Insulated Pex Pipes

This exceptional product has layers of Polyethylene foam with radiant barrier. Available from 3 to 5 layers. Manufacturer claims greater insulating value than any foam-filled product out there hands down due the reflective nature of the foil-faced close-cell foam insulation wrap. The outer shell is made from 100% new plastic, not recycled. It is also much heavier than the draintile you find at most building centers. 

The Premium version come with a white outer pipe and slightly thicker insulation and 100%* made in North America. (usually all USA but some components may come from Canada)      (*except pex-al-pex)

These Insulated Pipes are not a bubble wrap layered product.

ValuFlexTM  Foam insulated pex

highly efficient insulated pex pipes. Specially designed to respond to the most intensive environments and climates, the pex pipes are insulated with almost 5 inches of high quality, closed cell polyethylene foam which provides thermal performance and protection against water migration. Two pex pipes are used for supply and return.

The shell is a 5" ID plastic corrugated tile pipe that prevents environmental water, harsh environmental conditions or particles to get into the system which could interrupt the efficiency of your installation. The heavy duty tile also prevents the foam from getting compressed which will also lose its thermo efficiency.

Pex Tubing

Pex tubing is manufactured to SDR9 standards which is the same outside diameter as copper pipe but has a wall thickness 1/9th the diameter. You need to be real careful when you see something advertized like "true 1 inch" or "Not 1 inch OD like others" because 99% of the time they are selling metric pex and you may have a hard time finding fittings(especially when they don't tell you the real size) and you have no option for crimp fittings.  Also, if you ever have a problem and need to repair it you probably won't be able to find fittings locally.

NB= Non Oxygen Barrier Pex  OB= Oxygen Barrier Pex

OB usually isn't required unless you are running a pressurized system with no chemicals. It never hurts to use OB pex on an open system (open system has overflow tube at boiler) but is usually just a waste of money and doesn't make any difference.

NOTE:
* Non Barrier pex tubing is either Red or Blue throughout the pipe (inside and outside ).
* Oxygen Barrier pex tubing is either Red or Blue on the exterior but the inside will appear almost white.
(Example: the 3/4" Pex above is Non Barrier and the 1" Pex is Oxygen Barrier ( inside almost white ). )
* All Pex tubing is pressure rated at 80 psi @ 200 degrees and 100 psi @ 180 degrees.
* Our pex is complies with ASTM F876/F877 standards with ROHS certification

Pex-Al-Pex Tubing

Pex-al-pex is sold as inside diameter instead of copper tube size. It has a few advantages over normal pex. It doesn't expand in length so if you have an installation that can not allow for expansion when the pex gets hot you may want to consider it. Also the sizes fall between pex so it is also a good alternative if you need something a little bigger than 1" pex.

PEX-AL-PEX is made with an exterior layer of PEX then adhesive followed by a layer of aluminum, another layer of adhesive and finally a layer of PEX. The aluminum acts as an oxygen barrier so all PAP tubing is considered OB.
