Watts RadiantPERT Tubing

RadiantPERT | Polyethylene Raised Temperature Tubing with Oxygen Barrier

What Is Radiant PERT?
PE-RT stands for Polyethylene Raised Temperature. RadiantPERT is manufactured with DowlexTM 2344, which offers high strength, high temperature resistance, and long life without crosslinking. PE-RT tubing is constructed with five layers of material. The core and outermost layer are PE-RT, and sandwiched in the middle is an integral ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH) oxygen barrier. At the same time the five-layer tubing  is more flexible and easier to install than other piping materials used in hydronic radiant heating, cooling, snow melting, and distribution piping applications. PE-RT has been used successfully for nearly 30 years in radiant heating applications.

5 layer RadiantPERT offers several benefits over other piping materials:
  • Greater flexibility
  • The outer PE-RT layer protects the oxygen barrier from job-site abuse and moisture
  • Easier to pull through joists and confined spaces
  • Recyclable material
  • Proven Performance
  • 30 year track record
  • Rated to 180 °F at 100 psi
You may use RadiantPERT as distribution piping for:
  • Radiant heating/cooling systems
  • Snow melting systems
  • Radiators
  • Baseboard
  • Fan coils or kickspace heaters

For hydronic heating, cooling, snow melting and distribution piping

RadiantPERT is certified to ASTM F2623 for Polyethylene of Raised Temperature (PE-RT) SDR 9 Tubing by NSF. This standard includes requirements and testing methods for materials, workmanship, dimensions, sustained hydrostatic pressure strength, and bend strength.
  • RadiantPERT meets or exceeds these standards.
  • RadiantPERT is tested and listed to NSF-14 (rfh).
  • Maximum operating temperature and pressure:
     - 200 psi at 73° F
     - 100 psi at 180° F
  • PPI TR-4 listing at 73° F and 180° F
  • RadiantPERT is certified to the Uniform Mechanical Code.
