Uponor MLC pipe structureUponor Multi-layer Composite Pipe (Unipipe)
The pipe has an inner layer of Polyetheylene - Raised Temperature (PE-RT), a middle layer of overlapped welded aluminium and finally a further outer layer of PE-RT. The aluminium layer is an oxygen diffusion barrier, whilst also allowing the pipe to be flexible yet formstable. MLCP is available in a range of pipe diameters from 12mm to 32mm coils for domestic use.

Uponor PEX pipe structureUponor PEX Range (Wirsbo)
Uponor PEX pipe is 5-layer pipe with a chemically cross-linked polyethylene PEX base pipe for long-term strength and performance at high temperature. The pipe is coated with four layers, including an integral barrier layer to inhibit oxygen diffusion, an opaque layer to inhibit UV penetration, and a protective PEX white outer layer to give a tough and reliable construction.

Designed, to meet the requirements of BS7291 Class S, Uponors PEX pipe is available in 15mm, 22mm and 28mm dimensions.

Applications

Manifold Plumbing

MLCP Manifold Plumbing SystemUponor Multi-layer Composite Pipe (Unipipe)
One system has become the popular choice for many types of installations: Uponor’s multi-layer composite pipe. With 55 million metres, Our MLC pipe is the market leader in this segment of piping systems. The easy, safe and fast installation as well as the suitability of the pipe for all types of plumbing installations are the basis of our system. The wide range of fittings - the result of our own R&D - in various dimensions, made of plastic or metal, as press or compression version, completes the installation system.

Uponor Plumbing combines the unique benefits of it’s Multi-layer Composite pipe with a range of fittings and manifolds. The pipe has an inner layer of Polyetheylene - Raised Temperature (PE-RT), a middle layer of overlapped welded aluminium and finally a further outer layer of PE-RT. The aluminium layer is an oxygen diffusion barrier, whilst also allowing the pipe to be flexible yet formstable.

PEX Manifold Plumbing SystemUponor PEX Pipe (Wirsbo)
The basic principle of the Uponor manifold system is to provide joint free pipe runs from a centrally positioned manifold to each radiator valve or tap or water outlet. The system can be designed with one single pipe dimension from the manifold to the draw-off point, which simplifies design and installation work. With joints only at the manifold and the radiator/taps, the risk of leakage from joints is considerably reduced and there are no connections within the walls. Since also there are no other draw-off points on the same pipe, pressure and temperature variations are minimal when taps are turned on and off. Small pipe diameters and fewer fittings save on installation time and labour costs.

Our PEX pipe is 5-layer pipe with a chemically cross-linked polyethylene PEX base pipe for long-term strength and performance at high temperature. The pipe is coated with four layers, including an integral barrier layer to inhibit oxygen diffusion, an opaque layer to inhibit UV penetration, and a protective PEX outer layer to give a tough and reliable construction.

Designed, to meet the requirements of BS7291 Class S, Uponor’s PEX pipe is available in 15mm, 22mm and 28mm dimensions.

Conventional Plumbing

Uponor Multi-layer Composite Pipe (Unipipe)
Uponors MLC pipe range of plumbing products can be used for drinking water installations of all sizes. A range of special products is available for all applications in old and new buildings. An extensive range of connectors enables the system to be connected to all standard on-wall installation systems and fixtures.

The comprehensive range of products enables complete installation from the riser to the fixture with only one system. Installation with our MLC pipe is extremely economical and easy; all components are designed to fit perfectly. The dimensional stability of the pipe and low heat expansion make only a few fixing points necessary – a practical advantage for fast installation. A range of clever tools rounds off the MLC pipe system: from pipe cutters to bevelling tools through to pressing tools.

Uponor PEX Pipe (Wirsbo)
Uponor PEX pipe has its own unique fitting solution and both pipe and fittings are available in dimensions 15, 22 and 28mm. A PEX ring is fitted over the pipe, both the pipe and ring are slowly expanded and pushed onto a Uponor PEX fitting. The pipe and ring then shrink back to their original positions creating a seal between the pipe and fitting. Uponor PEX pipe is fully compatible with EN 1254 compression fittings in UK sizes offering complete choice and integration with other systems, simply insert the pipe support and make your connection. Uponor plumbing systems are developed and manufactured to meet all relevant national and international standards and are complemented by a range of specially designed fittings to meet the requirements of both specifier and installer.
