PEX Press Adapters Enhance Versatility

With plumbing professionals looking for flameless solutions that make hybrid PEX-to-copper connections fast and easy, Uponor North America is answering the call with the launch of its industry-first ProPEX copper press adapters in sizes from ½" to 3".

Uponor Pro SquadManufactured from high-quality, lead-free brass to meet all local and national potable-plumbing codes, these innovative press adapters reduce overall project timeline by an average of 71 percent (compared to sweat), don’t require new tools or processes, and are backed by Uponor’s 25-year transferable limited warranty.

This new innovation is available now throughout the U.S. and Canada – and it’s the only copper press adapter available in 2½" and 3" sizes. It also incorporates a patented design for securely fastening the pipe and fitting together, eliminating the need for a stainless-steel ring.

“As PEX piping becomes more prevalent in commercial plumbing projects, design and installation professionals told us they needed a solution to quickly and confidently connect hybrid plumbing and hydronic piping systems,” says Doug Fulton, sr. director, Corporate Strategy and Segment Marketing at Uponor. “We’re excited to not only introduce our latest innovation, but also solve a key pain point for commercial installers.”
