Asahi/America Introduces Asahitec(TM) PP-RCT Plumbing and HVAC Piping Systems
LAWRENCE, MA – Asahi/America, Inc., the leader in thermoplastic fluid flow technology, introduces Asahitec™ PP-RCT piping systems for plumbing and HVAC applications. Asahitec™ PP-RCT is the latest advancement in polypropylene polymers, and has a wide range of benefits including greater pressure capabilities at higher temperatures than conventional PP materials.
Asahitec™ is comprised of two systems: Climatec™ for hydronic heating applications, and Watertec™ for potable water. Pipe in both systems is manufactured with patented Fibercore™ technology, which minimizes expansion and contraction by up to 75 percent, in turn reducing installation costs by minimizing expansion loops and supports.
Fibercore™ PP-RCT pipe consists of three co-extruded layers that make one homogenous pipe. The middle layer is a mix of short fiberglass strands and PP-RCT, which is isolated by an inner and outer layer of solid PP-RCT.
Asahitec™ includes both molded socket fusion fittings (20mm – 125mm) and molded butt fusion fittings (160mm – 315mm), and molded large diameter fittings up to 630mm. Asahitec™ is NSF 14-pw certified for potable water applications, and features lead-free brass adapter fittings.
Asahitec™ is complemented by Asahi/America’s extensive welding equipment fleet and valve product line. Ideal Asahitec™ applications include potable water, HVAC, food and beverage grade water, and water distribution.
