Benefits of PE-Xb Technology
Pe-Xb polyethylene crosslinking technology using silane is used extensively worldwide, mainly due to the unique properties of the PE-Xb material, which is used to manufacture water and gas pipes.
PE‑Xb is best performing material for sanitary & heating pipes
Increased resistance to chlorinated water and high temperatures are unique properties of PE-Xb plastic pipes, which means that products made from this material are the ideal choice for water supply and heat distribution system applications.
Main Advantages of PE‑Xb
Due to silan crosslinking method PE-Xb pipe holds for ages
High flexibility of PE‑Xb pipes allow you to reduce need for fittings
Even under strong pressure PE‑Xb won’t let you owing to high resistance
Chemicals or disinfectants do not harm PE‑Xb pipes even with high chlorinated water
Universal fitting system and wider use of PE-Xb tubing worldwide make installation reaslly fast and easy
HIGH TEMPERATURES RESISTANCE
High temperatures do not affect the superior performance of PE‑Xb
EXCELLENT SURFACE FINISHING
Surface finishing of PB-Xb assures smooth fluid or gas flow inside
QUALITY VS. PRICE
PE-Xb is the most typical and the most affordable type of plastic pipes used worldwide
Utilization of PE-Xb Worldwide
of all sanitary pipes are made of PE-Xb
of plumbers rely on PE-Xb pipes
Introducing the production of PE-Xb
Polyethylene (PE) is a thermoplastic polymer, which is not itself rigid, or resistant to high temperatures, however, its properties can be improved considerably by crosslinking using the peroxide (PE-Xa), silane (PE-Xb, radiation (PE-Xc) or azo method (PE-Xd). The silane method is used to produce crosslinked polyethylene in a water bath or steam chamber in the presence of silane (SiH4), which is used as a linking agent.
