ECOline Tubing

ECOline pipes are made of a high thermal resistance polyethylene PE-RT

Pipes dedicated to radiant heating are equipped with an EVOH anti-diffusion layer, and are produce as a 5-layer (5L) and 3-layer (3L) construction.

Why PE-RT?

Are we choosing inferior properties by opting for PERT² technology?

The answer is a decided NO – this newly developed technology of manufacturing provides the same performance as classic PE-X technology, and also – the life of the products used in the installation does not end with the demolition of the building.

The recovered material can be reused in consumer products and in line with the idea of recycling – what is currently not possible with the PE-X technology.

The above table shows that when using the 5L technology and the latest generation of PE-RT II material, the specified working pressures in various application classes and diameters are the same both for PERT² and PE-X pipes.

High and low temperature heating installations

application class 4 and 5 as per ISO 10508– comparison PE-X and PE-RT

As you can see above, the situation is the same when comparing the pressure resistance of PERT² and PE-X pipes in both high and low temperature heating installations. Both comparisons self-evidently undermine the stereotypes common on the installation market about the higher pressure resistance of crossed-linked PE-X polyethylene pipes when compared to PERT² pipes.

PE-RT is ecological solution for plumbing

When creating new solutions, we also think about the future – the service life of solutions and conscious and responsible waste management.

PE-RT is our declaration for the future.

In highly automated manufacturing processes, is used modern technological

solutions that minimise energy consumption and make it possible to generate

increasingly lower environmental impact.

Production methods and technologies – negative impact

and threat to the environment and health.

PE-RTPE-X
Energy savings in the production and processing of granulate. This technology does not require additional “reinforcing” treatmentsYESNOPE-Xa, PE-Xb: Additional energy expenditure for the production of the chemical additives making it possible to cross-link and wash out the residual chemical cross-linking additives PE-Xc: Energy to produce the electron stream necessary for cross-linking
Recycling and disposal fully possible, plastic to be used after its life cycleYESNORecycling not possible due to cross-linking.
Disposal possible only in the form of storing or incineration (CO2 emissions)
Full hygiene and safety, no processes harmful to health and environmentYESNOPE-Xa, PE-Xb: risk of insufficient flushing out residues of chemical additives which represent a real health hazard
