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.
Polybutene-1 is not a hybrid material and was specifically developed for use as a hot and cold water plumbing pipe material over 30 years ago. It is a proven solution for the conveyance of clean healthy drinking water.
With superior temperature and thermal capabilities compared to other materials, there is no need for lagging – it endures and continues to perform both in low and high temperature applications. The flexibility of Polybutene-1 pipe assists installers and eliminates water hammer noise. Polybutene-1 is also environmentally friendly as it is 100% recyclable. (Please see Polybutene-1 Technical Information for more information).
Buteline Polybutene-1 pipe can withstand high temperatures and pressures, is manufactured to meet the exacting Malaysian Standards and other international standards, as well as SIRIM and SPAN certification requirements.
The installation process for Buteline is very quick and simple, and always provides a visual indicator of joint completion: Simply cut, insert, clamp, complete!View installation guide. play_arrow
