Most homeowners never think about plumbing until it becomes a problem and most aren’t versed in plumbing language. But, they get a quick lesson when they hear “rusty copper.”
PEX Plumbing, or cross-linked polyethylene, which looks like basic plastic piping, is much more. It’s made of a series of crossed-link polymer bonds that allows it to last longer than both copper and CPVC plumbing. It’s been around for more twenty-five years, but, became an industry standard only within the last ten years.
PEX Plumbing is also easier to install. It requires fewer tools, is flexible, and doesn’t require the soldering or connecting pipes the other types of materials require. It has a higher freeze resistance, so it won’t burst as much. Moreover, it costs less – up to three times less than copper.
Ecomass is the innovative and technological groundbreaker in high density engineered thermoplastic composite materials, high density plastics, and high density polymers. Ecomass Compounds are completely nontoxic and can be used to replace lead and other traditional materials.
Thermoplastic composite materials, high density plastics, and high density polymers make parts lighter and less expensive and offer various performance benefits over conventional materials such as glass, copper, ceramics, aluminum, steel, zinc and lead. Many industries, such as plumbing and construction, are seeking lighter and stronger materials. “Heavy plastics,” high density materials, and high gravity compounds, as they’re all known, may sound complicated and sometimes conflicting, but that’s never the case. They always serve their goal and purpose, whether it’s to add weight to improve performance, add mass to specific locations, balance assemblies to increase service-life, dampen vibration to enhance the customer contact experience, or perform gamma ray shielding to improve safety. As well, Ecomass’ high-gravity compounds can also be used as a lead substitute and/or can also replace aluminum, steel, stainless steel, brass, bronze, copper, and tungsten in a variety of applications.
All Ecomass Compounds meet the EU RoHS Directive, are 100% lead free, do not contain any U.S. EPA toxic or hazardous materials, and comply with Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act.
