounds

Polidan® PEX

         
Used in monolayer and multilayer piping systems, this family of silane cross-linkable polyethylene compounds offers outstanding flexibility and strength from below freezing up to 95°C. These materials are highly resistant to creep and chemical attack as well as crack formation and propagation. Specialty rades for thermal welding, in- situ cross-linking and industrial applications are available.
Fluoropolymers

Solef® PVDF

   
Provides outstanding resistance to chemicals, UV light and fatigue, along with exceptional barrier properties, scratch resistance and ease of processing. High LTHS values make it well-suited for fittings used in multilayer piping systems that operate under high pressure (up to 10 bar) and temperatures up to 95°C.

Halar® ECTFE

               
Partially fluorinated polymer that combines excellent mechanical properties with exceptional resistance to heat and chemicals. Fills the performance gap between PVDF and fully fluorinated polymers.
Sulfone Polymers

Radel® PPSU

               
Offers higher fatigue resistance, better chemical resistance and significantly higher impact strength than PSU. It has the highest LTHS of any sulfone polymer, making it well-suited for fittings used in multilayer piping systems that operate under high pressure (up to 10 bar) and temperatures up to 95°C.

Acudel®
mod. PPSU

             
Proprietary formulations that fill the cost-performance gap between PPSU and PSU. They provide toughness and chemical resistance along with hydrolytic and dimensional stability for plumbing systems with less demanding pressure and temperature requirements.

Udel® PSU

           
Exhibits low creep, good toughness and excellent dimensional stability in hot water and steam. These attributes combine with proven resistance to oxidative aging to make it cost-effective material applications requiring continuous exposure to hot chlorinated water.
Semi-Aromatic Polyamides

Amodel® PPA

               
High-performance polyamides suitable for applications with intermittent exposure to hot chlorinated water. Delivers a number of performance advantages over conventional polyamides, including higher operating temperatures, lower moisture absorption, better dimensional stability and superior resistance to creep and fatigue.
Vinyls

SolVin®
Siamvic®
Benvic®

             
These polymers offer a high cost-performance ration for pipe applications in cold water (temperatures up to 45°C) for soil and drinking water systems. A wide range of pipes and fittings is available with diameters from 32mm to over 400mm.
