PROPERTIES AND SALIENT FEATURES

Malleable: The unique feature of KiTEC is its malleability. KiTEC is easily formed into curves, can be set by hand and require only bending springs when forming tight bends down to radius equivalent to 5 times the diameter of pipe. Unlike plastic plumbing pipes, KiTEC permanently holds whatever shape it is formed into and does not need additional brackets to retain the shape of bends or curves.

Non-Corrosive: KiTEC piping systems do not corrode. Will never pit or develop pin holes from aggressive water leading to premature failure.

Smooth Surface: No scale builds up to reduce flow. Soluble encrustants, such as calcium carbonate, do not readily precipitate onto the smooth walls of KiTEC pipes. In addition, there are no reduction in flow areas and flow coefficients as the pipes age.

Hygiene: KiTEC is hygienic, non-toxic, rust-free and eliminates growth of microorganisms. This avoids contamination of water. KiTEC pipes have passed all the tests of pipe for potable water in accordance with British Standard BS 6920 by the British Water Quality Centre.

Flame/Smoke Rating: KiTEC pipe has a Flame Spread of 5 and a Smoke Development of 5 as per ULC-S 102.2. The ratings meet most building code requirements allowing for the use of KiTEC in high-rise construction as well as in return air plenums and vertical shafts.

Permeation: KiTEC’s aluminum core acts as a permeation barrier against entry of contaminants and limits oxygen permeation to virtually zero. Permeation is the molecular transport of chemicals, from the soil surrounding the pipe, through the pipe wall and into the fluid being carried within. Permeation may have adverse effects on the piping system, the conveyed fluid or both. KiTEC is widely used for the transmission and distribution of potable water providing a second line of defence for the plumbing system.

UV Resistance and Opacity : KiTEC pipes do not have any effect of UV radiation when laid exposed. There is no light transmission through the wall of KiTEC pipe.
