Featured Everflow Product: PEX-A Flexible Plastic Piping Systems
PEXFLOW is Everflow’s Expansion Piping System. It includes a full line of fittings, valves, and accessories used for potable water distribution, radiant heating and cooling systems, fire sprinklers, hydronic piping, and pre-insulated piping. This type of tubing is far superior to PE-RT tubing because of its toughness, longevity, flexibility, and its thermal, elastic, and shape memory.
- Strength – PEX-A is the strongest PEX tubing. It undergoes a superior manufacturing process where the highest degree of crosslinking occurs while in an anamorphic state. This provides added strength and durability. It expands up to 3 times its diameter, minimizing potential damage from freezing.
- Flexibility – PEX-A is easier to work with than other PEX products because it is the most flexible, which reduces required fittings. It allows for easier installs by offering the tightest bend radius. It also offers the most kink resistance.
- Versatility – PEX-A tubing can be used with F1807 Crimp PEX Fittings and F1960 Expansion PEX Fittings. This enables the tubing to be used in multiple applications for various building and construction projects.
- Performance – Shape Memory enables PEX-A tubing to expand, creating super reliable ASTM F1960 expansion fitting connections. It also has higher burst strength and long-term pressure ratings.
Why use PEX-A over PE-RT?
Review the comparison table created by Everflow below to see how PEX-A and PE-RT compare.
Level of Crosslinking
Maximum Operating Temperature
Environmental Stress Crack (Resistance to Cracking)
High degree of crosslinking which provides toughness and longevity.
Excellent thermal memory which allows kink repairs. Passes ASTM F876 Hot Bend test
As high as 200°F (93°C)
PEX is required to withstand 720 hrs of 150 psig constant pressure with water at 210°F (99°C) before failure. Pexflow PEX-A surpasses the 720 hrs.
PEX is required to withstand 100 hrs before failure. Pexflow PEX-A is tested to withstand more than 1,000 hrs.
Kink repair is possible. Coils straighten with no effort, allowing for much easier installation. Minimizing need for straight runs of tubing that are dificult to transport.
More than 40 years of proven performance throughout North America.
None. PERT is simply an over-stabilized HDPE.
Kink repair is not possible due to poor or no thermal memory. ASTM Hot Bend test cannot be performed, since the pipes melt when heated with hot air.
Up to 180°F (82°C).
PERT is only required to withstand 48 hrs and cannot meet the same temperature / pressure ratings as PEX.
Unknown. PERT has no test method for proving this. Testing to the PEX standard shows that PERT failed after 10 hrs.
Kink repair is NOT possible. Less Flexible
Limited short term experience.
