Uponor Engineered Polymer Plumbing

Uponor Engineered Polymer Plumbing

Designed to outperform metal plumbing alternatives, Uponor’s engineered polymer (EP) is a high-performance, thermoplastic material that has superior mechanical, chemical and thermal properties which provide dimensional stability in demanding applications, including areas of high stress, heat and moisture.

Resistant to corrosion, pitting and scaling, Uponor EP products are designed for any plumbing — and even hydronic heating and cooling — application, whether residential or commercial.

Lead free
EP fittings are the ideal solution to lead-free requirements and are even approved for direct burial in soil as well as concrete slabs, making installation options endless.

Cost effective
Uponor EP is a more cost-effective option because it offers a stable material cost and is not subject to the high price fluctuations of metal.

25 Year warranty
Uponor backs its EP products with a 25-year limited warranty when used with Uponor AquaPEX® tubing and ProPEX® connections and installed by an Uponor-trained contractor.

Uponor offers an extensive line of EP products ranging in size from 3/8" to 3".

Uponor EP product offering

propex expansion tool

Uponor EP is made from polysulfone, modified polyphenylsulfone or polyphenylsulfone. These materials are part of a family of polymers that have been used successfully in the demanding environments of medical appliance, aerospace and plumbing for many years. In fact, lab tests prove Uponor’s 3" ProPEX EP Tee is able to withstand up to 4,000 lbs. of spreading force without failure.

The ProPEX advantage: One simple tool, no dry-fit concerns

Each EP product features Uponor’s unique ProPEX connection method. The ProPEX method capitalizes on the expansion properties of Uponor PEX tubing, which can expand and contract back to its original shape without compromising the tubing’s integrity. ProPEX connections only require one simple tool and eliminate the need for torches, glues, solvents and gauges. And because the tubing must first be expanded before a fitting can be inserted, it is impossible to dry fit the connection, so there is never a question if the fitting is completed correctly.

With millions of EP fittings in service in plumbing, heating and fire safety systems worldwide for more than a decade, ProPEX is the proven connection solution for any application.
