Uponor Pipe Systems for Marine Applications

MLC Pipe System


The composite pipe from the pioneering specialist

With our five layer composite pipe, we have developed an advanced product that unites the advantages of a metal and plastic pipe offering product advantages that are second to none. The aluminium core prevents oxygen ingress, reduces heat-expansion and gives form-stability for easy and safe installation. For potable water connections, the Uponor MLCP press system is the perfect solution to meet nearly all requirements. The complete range of products allows for the entire installation from the riser to the tap, in a simple and economic manner.


Wave goodbye to welding and soldering, say hello to Uponor press fittings!

With our patented press system, fitting connections are made safe and quickly without the need for open flames. Inspection windows allow for a visual inspection of the fitting being properly inserted before pressing while the colored stop ring is showing you instantly which diameter you are pressing. Even more, the stop ring will only fall off automatically if the fitting is pressed correctly. And with our MLC composite press fittings, we even offer you an economy version of our standard fittings. With the profile insert made of PPSU, the MLC composite fitting is a lead-free and lightweight alternative.

Flexible Pipe Systems


Uponor Quick & Easy                                        Fast. Simple. Secure.

The unique and innovative fitting system from Uponor that makes use of the shrink-back effect for a quick and easy installation, which only works together with cross-linked PE-Xa pipes produced by Uponor. Quick & Easy has evolved over time, bringing you a system that is complete, flexible and secure – making it easy to install, cost-effective, safe and adaptable. Uponor offers a wide range of tools and accessories to help make your installation safe and trouble-free. As well as our unique new M12 and M18 expander tools, we offer a wide assortment of springs, cutters and bending tools for all your installation needs.


Plastic pipes with “memory effect”

Thanks to the high degree of cross-linking of molecules, Uponor PE-Xa pipes have a thermal memory. Once the PE-Xa pipe is widened by means of a suitable Uponor tool, it will return to its original shape within a short period of time. We use this material property in Uponor Q&E jointing technique where the pipe material turns into sealing material. It connects positively and by frictional contact to the Uponor Q&E fitting. This hundred percent safe connection of fitting and pipe is achieved within seconds and without any O ring seals. And the best part about it - it's that simple that anyone can do it!
