Manufactured with a highly reflective white material on the external skin, THERMAPIPE® reduces the absorption of heat.
POLlplex® polyethylene pipes may be joined economically using thermal butt-welding or electrofusion equipment: alternately diameters up to DN 110 are commonly joined using lplex compression couplings complying with AS/NZS 4129. These fittings make joints quick and easy, which can be undone and reused when altering the system layout.
