Introducing PEX Slide Fittings In Brass And PPSU

PEX slide fittings are a very common fitting that are made of two materials: brass and PPSU. Introducing pex slide fittings in brass and ppsu,These two types of pipe fittings have their own advantages and disadvantages.IFAN factory 30+ years manufacture experience support color/size customization support free sample.Welcome to consult for catalog and free samples.This is our Facebook Website:

Brass PEX slide fittings Advantage:

Strong durability: Brass is a strong and durable metal that can withstand the wear and tear of long-term use and different pressures;

Anti-corrosion: Brass is not easy to rust, even if it is exposed to a humid environment, it is not easy to corrode;

High temperature resistance: Brass has a high melting point and can withstand higher temperatures;

Elegance: Brass has a rich color and texture, making it a graceful metal for high-end finishes.


The cost performance is not high: the price of brass PEX sliding joints is relatively high, which is not as economical as other pipe fitting materials;

Need maintenance: Although brass has good corrosion resistance, it also needs regular cleaning and maintenance during use. In addition, brass is heavier than light plastic PEX sliding joints, so it is more troublesome to install;

High thermal conductivity: Brass has good thermal conductivity. Before use, make sure that the pipes and joints will not be thermally enhanced.

PPSU material PEX slide fitting Advantage:

Lightweight and easy to install:

PPSU material PEX sliding joint is very light, much easier to install than brass and other metal PEX sliding joints;

Corrosion resistance:

PPSU material PEX sliding joints are not easy to rust in a humid environment, and will not suffer from corrosion;

Safe and reliable:

PPSU material PEX sliding joints are used with other plastic pipes with good joint gaps, which are easier to work than copper pipes. Plus, they are rated for pressure and temperature;

Low price:

Compared with brass PEX sliding joints, PPSU material PEX sliding joints are more economical and affordable.


Appropriate use is required in an environment of temperature and pressure: PPSU material PEX sliding joints need to work under appropriate pressure and temperature, and leakage may occur if the limit is exceeded. At the same time, the service life may be shortened by the influence of pressure and temperature;

Weak thermal conductivity: Compared with metals such as brass, PPSU material has weak thermal conductivity.

How to choose a suitable PEX sliding joint?

Choosing the right PEX slip joint depends on the specific application and budget. Brass PEX sliding joints are suitable for situations that need to withstand high pressure and high temperature for a long time; while PPSU material PEX sliding joints are suitable for situations below the rated pressure and temperature range, but will be lighter and more economical. When choosing a PEX sliding joint, other factors should also be considered, such as the environment and aesthetics of the pipeline construction, etc. In conclusion, choosing a suitable PEX sliding joint should balance various factors to complete the installation and construction of the pipeline in the best way.
