Products and systems manufacturer Pegler Yorkshire has launched the revolutionary Tectite Flexible Metal System, available in the UK for the first time.
Tectite utilises multi-layer composite pipe (MLCP) tubing, which is constructed using a thin layer of aluminium flanked by cross-linked polyethylene, an environmentally friendly, industrial-strength plastic.
This offers installers and specifiers the perfect balance between the integrity of metal and the flexibility of plastic. Tectite is malleable enough to be shaped by hand, yet it is more resistant to warping than plastic piping, and it can handle temperatures of more than 100°C and working pressures up to 16 bar.
Designed for installation alongside the high-performance metal push-fit fittings range from Pegler Yorkshire, jointing does not require any expensive tooling – and is twice as quick as the capillary method, thanks to the use of pre-lubricated seals.
