Flow-optimised press connector system with press connectors made of silicon bronze and multi-layer pipes and solid plastic pipes. Multi-layer pipe, dimensionally stable, oxygen-proof, colour: grey. Press connectors with PPSU support body to ensure the leak tightness and mechanical strength of the connection. Safe and fast connection without widening or calibration of the pipe ends through O-ring-free press technology in all pipe dimensions. For protection pipes are equipped with pipe plugs. solid plastic pipe, flexible Suitable for concealed and pre-wall installations of riser pipes and floor installations.

Press connector with SC‑Contur Inadvertently unpressed connections become visibly leaky when the system is filled. Viega guarantees the detection of unpressed connections in the following pressure ranges: min. water pressure: 0.1 MPa / 1 bar / 14.5 PSI max. water pressure: 0.65 MPa / 6.5 bar / 94.3 PSI min. air pressure: 22 hPa / 22 mbar / 0.3 PSI max. air pressure: 0.3 MPa / 3 bar / 43.5 PSI
Tools The functional safety of Viega press connector systems depends primarily on the faultless condition of the press tools used. For the manufacture of press connections, Viega recommends the use of Viega press tools. Viega press tools have to be regularly maintained by authorised service partners.
Areas of application solid plastic pipe Potable water
Areas of application multi-layer pipe Potable water Heating systems Rainwater Compressed air systems
Note The press connector system Raxofix is suitable for the creation of potable water installations according to DIN 1988‑200 and EN 806‑2 in consideration of the selection of material in accordance with DIN EN 12502‑1 and according to the evaluation basis for metallic materials in contact with potable water of the Umweltbundesamt (UBA) (Federal Environment Agency). When used for other areas of use and when in doubt about the right selection of material, please contact Viega. Detailed information about applications, restrictions and national standards and directives can be found in the product information, either printed or on the Viega website.
