Modern technology is not standing still, develop ways of producing and appearing more and more new building materials, previously had no parallel. This statement is true for PEX tubing, which have become especially popular in recent years.
In order to evaluate the modern market of PEX tubing, it is necessary to consider their views.
1. PEX pipes. The method of installation is much simpler compared to conventional tubes, the same can be said about the speed of the process of installation, which increases at times. In this species there are a number of advantages. First, they are significantly cheaper than steel. Secondly, the useful life increases by 2 times. Thirdly, it does not require maintenance of pipes, which eliminates the need for cathodic protection. Fourthly, PEX pipes are resistant to corrosion and corrosion. Fifthly, indicators of this type of heat pipes are low enough, thus reducing heat loss. Sixth, they are 2 times lighter than steel counterparts, which facilitates the process of installation. And finally, in the seventh, the material in terms of environmental standards is safe and does not contribute to the growth of harmful bacteria and microorganisms.
2. PVC pipes. This type of pipe has two properties that set them apart from others. This, above all, low flammability, and then to a high rate of resistance to various chemical influences. Here, as an example, other products made of PVC. Conveyor belt of PVC used in the harshest industrial conditions, where it is possible negative impact of external factors that can destroy the fixed assets and inventories. Nevertheless, the useful life of the product is high enough, it can be compared perhaps only with products such as transmission belts, which is directly responsible for the security man.
3. HDPE. This kind of pipes made of PEX with low pressure. This relatively new building material is strong enough and fits perfectly in the price-quality ratio of this kind of products.
4. PEX tubing (in the literal sense of the word). This is not just PVC pipes and HDPE, it is also a product of polypropylene PPRC, low-density PEX LDPE, multilayer pipe PE-RT and PE-X, as well as cross-linked plastic.
The list can go on for a long time. The above are only the basic types of PEX tubing.
