PEX-AL-PEX multilayer pipe, known as MCLP pipe (multilayer composite pipe), consists five-layer' structure. The inner & outer layers are made by PEX-b material, the middle layer is aluminum core which is welded by butt laser welded method or overlap welded method. Between the PEX material & aluminum core, special adhesive is used.
SUNPLAST PEX-AL-PEX multilayer pipe combines the advantages of a metal and plastic pipe, the superior performance makes PEX-AL-PEX multilayer pipe to be the best choice for water plumbing & underfloor heating systems.
※ Flexible and easy to install
※ Good performance for high temperature
The PEX-AL-PEX multilayer pipe can be used at T-max. 95℃ for 50 years.
※ Oxygen barrier pipe
The aluminum core layer can reliably prevents oxygen/gases from permeating into the pipe, this will protect the brass parts from rusting
※ Health & suitable for drinkable water supply.
They are hygienically and neutral in material, even in case of high PH-value fluctuation of the tap water.
※ corrosion free
PEX-b is kind of inert material, it is stable against solvents and other chemicals

※ What is maximum length of the SUNPLAST Pipe without any joint?
A: SUNPLAST PEX-AL-PEX multilayer pipe can be provided with max. Length of 500m.
※ What’s the main difference between PEX-AL-PEX multilayer pipe & PPR pipe when used in hot water?
A: Both PEX-AL-PEX multilayer pipe & PPR pipe can be used at high temperature hot water for long time. The main difference are:
1.PEX-AL-PEX multilayer pipe is oxygen barrier pipe, PPR pipe is none-barrier pipe. The water in PEX-AL-PEX multilayer pipe will keep health for long time.
2.PEX-AL-PEX multilayer pipe can be packed in 50-500m length in roll, which means less fittings will be requested during the installation, so it is less cost than PPR pipes
3.PEX-AL-PEX multilayer pipe are connected by brass fittings, which is more easily installation than PPR pipe.
※ Can these multilayer pipes and fittings be used for Solar Water Heater?
A: Yes, SUNPLAST PEX-AL-PEX multilayer Pipes and fittings can be used for Solar Water Heater.
