Uponor North America has extended its current pre-insulated cross-linked polyethylene (PEX) pipe offering to include insulation up to 2 inches thick to meet the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Engineers’ standard 90.1 energy code and the 2012 International Energy Conservation Code. The new offering includes Uponor AquaPEX pipe for potable plumbing applications as well as Wirsbo hePEX oxygen-barrier pipe for hydronic heating and cooling use. It is available in coil lengths of 50, 75 or 100 feet with manufactured seams in the insulation that run the entire length of the coil, eliminating the need for solvents, glues or tape during the installation process, the company says.
