The advantages of synthetic materials and metal in one product
Resistance to corrosion
The total resistance to corrosion, to construction materials and the main chemical compounds allow it to be used in a wide variety of applications, both residential and industrial.
The combination of crosslinked polyethylene and aluminium guarantees excellent flexibility when bending (also when bent manually) and dimensional stability in the long term.
Excellent acoustic insulation
The elastic nature of the crosslinked polyethylene allows excellent absorption of vibrations and therefore an excellent acoustic insulation.
Reduced pressure loss
The extremely smooth internal surface, as well as preventing the formation of deposits such as lime scale, ensures reduced pressure loss also with the passage of time.
Guaranteed durability of at least 50 years
The system has a guaranteed durability of at least 50 years in compliance with product standards; in this period the product can be used at pressures of 10 bar and temperatures as high as 95°C.
Lower thermal expansion
Thermal expansion is approximately 8 times lower than all-plastic pipes and is similar to the expansion in metal pipes.
Barrier against oxygen and light
The butt welded aluminium layer acts as a total barrier against oxygen and light, which in plastic pipes would otherwise favour algae growth and the corrosion of the metal parts that make up the system.
The system is made up of materials that are completely non-toxic and is certified for the transport of consumable fluids and drinking water.
The range of fittings, accessories and relative tools is extremely wide and allows all requirements to be met. The fittings are available both in metal and in technopolymer to cover different system applications.
Ideal solution in areas subject to earthquakes
It is the ideal solution in areas subject to earthquakes thanks to the excellent mechanical properties such as flexibility and the capacity to alleviate vibrations.
Wide range of diameters
Wide range of diameters from De 14 mm to De 90 mm
Light in weight
The pipes are extremely light in weight as compared with metal pipes: weight is 1/3 of a similar copper pipe and is 1/10 of a similar steel pipe.
Pexal® and Mixal® are produced with materials that can be completely recycled, which, at the end of their service life can be recovered. The production processes used are energy efficient and are of a low environmental impact; in terms of the environment and conservation of resources, Pexal® and Mixal® are in line with Green Building principles.
