Uponor Launches Industry-first PEX to CPVC Adapter Fittings
July 1, 2014
Uponor is launching an industry-first innovation with six new ProPEX® Lead-free (LF) Brass CPVC Adapter Fittings for transitioning from CPVC to PEX in commercial plumbing and hydronic distribution piping systems. The fittings, which are available in 1¼", 1½" and 2" sizes, are offered in a spigot and a socket adapter and all feature Uponor’s durable, reliable ASTM F1960 ProPEX expansion system for connecting to PEX piping. “These fittings offer designers and installers a fast and efficient solution for transitioning from CPVC to PEX in larger-diameter pipe sizes — something that the industry has not had available until now,” says Jayson Drake, director, Plumbing and Fire Safety at Uponor.
