SharkBite® PEX tubing is a cross-linked polyethylene tubing for a wide range of residential and commercial plumbing applications. Manufactured without an oxygen barrier for potable water systems (available in white, blue, and red) and with an oxygen barrier for radiant floor and hydronic heating applications (available in orange). The oxygen diffusion barrier applied to the exterior limits oxygen permeation through the tubing wall in hydronic heating applications which prevents corrosion of ferrous metal parts in the heating system. A repeating SharkBite® imprint pattern provides a visual aid to determine if the tube has been inserted all the way into the SharkBite® Push-Fit Fitting. This feature only works if the tubing is cut between the SharkBite® imprint pattern.
The SharkBite® tubing with and without oxygen barrier is approved for use in all model codes in the US and Canada for use in hydronic and potable water systems and is certified to the following standards:
Use for potable water distribution and other water systems. Available in straight lengths and coils in pipe sizes ranging from 1/4" through 1".
