The Difference Between The Types Of PEX Pipe

The difference between the types of pex pipe,PEX floor heating pipes and aluminum-plastic pipes are two common floor heating materials on the market. Although both are the main materials for floor heating, there are big differences in terms of material, performance, usage scenarios and price.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:


PEX floor heating pipe is a new type of plastic material, which is made of cross-linked polyethylene. PEX floor heating pipe has the characteristics of high temperature resistance, corrosion resistance, pressure resistance and good flexibility. This material has a long service li fe, is non-toxic and environmentally friendly, and is harmless to the human body. At present, PEX floor heating pipes have become the mainstream products in the floor heating market. It is suitable for different types of ground, such as cement floor, wooden floor , marble floor, etc., and is widely used in home, business and public places.

How to choose?

Aluminum-PLASTIC PIPE is a related. Al and Polyethylene. Aluminum-Plastic Pipe has the Advantages of Light Weight, Corross Resistance,, and good heat insulation performance. Compared with PEX floor heating pipes, aluminum-plastic pipes are cheaper and suitable for some low-cost projects.

The selection of PEX floor heating pipes and aluminum-plastic pipes depends on the specific situation. When purchasing materials, factors such as ground conditions, use environment, and project cost need to be considered. If the use environment is relatively harsh and requires a longer service life of the floor heating system, you can choose PEX floor heating pipes; if the environment is relatively simple and the cost is controlled within a certain range, you can choose aluminum-plastic pipes.

A good floor heating pipe should meet the following conditions:

High temperature resistance: Floor heating pipes are materials that must withstand high temperatures, so they must have high temperature resistance.

Corrosion resistance: Floor heating systems installed underground or in buildings will be corroded by groundwater and chemicals, so they must have strong corrosion resistance.

Pressure resistance: The floor heating system needs to withstand relatively high pressure during use, so the pressure bearing capacity of the floor heating pipe must also be strong.

Good flexibility: The shape of the floor heating pipe needs to be adjusted with the terrain changes, so flexibility is very important.

Non-toxic and environmentally friendly: The floor heating system is in close contact with people, and the materials must be non-toxic and environmentally friendly materials.

In short, the choice of PEX floor heating pipes and aluminum-plastic pipes needs to be determined according to specific conditions. A good floor heating pipe must have the characteristics of high temperature resistance, corrosion resistance, pressure resistance, good flexibility, and non- toxic environmental protection. During use, it is necessary to keep the floor heating system clean and hygienic, and regularly check whether the floor heating pipes are damaged or leaking to ensure the normal operation of the floor heating system.
