Aquatherm’s new polypropylene-random (PP-R)-to-PEX transitions come in ½-in., ¾-in., and 1-in. sizes and are designed to make it easy to design and install Aquatherm systems that integrate PEX tubing.
The transitions, which are made from PP-R and brass, are heat-fused to Aquatherm pipe on one side and crimped to PEX pipe on the other. They meet ASTM F1807 specifications, connect seamlessly to standard Imperial PEX sizes, and are designed to reduce cost and the risk of leakage by eliminating a threaded connection in the transition to PEX. —Aquatherm
