Gerpex MLCP is the optimum solution for modern building projects, offering all of the advantages of both plastic and metal pipes combined with excellent value for money and peace of mind. Gerpex can be used in a wide range of applications including both hot and cold water manifold systems and heating, chilled water and compressed air. The pipe is available in a range of sizes from 16-63mm making it ideal for both domestic and commercial applications. Gerpex MLCP is made of composite material through a technologically advanced process in which an inner layer of cross linked PE-Xb (polyethylene) pipe is bonded to a butt-welded aluminium core with outer layer of PE-Xb (up to 32mm) or PE-HD (from 40 up to 63mm). The inner aluminium layer provides rigidity, form retention, and a solid oxygen barrier to prolong the life of heating system components such as heat exchangers, pumps and radiators.
Gerpex Press Fittings have been developed to be used with Multi-Layer Composite Pipe as a clean, simple and more efficient alternative to traditional jointing methods such as soldered copper and threaded stainless fittings. With a definite press of each fitting the system will also give more confidence to the installer, developer and end user than plastic push fittings. The brass bodied fittings with double O-ring technology and combined sight hole, dialectric ring and jaw alignment collar help to ensure that the pipe is fully inserted and pressed correctly, every time.
