THE EXPERT IN FUSION JOINTS
The Sansico PE-RT Socket Fusion fittings system specifically designed for reliable, high performance jointing and long service life for hot water piping system. The benefits of the PE-RT system over other systems are non-toxicity, corrosion resistance, high flow capacity and long-life span. PE-RT, besides HDPE, has superior properties as compared to other plastic materials in relation to water hammer problems. We have a comprehensive range of fittings that come in sizes from 20mm to 32mm and are PN20 rated. Our jointing system has been proven to be the most efficient and reliable socket fusion system as it eliminates the potential operator error. Our PE-RT pipes & fittings comply to SIRIM ISO 22391-2, ISO 22391-3, MS 1058-2 & MS 1058-3; and are SPAN certified. Thus, we assure you of more than 20 years life span for your potable water needs.
PERT type materials have been used successfully in domestic hot and cold water piping systems for more than 20 years. PERT can also compete with high-end engineering plastics, offering significant cost savings.
