Plastic pipes with “memory effect”
Thanks to the high dregree of cross-linking of molecules, Uponor PE-Xa pipes have a thermal memory. Once the PE-Xa pipe is widened by means of a suitable Uponor tool, it will return to its original shape within a short period of time.
We use this material property in Uponor Q&E jointing technique where the pipe material turns into sealing material. It connects positively and by frictional contact to the Uponor Q&E fitting. This hundred percent safe connection of fitting and pipe is achieved within seconds and without any O ring seals. And the best part about it - it's that simple that anyone can do it!
