The pipe is used in private homes or public buildings for the transportation of hot and cold potable water as well as for radiant or floor heating.
The main materials used are polyetylene (PE), crosslinked (PEX) or non-crosslinked (PERT), which provide long term heat & pressure resistance. Maillefer offers several technologies covering the main market needs and pipe standards (ASTM, NSF CSA & EN ISO).
PEX-B is made using a "Silane" or "Moisture Cure" method of cross-linking. This type of PEX is the most common and is manufactured by a large number of companies. The advantage of this technology is a ready to extrude co-polymer that has already all it's stabilisation and crosslinking properties as given by the material supplier.
PEX-C is manufactured using “Electronic Irradiation” method of crosslinking, also known as ""Cold"" crosslinking. Here, crosslinking is a separate process done downstream from extrusion by exposing the pipe within electron radiation beam chamber. The radiation emitted initiates the crosslinking process. PEX-c is a clean and chemical-free method for producing PEX.
The PERT material is a PE with Raised Temperature resistance. The PE resin provides excellent stress crack resistance and long term hydrostatic strength. The excellent weldability of this material offers the possibility to use fusion fittings. The pipe is very flexible, which facilitates installation particularily in cold weather conditions. Due to the absence of any chemical crosslinking agent, PERT has also good organoleptic properties for potable water.
PEX-AL-PEX, or AluPEX, or PEX/Aluminum/PEX pipes are made of aluminum strip sandwiched between two layers of PEX. The welded metal serves as an oxygen barrier to avoid corrosion of metallic parts found in the surrounding heating system. The thin aluminium layer provides some rigidity to the tube, which allows it to be shaped. The aluminium layer also provides structural resistance in order to safely withstand higher operating temperatures and pressures. The product is considered as the highest quality product for it's application.
Personnel change. Young colleagues with a thirst for learning are brought on board, while experienced employees move on to face new challenges. Equipment, technology and methods change too. The pace quickens and diversity of expertise grows. Not surprisingly, the demand for training on our micro-drip irrigation systems is on the rise, particularly for tailored training sessions targeting private groups. Read more

Maillefer has added a Longitudinal Tape Applicator unit into its product portfolio recently. With this unit, customers have the means to apply a radial water blocking feature for various cable types. Water blocking barriers are usually aluminium, copper or plastic based water swellable tapes. The longitudinal tape is applied during the same process as final sheath. Read more
Legend Valve & Fitting, Inc. has been in the business of providing plumbing and hydronic systems for over 30 years. The bulk of their business came from sales of copper & brass components and systems. That’s until Legend decided to explore the potential for PEX and PERT products nearly ten years ago. “And what a great decision that was,” sums up Mike Boehk, General Manager of American Legend Manufacturing, based in Michigan, USA.
