New Zealand's Plumbing System since 1980
Buteline pipe in New Zealand is extruded from premium grade Polybutene-1 (PB-1), a non-hybrid material specifically developed for use with hot and cold potable water.
Buteline fittings are integrally strong and durable, moulded from a high tensile premium grade custom thermoplastic and pre-fitted with annealed aluminium sleeves.

Use the gauge provided with ProClamp Tools, QuickClamp Tools & 28mm Clamp Tools to check that the full clamp force has been achieved. It is important that the gauge passes over the clamp ring. If necessary, take corrective action by re-adjusting the tool and re-clamping.
Service your clamp tool by cleaning and oiling moving parts regularly (WD40 is an ideal cleaner/lubricant). Watch this demo on how to check your standard FR (non-adjustable) clamp tool.
