OverviewPerformance

Polidan® PEX

Monolayer and multilayer PEX pipes made from Polidan® compounds are flexible and have excellent strength from below freezing up to 95°C. PEX piping systems are quieter than rigid metal piping systems and require fewer fittings, making them easier and less costly to install.

Over the past 30 years, this unique combination of properties has allowed Polidan® PEX to successfully replace metal in piping materials used in pressurized hot water plumbing systems, service lines and hydronic radiant heating systems.

Polidan® PEX compounds are globally approved for use with hot potable water and are certified by KTW, NSF and WRc.
