Polidan® PEX materials are silane moisture cure crosslinkable polyethylene grades mainly used for pipes&fittings.
PEX can also be used for other applications requiring high or low working temperatures, and improved chemical and/or abrasion resistance.

Key Features

●      Improved resistance to oxidative aging 
●      Higher strength at elevated temperature 
●      Better chemical and chlorine resistance 
●      Higher heat resistance 
●      No-hydrolysis 
●      Improved low-temperature impact strength 
●      Superior resistance to crack propagation 
●      Better abrasion resistance

Performance

Polidan® PEX can be used where high or low working temperature, and improved chemical and abrasion resistance are required. All grades are ready-to-use on standard extrusion or injection molding lines.

Applications

Building & Construction

Pipes and Plumbing components 
Polidan® PEX is suitable for the production of pipes and fittings for Hot and Cold water plumbing system with improved pressure (up to MRS12.5) and chemical resistance compare to conventional materials. PEX is approved for indoor gas transportation according to the standard ISO 17484-1/2, thanks to the very low gas permeability and superior mechanical resistance.

Domestic appliance 
Polidan PEX is used in hoses and molded parts for domestic appliance application, when high water-fluids temperature and chemical resistance is involved. Polidan PEX flexible grades are also drinking water approved. 
Flexible Hoses
Special Polidan PEX grades have been developed to substitute EPDM, polyolefins, silicone or PVC in pressure-braided flexible hoses or low pressure shower hoses thanks to the better micro-biological growth performance.

Oil & Gas

Lining, Umbilical and Composite Pressure Pipes 
The Polidan® PEX System provides high temperature resistance in chemical environment, No-hydrolysis along with excellent long term strength, ESCR, notch and abrasion resistance.
Offshore & Onshore Distribution 
Pipes produced using Polidan® PEX meet safely stringent requirements for Oil & Gas applications.

Automotive Fuel Systems 

Optimal Pipes, Tubes and Hoses 
Polidan® PEX is used for small diameter pipes for fluids transport inside the vehicle allowing wide operating temperature ( -40°C up to 125°C), high ESCR, RCP and abrasion resistance.

Industrial-Chemical Processing

Pipes & Fittings
Polidan® PEX system allows pipes and fittings to meet safely stringent requirements in applications like the conveyance of chemical products and Oil and Gas transportation. Polidan PEX is suitable for the production of big diameter pipes.

Alternative Energy District, Geothermal and Solar heating Polidan Pex can be used for hot water transport applications, allowing high pressure resistance together with long-term performances at high temperatures (up to 95C), where traditional polyolefins are limited in performances.
