About PEX Poly Expander F1960 Tees
A poly expander F1960 tee refers to a specific type of tee fitting used in plumbing systems. The "poly" in poly expander indicates that it is designed for use with polyethylene (PEX) A piping, which is a type of flexible plastic tubing commonly used in residential and commercial plumbing applications. It is also referred to as a PEX A fitting.
The "F1960" designation refers to the ASTM F1960 standard, which outlines the specific dimensions and requirements for PEX expansion fittings. F1960 fittings utilize an expansion method for installation, where the PEX tubing is expanded with a specialized tool, allowing for easy insertion of the fitting. As the tubing contracts back to its original size, it creates a tight and secure connection.
A tee fitting is used to create a branch connection in a plumbing system, allowing for the flow of water in multiple directions. They are available in many sizes to help you complete any job.
