One System and Fittings for Water and Gas
The UNIPEX™ system has been developed in response to the increasing demand for lead free plumbing systems in Australia.
UNIPEX™ utilizes one common fitting for both water and gas applications, eliminating the need to carry separate water and gas fittings.
The body of UNIPEX™ is made from a high-performance, lead free, DZR silicon brass. The crimp ring is made of high quality stainless steel which when used with the UNIPEX? crimping tool ensures a consistent reliable joint with both the UNIPEX™ water and gas pipes.
UNIPEX™ pipe is a high-quality cross-linked polyethylene PN20, SDR9 pipe, consisting of an inner core of PEX-B material encased in an outer layer of tough High-density polyethylene.
UNIPEX™ Water Pipe is used for potable (hot and cold), recycled and rain water systems as well as glycol systems.
UNIPEX™ Gas Pipe is a multilayer composite (PE-AL- PEX) gas pipe specifically for natural gas and LPG applications.
The pipe construction in made up of an internal PEXb inner layer encased in a layer of aluminium, which acts as a barrier layer, stopping gas migration, and an exterior layer of durable polyethylene to protect the aluminium layer.
The UNIPEX™ system should always be installed in compliance with AS/NZS3500 for water applications and AS/NZS5601 gas applications.
