The tubing is only compatible with Viega PEX Press fittings and features form stability to keep its shape after its bent, an exterior aluminum layer which acts as an oxygen barrier for heating applications and is color coded with a red or silver finish for easy identification of hot and cold lines.
“The key to what makes this solution so special is its ability to hold its shape compared to other PEX tubing,” said Paige Riddle, product manager, Viega. “Our Viega FostaPEX has been rigorously designed to withstand high temperatures and extreme pressure and water conditions while maintaining a superb level of flexibility and versatility.”
Viega FostaPEX is an excellent product for exposed runs in a basement or under slab. It is rated at 100 psi at 180 degrees Fahrenheit and 160 psi at 73 degrees Fahrenheit. Viega FostaPEX is listed to ASTM standards F876/877 and ANSI/NSF standards 14 and 61.
