Pipe Wirsbo-inPEX, thanks to its exceptional hygiene, have been widely used in medicine (installation dialysis blood).
Wirsbo-PEX pipes are used for the device hot-and drinking-water supply. The material is resistant to high temperatures up to +95 ° C (temporarily up to +110 ° C) at the maximum working pressure of 10 bar or 6 bar.
Wirsbo-PEX pipes shipped from the factory – manufacturer of coil length of 50 and 100 meters, packaged in boxes (diameter of pipes 16, 20 and 25 mm) or wrapped in plastic wrap in black, or by special order, in direct whips six meters in length, packed boxed. PEX tubing should be stored in places protected from direct sunlight. Polyethylene, like any other polymer, is affected by ultraviolet rays, which lead to the rapid aging of the material and reduce its mechanical and strength characteristics. Keep the tubes should be in their original packaging.
Pipe Uponor Wirsbo PEX intended for use in floor pex radiant heating systems. They have increased flexibility. PEX Pipe Uponor Wirsbo-PEX marked double green stripe and are equipped with a barrier against oxygen diffusion. They are designed to operate at maximum operating temperature of 60 ° C and a pressure of 6 bar.
The barrier, which is located outside of trumpet Uponor Wirsbo-pe PEX, made of a film PVAL (polyvinyl hydroxide) and the outside is covered with a protective layer of PEX (method Sioplas), which is designed to protect the pipe from mechanical damage during installation, for example, when the tube is attached to the wire hoop or during laying cement.
Pipe Uponor Wirsbo PEX supplied in coils in cartons.
Standard sizes of PEX pipe Uponor Wirsbo-peREH presented on the Ukrainian market, are manufactured with a diameter 20h2, 0 mm:

The last 70 years, a Swedish company, Wirsbo, existing almost 4 centuries, engaged in the production of PEX pipe, specifically by improving the materials for their manufacture: Steel – in 1934, PE – 1955, metal PEX – in 1968 and poperechnosshity polyethylene PEX-A – 1972. PEX-A had excellent physical-chemical and mechanical parameters, so even the first hire made from the pipe material was a resounding success. This was an event that changed the status of the company and revolutionize the market of building communications. In 1973 in Germany was organized by Wirsbo PEX Gmbh, which has become the first company producing products outside of Sweden. Currently, Wirsbo has 5 factories that are located in Sweden, Germany, USA, Spain, Canada and released annually 77 million meters of PEX pipe, which are realized in 55 countries worldwide.
