    ::  PVC coated copper tubes

    For more aggressive environments, copper tube with a PVC sheath may be an effective method of protection against attack.

    Copper tubes coated with polyvinylchloride (PVC) are intended for water, heating, gas, air, fluid and other installations.

    Material used to coat copper tubes is polyvinylchloride (PVC) of the following characteristics:

    • Density: 1400 - 1500 kg/m³
    • Elongation: 207 %
    • Breaking strength: 14 N/mm 2
    • Maximum working temperature: +95°C
    • Minimum bending temperature: -10°C


    The PVC is tightly extruded onto the tube and is available in black and white colors with blue or red print according to customer requirements.

     Advantages of PVC-coated copper tubes are: major reduction of heat loss, prevention of burns in users, PVC coating protects copper tubes from aggressive environments and prolongs its service life. Plastic insulation layer is elastic and enables bending and all other working operations during installation.
