Recommended Pipe for Hydronic Systems
The oxygen barrier is required to prevent ingress of oxygen which will fuel corrosion within the system. The PEX-a pipe is able to withstand higher pressures, is more kink resistant and considerably more flexible than competing Pex-pipes. This means an easier installation for the installer.
The oxygen diffusion barrier encases PEX-a completely, preventing the entry of oxygen into the heating system via the pipe work. The tough outer layer is designed to withstand the rigours of surrounding workloads, ensuring that the oxygen barrier remains intact. This significantly reduces the risk of corrosion within the entire system.
PEX-a pipe is what we recommend at the heart of all our underfloor heating systems because it is strong, flexible, kink resistant and comes with our best warranties, guaranteed.
