The ecoFIT polyethylene (PE) piping system (photo) provides chemical resistance, abrasion resistance and high impact strength, even at low temperatures. The ecoFIT product line consists of a complete range of system components, including valves and connections. Other performance characteristics include operating temperatures ranging from –58 to 140°F, low weight, ultravoilet (UV) radiation and weather resistance and high mechanical strength. The products are available in standard sizes in both inches (2 to 23 in.) and millimeters (20 to 250 mm). The impact resistance of ecoFIT components are particularly beneficial in applications where low temperatures would typically degrade or limit the physical properties of plastic materials. — GF Piping Systems, Irvine, Calif.
