PB-1 piping material

High performance piping system with an exceptional long lifetime.

Polybutylene heating cooling piping systems

Polybutene-1 (PB-1) has been successfully used in pipe applications for over 50 years. PB-1 piping systems have demonstrated their exceptional long-life performance in demanding industrial, large-scale and domestic applications.


Polybutene-1 is your fast & flexible friend!

PB-1 is the flexible and durable plastic pipe for multi-purpose building and industrial applications.

PB-1 (Polybutene-1) is the most technically advanced material for hot and cold water pressurised piping systems. The main advantages of PB-1 are:

  • Fast installation: flexible, lightweight, one-material piping and fitting system
  • Cost saving: long lifetime, limited maintenance, less material needed due to reduced wall thickness
  • High performance: extremely heat and pressure resistance
  • Most sustainable solution: energy savings and less material waste during production, superior energy efficiency, minimal installation waste, end of life recycling
  • Proven technology: sucesfully used in pipe applications in Europe for over 50 years, installations from 70's still operating efficiently today
