Looking for more flex with your PEX? Well, have we got some news for you! Here at Tradelink, we’ve recently introduced a new cross-linked polyethylene pipe, PEX-A to our exclusive TradePex system. TradePex is the most complete and advanced PEX system on the market, combining superior durability and exceptional fit-out versatility across both water and gas installations.
The new TradePex PEX-A pipe for water is a cross-linked, polyethylene (PE) pipe that is extremely durable – even at short-term temperatures of up to 95 degrees Celsius – and has a high tolerance to wear and corrosion.
Tradelink’s General Manager Merchandise, Steve Lewis, said that PEX-A is a very flexible pipe that is easy to work with and provides fast and flexible installation.
“PEX-A is the most flexible of all PEX tubing types and has little to no coil memory – meaning that once straightened it won’t return to the original shape of coil,” he said.
“Our TradePex PEX-A pipe is cross-linked to a minimum of 82%, giving plumbers a pipe that is flexible and easy to work with.
“With the addition of our new PEX-A water pipe, TradePex has options – both crimp and sleeve – to suit all plumbers.”
The TradePex system offers premium temperature/pressure ratings. All fittings are made from high quality, dezincification resistant brass (no plastic), and with just one fitting for both gas and water, sleeve or crimp, the TradePex system gives you a key advantage over other systems on the market.
To ensure that PEX-A pipe meets Australian manufacturing standards, the factory where PEX-A is produced follows strict quality control and quality assurance processes, overseen by Tradelink. The product is tested continuously from raw material through to extrusion and coiling to ensure it meets Australian Standards for tolerance, cross-linking degree and pressure testing, with a 100% success rate.
Certified as compliant to relevant Australian Standards by ApprovalMark International, covered by a 25-year manufacturer’s warranty, and backed by multinational company, Fletcher Building, plumbers really do have the best PEX when they choose TradePex!
