What is the OD of 1/2 PEX pipe?

Dimensional data and specifications PEX Tubing size (CTS/Nominal) Outside Diameter (OD) Volume gal/100ft 1/2″ 0.625″ 0.92 5/8″ 0.750″ 1.34 3/4″ 0.875″ 1.83 1″ 1.125″ 3.03 Click to see full answer. People also ask, are there different grades of PEX pipe?There are three different types of PEX tubing: PEX-a, PEX-b and PEX-c. Uponor manufactures PEX-a tubing, which is considered the superior type of PEX in the industry because the crosslinking is done during the manufacturing process when polyethylene is in its amorphic state (above the crystalline melting point).Subsequently, question is, what is PEX A and PEX B? Flexibility – PEX-A is the most flexible, allowing for it to be fastened by cold expansion, which allows the end to be fluted prior to inserting the fitting. PEX B is not expandable and you should never expand the end of a PEX-B pipe. Kink-Resistance – PEX-A has the greatest resistance, PEX-B the lowest. Also know, what do the different colors of PEX pipe mean? The Colors of PEX Tubing. It is available in red, blue, and white to make classification of water lines easier (red for hot, blue for cold, white for supply lines or single-color systems). The color of PEX does not change any of the tubing’s ratings.What is PEX pipe pressure rating?ASTM specifications F877 for PEX tubing is a Pressure @ Temperature rating. Most PEX tubing will be rated for: 160 psi at 73°F. 100 psi at 180°F. 80 psi at 200°F.
