Multi-layer pipes are an advanced solution in plumbing and heating systems, offering a combination of the best features from plastic and metallic pipes. Composed of two layers of cross-linked polyethylene (PEX), two layers of adhesive, and an intermediate layer of aluminum, these pipes are a significant evolution from traditional PEX pipes.
The incorporation of an aluminum layer provides multi-layer pipes with unique advantages. On one hand, they possess the flexibility, lightness, corrosion resistance, ease of handling, and long lifespan typically associated with plastic pipes. On the other hand, they also offer the high-temperature and pressure resistance, oxygen diffusion tightness, and shape retention of metallic pipes.
