Aquatherm’s polypropylene-random piping systems feature a new PEX compression adapter made of PP-R and lead-free brass. This adapter allows installers to easily transition between Aquatherm and PEX in potable water and radiant systems. It is entirely zero-lead and manufactured to ASTM F1960. A new male-end design allows installers to fuse directly into fusion outlets. It is available in 1/2”, 3/4” and 1” diameters and uses an expander ring and clamp connection. The PP-R portion of the adapter is made from the same material as Green Pipe and is attached to the zero-lead brass portion.
