PE-RT is to PEX what PEX was to copper 20 years ago. X-PERT S5® is the next evolution in polymer technology for hydronic heating.
Proven History: PE-RT pipes have been used in European markets for more than twenty years with exceptional results. Roth X-PERT S5® pipe is made with DOWLEX™ 2344 Polyethylene Copolymer Resin, which offers the traditional benefits of polyethylene resin along with excellent high temperature resistance. The result is the next generation of radiant heating pipe.
Roth X-PERT S5® pipe delivers excellent long-term hydrostatic design strength, without the need for cross-linking. This increases flexibility, resulting in potential installation savings. Roth X-PERT S5® also has excellent surface smoothness for improved flow properties and is produced using state of the art equipment.
The five-layer pipe consists of a layer of ethylene vinyl alcohol polymer (EVOH) sandwiched between two layers of Polyethylene Copolymer Resin and two layers of adhesive. This structure provides the outstanding long-term hydrostatic design strength demanded by hydronic heating applications. The outer layer of Roth X-PERT S5® also provides a protective shield for the oxygen barrier.This ensures that the radiant heating system has the best protection available against oxidation due to oxygen permeation of the piping system.
