About PEX Tubing
Choose from PEX A F1960 Expansion or PEX B F1807 tubing. We carry all of the fittings and valves that go with the tubing.
PEX A tubing is very flexible and has memory which means it can return to its original shape even after being bent or stretched. Another notable feature of PEX A tubing is its improved resistance to stress cracks and impact damage compared to other PEX types. It can withstand freezing temperatures without breaking or rupturing, making it suitable for cold weather applications. PEX A tubing is joined using the expansion method, where specialized expansion fittings and tools are used to expand the tubing temporarily, allowing for easy insertion of the fittings. As the tubing contracts back to its original size, it creates a secure and watertight connection with the fittings.
PEX B tubing is slightly less flexible than PEX A but still offers good flexibility and ease of installation. It may require more fittings and supports for certain application due to reduced flexibility. It offers excellent resistance to corrosion, scale and chemical degradation. It is commonly used for both hot and cold water distribution systems, as well as for radiant heating systems and snow melting applications.
