|Cross-linked Polyethylene (PEX or XLPE) is a medium- to high-density Polyethylene containing cross-link bonds introduced into the Polymer structure, changing the thermoplast into an Elastomer. The high-temperature properties of the Polymer are improved, its flow is reduced and its chemical resistance is enhanced. PEX is used in some potable-water plumbing systems because tubes made of the material can be expanded to fit over a metal nipple and it will slowly return to its original shape, forming a permanent, water-tight, connection.|
