- 1/2" by 300ft Roll of Pex Tubing (red)
- Oxygen Barrier (EVOH)
- In-Floor Heating Application
- ASTM F876, ASTM F877, CSA B137.5, and ANSI/NSF 14 Certified
- 25 Year Factory Warranty
1/2" PEX Tubing with Oxygen Barrier (EVOH) is used for residential and light commercial radiant heating applications. With the same properties as PEX non barrier pipes, EVOH PEX barrier pipe keeps oxygen and other elements from infiltrating and corrupting the key mechanical components in heating systems. Tubing is marked every 5ft with length, ASTM standards, approvals, certifications, pressure ratings and other technical information.
