Manufactured by Rehau
Brand: MUNICIPEX by Rehau
MUNICIPEX is a cross-linked, polyethylene (PEXa) pipe engineered specifically for the potable water industry, with the following attributes: lightweight, shippable in coil form, high impact resistance, low thermal conductivity, and resistance to corrosion.
Rehau's cross-linked polyethylene (PEXa) pipe is backed by over 35 years of experience and more than one billion feet (300 million metres) of installation experience.
MUNICIPEX meets all necessary certifications and is field proven for use in municipal service lines. MUNICIPEX is more flexible than other piping materials, ensuring high impact resistance with normal backfill, so pipe will not crush or collapse.
With much lower thermal conductivity than copper, deep-frost freezing may be delayed or prevented completely. Unlike copper and composite pipe, MUNICIPEX will expand if frozen, rather than splitting or cracking. It connects to standard compression joint valves and fittings right off the shelf, so it's easy and convenient to install.
