PERT II is a high performance hexane-based compound primarily intended for hot(80°C) & cold water pipe as well as demanding industrial pipe applications.
a PE-RT Type II classification;
a superior resistance to slow crack growth coupled with a MRS of 10 MPa, ensuring safe and durable pipe systems operation;
a broad bimodal molecular weight distribution offering outstanding processing properties from small bore pipes to large diameter pipes extrusion, for both mono- and multilayer applications;
an optimized formulation of additives providing excellent long-term stability in service at elevated temperatures.
It combines excellent processability with elevated temperature performance and long term stability.
Typical applications include hot & cold water domestic plumbing, underfloor heating, radiator connections, infrastructure surface heating, cooling and deicing as well as industrial applications e.g. in corrosive environments.
It offers outstanding processing properties. Small bore mono- and multi-layer pipes can be produced at high speed while maintaining an excellent gauge control. Conversely, high throughput extrusion of large diameter industrial pipes is made possible on standard HDPE equipment thanks to the low sag behavior of the resin.
Similar to PE material, it’s suitable for both butt fusion, socket fusion & electrofusion.
Smart Joint offers a complete range of fittings, pipes and fusion machines to complete the PERT II network.
