DOWLEX™ 2344 PE-RT Resin provides an excellent option for multi-layer pipes used in radiant floor heating applications. When used in conjunction with aluminum composites or ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH) polymers for three- or five-layer pipes, DOWLEX™ 2344 offers:

  • Excellent toughness and flexibility (even at low temperatures) for durable, virtually leak-free performance
  • Long-term hydrostatic strength at high temperatures without the need for cross-linking.
    • Helps increase flexibility and improve processing speeds, resulting in potential production and installation savings
  • Excellent surface smoothness for improved flow with reduced pressure loss and deposit formation
  • Scaling and corrosion resistance for added protection of aluminum or EVOH layers
  • Potential real-time installation savings

DOWLEX™ 2344 PE-RT Resin has a Plastics Pipe Institute (PPI) TR-4 listing of 630 psi HDB at 180°F (82°C) and fulfills the requirements for non-potable heating pipe applications according to ASTM F2623 and ISO 10508 for classes 1, 2, 4, and 5. In addition, equipment used to produce cross-linked Polyethylene (PEX) can be easily converted to produce pipe with DOWLEX™ 2344 PE-RT Resin.
