From high-velocity impact to aggressive internal abrasion, Aquatherm piping systems are built to keep working through the roughest abuse.
As a material, polypropylene is both rigid and slightly flexible, comparable to the bones in the human body. This property allows the Aquatherm piping systems to endure impact that can damage even metal pipe without cracking or breaking. In fact, conditional to circumstances, Aquatherm pipe is able to endure accidental freezing without failing or leaking. And unlike other rigid plastics, Aquatherm piping systems won't shatter if penetrated under pressure, making them an ideal choice for compressed air applications.
The heat fusion connections make the joints chemically identical to the pipe itself, meaning that vibrations and undue stress won't cause the joints to leak, fail, or come apart.
Pipes intended for use in a hot water application can come with Aquatherm's patented faser-composite technology. The faser-composite layer reduces the linear expansion of the pipe by over 75%, allowing it to stay rigid on its hangers even when operating at temperatures as high as 185 degrees Fahrenheit and extending the life cycle of the system considerably.
The inner surface of the Aquatherm pipe walls is extremely smooth, even at a molecular level, resulting in less friction and abrasion. Thinning walls and pinhole leaks are things of the past.
