Pex-Al-Pex is a tubing system comprised of one layer of PEX, another of aluminum that is inside, and an additional layer of PEX, coming together to hold the shape and structure of pipes. With the inner aluminum adding durability to PEX material, the Pex-Al-Pex tubes are able to keep their shape after being bent, which helps in various tubing applications. This material is preferred for heating systems and high-temperature setups for its capability to retain shape even under high temperatures. The completed tubing is flexible and non-corroding and boasts excellent resistance to acids, alkalis, salt solutions, oils, and fats.
The inner and outer area of crosslinked polyethylene are bonded with melt adhesive to a core of aluminum tubing for greater reinforcement and structural support. In fusing two different materials, Pex-Al-Pex is a PEX alternative for pipes with an oxygen barrier, greater rigidity, and can maintain its shape after being bent. This combination also retains PEX’s lighter weight to be carried around and installed with ease.
Taking advantage of PEX and aluminum’s strengths, Pex-Al-Pex tubing offers excellent flexibility that helps in faster installation. This tubing is also easy to connect to other systems, as they are compatible with most fittings without specialized tools. Furthermore, the crosslinking fibers of Pex give the tubing protection from frost cracking, extending its service life and reducing replacement costs.
The added layer of aluminum in between the PEX layers gives the tubing more functionality than its peers. Aside from allowing the Pex-Al-Pex tubing to handle higher temperatures than standard PEX tubing, it also prevents oxygen permeation into the piping. And with Pex-Al-Pex tubing being relatively lightweight, it is easy to install and transport.
Pex-Al-Pex has the best of both durable metals and flexible plastics, possessing plastic’s ability to be bent to different shapes for any connection and the rigidity to maintain such shapes. With the aluminum material, there is an oxygen barrier that prevents air and moisture from seeping into the pipe. The cleanliness of PEX makes potable water remain safe for use and resistant to chemicals.
