Description
Note: Uponor hePEX tubing, traditionally used in radiant heating applications, became certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 61 for potable water in December 2012. Please read the Approvals document for more information.

Uponor hePEX is heat-transfer tubing with an EVOH oxygen diffusion barrier. The oxygen diffusion barrier meets the requirements of the German DIN Standard 4726.
Uponor hePEX is compatible with both Uponor's ProPEX fitting connections and QS-style fittings.
Uponor hePEX is manufactured to ASTM F876 and F877, and is designed for closed-loop hydronic heating applications. Uponor hePEX tubing is rated and listed by the Hydrostatic Stress Board of PPI at: 200 degrees F at 80 psi, 180 degrees F at 100 psi and 73.4 degrees F at 160 psi.
Note 1: 5/16" hePEX tubing is used for the Uponor Quik Trak system.
