ProPEX® Red Brass Adapters
Uponor’s ProPEX Red Brass Adapters offer a dependable alternative solution to standard yellow brass transition fittings for renovation projects and new residential developments in areas where aggressive water might exist.
The ProPEX Red Brass Adapters feature less than 15% zinc for greater immunity to dezincification and stress-corrosion cracking that can result from exposure to aggressive water conditions in municipal water systems or well water.
Use ProPEX Red Brass Adapters to your advantage when installing a complete Uponor plumbing system that incorporates Uponor’s durable PEX-a tubing, engineered plastic (EP) Fittings and Multi-port Tees.
