Uponor PEX Tubing
Uponor first introduced the world to crosslinked polyethylene (PEX) tubing in the early 1970s. With more than 30 years of service — longer than any other PEX manufacturer in North America — Uponor PEX is the fastest-growing choice for residential and commercial plumbing systems, thanks to its powerful, inherent advantages over metallic and rigid-plastic piping.
PEX is an acronym for crosslinked polyethylene. Polyethylene is the raw material and the X refers to the crosslinking of the polyethylene across its molecular chains.
Smallest bend radius
Tested and proven for over 30 years
Most flexible tubing
Least likely to kink
Highest degree of crosslinking
Uponor PEX is the clean, green and healthy alternative — no solder, nor torches, no fluxes or solvents. All connections are made with engineered fittings that, when properly installed, are leak-resistant and will last the life of the system.
Uponor PEX is lightweight and flexible, requiring substantially fewer fittings than copper or rigid-plastic systems, so it installs more easily and efficiently.
Uponor PEX is quiet, with no pipe noise or water hammer. Uponor PEX also features low thermal transfer, so it is virtually sweat-free in most environments.
Uponor PEX is durable. The superior makeup of our PEX makes it resistant to freezing and to aggressive water and soils — the kinds of problems that cause metal systems to fail prematurely.
Wirsbo AQUAPEX® Tubing
There are several different kinds of PEX tubing on the market and they are not all alike.
Wirsbo AQUAPEX tubing has distinctive properties that make it ideal for plumbing and fire protection applications.
The tubing is UL listed for use in residential fire protection systems.
Uponor's exclusive ProPEX® fittings take advantage of the tubing's unique shape memory to make solid, permanent connections, minimizing the risks of leaks.
