What is a PE‑Xb about?

PEX is the acronym for Crosslinked Polyethylene.

PE‑Xb knows that time is money!

PE‑Xb is more flexible than other plastics and reduces your need for fittings! That safes you time and money.

PE‑Xb lasts a lifetime!

PE‑Xb pipes last over 100 years. Your guarantees will survive your customer.

PE‑Xb does not judge!

PE‑Xb is not harmed by chemicals and disinfectants. Your guarantee won´t be leaking.

PE‑Xb is reliable!

Even under strong pressure PE‑Xb won´t let you down.

PE‑Xb likes the heat!

High temperatures do not affect the superior performance of PE‑Xb.

PE-Xb, Best for sanitary & heating pipes

PE‑Xb is best performing material for sanitary & heating pipes

SILON

PE‑Xb advantages

PE‑Xb is the only material of choice under future conditions of increased chlorination of potable water

Temperature resistance

Problem-free usage in case of hot water applications.

Pressure resistance

Higher resistance to water hammer. Safety buffer in case that water expands bringing enormous pressure to the pipe wall – for example in case that the installations filled with water are exposed to temperatures below 0°C.

Scratch resistance

Less vulnerable by installation and treatment on construction site. Resistant to slow crack propagation – applying scratches and micro cracks to the pipe’s surface

Disinfectant resistance

Resistant against chemical corrosion – prepared for any further disinfectant level in drinking water increase.

Reliability

PEX-b has extended lifetime – at least 50 % - compared to PE-RT

Temperature resistance

High construction stability and fewer system failures (pipes do not loosen from fittings).

Pressure resistance

No problems even if the pressure control fails.

Scratch resistance

No problems with rough surrounding and by installation on construction side.

Reliability

Extended life time and material stability without need of further repairs or maintenance.

Scratch resistance

High mechanical resistance against damages during installation and before final floor finishing.

Reliability

Extended life time and mechanical properties of PEX-b pipes brings long term resistance to failures.

Pressure resistance

Higher safety buffer in strength in case of sudden pressure increases if the pressure control fails.

Scratch resistance

Less vulnerable by installation and treatment on construction site and long-term crack propagation resistance.

Reliability

Long term safety and problem-less running of gas application.

Main application benefits
of PE‑Xb compared to PE‑RT

Aging resistance

  • The lifetime of PE-Xb pipe is multiplied to PE-RT pipes even with high chlorinated water

High flexibility

  • Latest product developments assure PE-Xb material reaches similar level of flexibility as PE-RT

Impact resistance

  • PE-Xb pipes are less vulnerable compared to PE-RT pipes when installed and treated at a construction site.

Higher burst pressure

  • PE-Xb can withhold higher pressure than PE-RT

Excellent sufrace finishing

  • Assures smooth fluid or gas flow inside PE-Xb pipe

Chemical resistance

  • Increased lifetime even with high chlorinated water

Quality versus price

  • PE-Xb is the most typical and the most affordable type of plastic tubing used worldwide

Easy installation

  • PEX is more flexible than other plastics and reduces your need for fittings
  • More than 70% of installers worldwide rely on PEX based on their experience with its excellent performance
  • Regardless all the advantages that PEX brings to its users it is easy to install

Overall production advantage

  • High extrusion speed on standard lines and no special equipment is needed for PE-Xb

Higher pressure and fracture resistance of PE‑Xb compared to PE-RT is proved by ISO 15875 standard.
PE-RT material meets only ISO 15874 with lower requirements for pressure and fracture resistance

PE‑Xb pipes fully meet all requirements for drinking water applications
and all relevant regulations and standards concerning heating and gas applications.
