PexFlex pipe are flexible, pre insulated pipe systems with a complete range of fittings and joints in all available pipe dimensions. The semi-flexible polyurethane foam with its closed cells has a high insulation value, is Freon free and environmentally friendly. The foam is molded directly around the carrier pipe, followed by extrusion of the jacket; no spacers are required, therefore thermal bridges are eliminated.
A proprietary Polymer membrane is incorporated between the PUR foam and PE outer jacket to avoid the migration of cell gases through the jacket over the long term. This foil material is made up of a special polymer with PEL adhesive on both sides, bonding the foam to the casing. The smooth polyethylene (LDPE) jacket is strong and is able to resist any impacts or blows incurred during transport or installation. The jacket pipe is resistant to both high and low temperatures and is UV treated. In the solid-foamed flexible system, the carrier pipe, polyurethane foam and LDPE jacket pipe are bonded together, eliminating the risk of water penetration along the carrier pipe. In operation, the system is held in place by the soil friction. The plastic properties of the Pex carrier pipe is utilized to absorb thermal expansion, consequently these Pex pipes are self compensating and expansion need not be considered. The PEX carrier pipe features an EVOH external oxygen diffusion barrier, which prevents oxygen from diffusing into the water. The PEX-A carrier pipe is also NSF61 certified and suitable for potable/sanitary water applications
Tricon Insulated Pex is ideal for applications that include heat transfer for:
- Snow and Ice Melt Systems
- District heating
- Hydronic piping
- Process piping
- Marine piping
