The Perfect Material for Plumbing and Heating Systems is Copper

Everyone is well aware that copper typically has a long lifespan and is quite productive and valuable. The mechanical strength and corrosion resistance of copper give it the potential to survive any form of physical harm and resist degradation from internal attack.

Lightweight – It is clear that copper tubes with a thin wall and a low weight are more comfortable to use when delivering exceptional operating pressure.

Since copper is malleable and excellently suited for forging, drawing, extrusion, and casting, it is relatively easy to manipulate during the manufacturing process. It is incredibly well suited for installation by mechanical, brazed, and soldered connections.

Copper has a natural inclination to be antimicrobial, which means it can prevent the growth of bacteria, fungi, algae, and other hazardous pathogens.

Recyclable – Copper trash can be recycled extremely well at the production stage and is recoverable in every way until the very end of a building’s life.

Mechanical Properties – Seamless copper tube to the specification EN 1057 is produced at Wednesbury’s Bilston factory and supplied in soft, half-hard and hard condition, offering a choice of mechanical properties to meet customer requirements. A softer tube provides an enhanced malleability yet the strength is very much low. The distinct kinds of characteristics are attained through a consciously controlled series of annealing and drawing cycles at the time of production. 

Environmental Standards – Wednesbury UK copper pipes dubai manufacture copper plumbing tube but they do it more efficiently. Along with huge investment of around $US100 million made in “”state of the art” energy effective facilities of production, they have significantly applied practices and systems in order to achieve waste reduction and lessen their effect on the atmosphere.  This resulted in the official authorization of the organization provided with Environmental Management Approval to ISO 14001:2004. This approval is not so easy to be found in any other manufacturer even if you go for serious hunt.

Mueller Protec and Protec 2000: plastic coated copper tube

Wednesbury has manufactured an amount of plastic-coated copper tubes to be used at the time when copper tube is about to get buried in a considerably aggressive atmosphere.  Building products like insulation materials and concrete can significantly possess chemicals that are potentially corrosive towards plain copper tube.   Thus it is essential to protect the copper tube once when it’s buried, in order to assure the longer existence of service.


Protec is the copper tube’s official brand name with ordinary polyethylene coating that has been forced out towards the outer part of copper tube. This coating is done to provide shield to copper from aggressive environments, along with that its color coded for service identification.

  • WHITE color denotes central heating
  • YELLOW OCHRE spots the gas services

Protec 2000

Protec 2000 is one popular brand name of copper tube coated with polyethylene; the inner region is castellated for providing air gaps that actually run the tube length. There are multiple applications in using Protec 2000, apart from taking the responsibility to safeguard copper tube from external corrosion, the air gaps of it create a thermal barrier in order to decrease the temperature of surface, condensation levels, transmitted noise coupled with lessening the heat loss while being buried.  The Protec 2000 is available only in white shade.
