Buteline pipe in Malaysia is made from two different materials – Polybutene-1 (PB-1) for hot and cold water applications, and Polyethylene (PE100) for cold water only.
Polyethylene is widely accepted as a cost-effective plumbing material for cold water applications and has been in service for over 50 years. It is tough with excellent chemical resistance and near-zero moisture absorption. (Please see Polyethylene Technical Information for more information).
Buteline Polyethylene pipe is manufactured to meet the exacting Malaysian Standards, as well as SIRIM and SPAN certification requirements.
