We are thrilled to unveil the newest item to be added to the Infloor product line, InfloorPERT Tubing. Our new tubing boasts flexibility, durability, has a proven 30-year track record, and comes with a comprehensive 25-year manufacturer’s warranty. It is perfect for residential heating, commercial heating, and snowmelt applications. It will officially be available for purchase in April.
InfloorPERT (polyethylene raised temperature; PE-RT) tubing is constructed with five layers of material, giving it significant strength. The core and outermost layer are PE-RT, and sandwiched in the middle is an integral ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH) oxygen barrier. The five-layer tubing is more flexible and easier to install than other piping materials used in hydronic radiant heating, cooling, snowmelt, and distribution piping applications.
PE-RT has been used successfully for nearly 30 years in radiant heating applications, and now commands about 25% market share in Western Europe.
InfloorPERT is manufactured with Dowlex™ 2344, which offers high temperature resistance and long life without cross-linking. The tubing has ratings up to 180°F (82°C) at 80 psi, and the EVOH barrier limits oxygen diffusion through the walls of the tubing to less than 0.10/m3/day at 104°F (40°C) water temperature.
Choose from a variety of tube sizes that best suit your project, ranging from 3/8” up to 1” with a bend ranges of 2.5” to 5.6” and are available in a different coil lengths from 300’ to 1,200’.
InfloorPERT uses the same fast and reliable connection systems that have been used with PEX for years, including CinchClamps™ stainless steel connectors, CrimpRings™ precision-formed, ductile copper connectors, and T-20 compression fittings.
The recyclable InfloorPERT tubing is certified to ASTM F2623 for PE-RT SDR 9 Tubing by NSF and CSA. This standard includes requirements and testing methods for materials, workmanship, dimensions, sustained hydrostatic pressure strength, and bend strength. InfloorPERT meets or exceeds these standards.
