Multilayer pipes are an evolved version of PEX or PERT pipes and are also known as composite pipes. They are commonly used in Europe and other developed countries for underfloor heating, plumbing and sanitary installations for over 3-4 decades.
The pipes are formed by extruding temperature resistant PE-RT or PEX with a welded aluminum sheet inside. The aluminum layer helps reduce the thermal elasticity of the pipe.
Our aluminum layer is welded face to face and not overlapped for better technical results.
Our pipes are PE-RT/Al/PE-RT with EVOH (oxygen barrier) which protects against bacterial growth..
Multilayer pipes are highly flexible whilst having a high resistance to temperature and pressure. They are much more resistant to corrosion compared to GI pipes.
Our pipes go through a stringent thermocycle testing process which ensures a system life of 50 years.
All our multilayer pipes are manufactured in Europe conforming to the relevant DIN EN standards with certifications from leading testing institutes.
Due to the aluminum layer, once bent a multilayer pipe retains its shape thus behaving more like a metal pipe than plastic.

PE-X stands for cross linked polyethylene. Cross linking is a chemical process that increases the bonds between macromolecules to create a more complex structure than regular polyethylene.
METHODS OF CROSS-LINKING:
PEX-a: Peroxide method
PEX-b: Silane method
PEX-c: Electron bombardment
PEX-d: Azo compound (experimental)
Advantages of cross-linking:
Increased working temperature and pressure.
Enhanced chemical resistance
Decreased deformation rate.
Enhanced resistance to shock and abrasion.
