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.
Maillefer has a complete program of extrusion heads which fulfils the needs for pipe & tube manufacturing. Typically proposed in our line offerings, as well as for performance upgrades and component replacements. The TL and ELH longitudinal heads, and the VLCH and ECH crossheads form the four families that cover pipe & tube applications. They respond to a variety of design requirements like single layer or multi-layer, stripe or skin options, co-extrusion or tandem processes, countless adhesives, polymers and elastomers, and special connections and tooling configurations.

The 100th multi-layer PAL line is going to Chinaust and in particular to their facilities in Changchun in northeast China. Factory Acceptance Tests took place during the last days of June 2019 in the presence of a four person delegation led by Li Hongjie, General Manager of Changchun Chinaust. Not only was it the occasion to mark a successful acceptance by the customer, but also to highlight the delivery of the 100th multi-layer automotive tube extrusion line. Indeed, representatives from both companies began plans for celebrating Chinese style once the line ready for production. Read more

Maillefer has recently acquired a Cable Checker unit for our new R&D lab. The unit is essentially a microscope connected to a hot oil bath for high resolution analysis of all parts of the cable. This equipment is particularly suited for inspection of extruded XLPE (cross-linkable polyethylene) insulated Medium, High and/or Extra-High Voltage cable samples. Both trouble shooting and quality control inspection are done with very high accuracy. Read more
