Why Use HousePEX PEX Tubing?

HousePEX PEX-A and PEX-C Properties

HousePEX pipe has outstanding performance in pipe flexibility & pressure resistance. You can bend our PEX-A to a 4” radius and HousePEX PEX-C to a 6" raduis. Try that with any other PEX and your going to kink it. This means faster and easier installation with a superior result.

How is HousePEX PEX-A Made?

The raw material used is HDPE (High Density PE ). Due to our unique raw material blend and our peroxide process we achieve a lower degree of crystalline, this makes our pipe more flexible then our competitors. Our very special process technology also enables us to achieve a superior pressure resistance, which qualifies the pipe as a PE-X 100 Material (a PE-X 100 Material has a higher pressure resistance then the requirement for High Density PE-X ).

The practical implication of this is more comfortable and faster installation for you combined with an even higher degree of safety for the user.
