Each pipe connection contains two peroxide-cured EPDM o-rings which ensure a perfect seal between the pipe and the fitting. The o-rings are certified for sanitary use according to the main European regulations, thus allowing the installation of the system in drinking water applications. The o-rings must be lubricated with water or silicone-based oils; while the use of mineral-based oils or greases is forbidden.
IVAR•PUSH fittings are available in different configurations (straight, angle, "tee") for 16/2, 20/2, 26/3, 32/3 multilayer pipe. Threaded figures feature G ½'', G ¾'' or G 1'' connections.
