Watts Radiant’s RadiantPERT is a new line of polyethylene-raised temperature tubing for use in hydronic heating, cooling, snow-melting and distribution applications. The RadiantPERT tubing includes an oxygen barrier, features ratings up to 180°F (82°C) at 80 psi and offers greater flexibility than other tubing products. RadiantPERT is manufactured with Dowlex 2344, which offers high strength, high temperature resistance and long life without cross-linking.
RadiantPERT tubing is constructed with five layers. The core and outermost layer are PE-RT. Sandwiched in the middle is an integral ethylene vinyl alcohol DIN Standard 02 barrier that limits oxygen diffusion through the walls of the tubing to less than 0.10/m3/day at 104°F (40°C) water temperature. All RadiantPERT tubing is backed by a comprehensive 25-year warranty from Watts Radiant.
