Safe Pipes,
Safe Water

What is PE-Xb meaning?

PE-Xb is a technology for making pipes from cross-linked polyethylene using the silane method, which is very cheap and also increases the durability of plastic pipes when used to transport chlorinated water.

Did you know that in piping systems where water does not move, drinking water can be contaminated with legionella bacteria?

Dangerous bacteria form coatings on the inner surface of the pipe which can contaminate drinking water and subsequently cause health problems for those who drink it.

Are you building or renovating a house? Sanitary and heating pipes made of PE-Xb will last for decades.

Do not leave the choice of plumbing pipes to the plumber, choose for yourself. You will be sure that the pipes will not crack within a few years.
