PEX tubing are characterized by complete absence of corrosion. Unlike steel, chemical and physical properties of PEX tubing ensure tightness and resistance to weight loss under the influence of corrosive substances (acids, alkalis, etc.) in the soil and transported to the environment during the entire period of operation. PEX tubing are resistant to degradation from atmospheric conditions.
PEX tubing are plastic, the bending radius of tubes – at least 10 outer diameters. Therefore, when installation of piping requires fewer fittings, it simplifies the design and construction of the pipeline. PEX tubing in 3,5-4 times lighter steel equivalent, well and securely welded at the factory and field conditions. For welding of PEX tubing do not need heavy equipment, lower power consumption (or fuel) compared to the welded steel pipes. The use of long tubes in coils reduce the number of welds is 15-20 times. All this greatly speeds up the construction of PEX pipe and reduces the cost of installation.
