Why choose PE-Xa pipes?
The crosslinked polyethylene (PE-Xa) pipes have molecular chains attached in a three-dimensional network, which makes them more durable within a wide range of temperatures and pressures. In turn, the cross-linking of Uponor PE-Xa pipe is above 82%, which gives our pipes a thermalelastic memory. This high degree of crosslinking results in a more uniform product with no weak links in the molecular chain. The properties of PE-Xa pipe make it the most flexible PE-X pipe on the market and also offers a better resistance to stress than either PE-Xb or PE-Xc pipe materials.
