Recognising the issues surrounding metal press connections, Uponor have developed an alternative way to create a secure joint that can be easily be reviewed following an installation. We call it our Multi-Layer Composite Pipe (MLCP) system
, which comes equipped with a joint inspection window for peace of mind (see above).
As an additional point of security, the foil surrounding the fittings will peel away once a secure joint has been made. So there is no need to leave the site in two minds.
The MLCP system offers the best of both worlds, as the plastic outer core ensures greater flexibility in tight installation spots and the aluminium core provides a form stable base.
