System Overview

Based on hydraulic engineering principles and backed by superior manufacturing standards worldwide, Buteline's innovative products provide dependable plumbing solutions that are time-proven.

Architects and specifiers are attracted by Buteline quality and security. The efficiency of installation appeals to tradesmen, and it is Buteline economics and reliability that are most important to end users' long-lasting peace of mind.

The Buteline Plumbing System is designed for hot and cold water reticulation using Polybutene-1 (PB-1) pipe and thermoplastic polymer fittings, or for cold water only using Polyethylene (PE) pipe and polymer fittings, utilising Buteline's proven and efficient clamping technique.

The Buteline Plumbing System has a proven performance record for over 35 years, and Buteline only selects materials which are specifically designed for their applications. Buteline always represents quality.

* Please note that 'Buteline' and 'Polybutene-1' ('Polybutylene') are not the same thing -- 'Buteline' refers to our brand of plumbing system (pipe, fittings, tools), 'Polybutene-1' is the name of the raw material from which plumbing pipe can be made.

 

Buteline Fittings

Buteline Fittings

Buteline fittings are integrally strong and durable, the polymer fittings are moulded from a high tensile premium grade custom thermoplastic and pre-fitted with annealed aluminium sleeves. Brass fittings are made from de-zincification resistant (DZR) material. These fittings, once jointed with Buteline Polybutene-1 pipe, form a unique and technically superior joint, guaranteed for 25 years.

Users will find the total concept much quicker and more economical than other available systems.

Buteline fittings are available from 10mm to 32mm.

Buteline Clamp Tools

Buteline Clamp Tools

Vital to the effectiveness of a plumbing system is the ability to have connections made securely. The way this is done with the Buteline Plumbing System is by inserting pipe into the fitting and clamping it.

Buteline clamp tools are robust, designed to perform up to a consistent high standard, and are easy to maintain (simply clean and lubricate moving parts regularly). All tools have been specifically engineered exclusively for the Buteline Plumbing System to ensure a simple, accurate, watertight joint every time. Our 'head' designs permit easy access and alignment.

A selection of different tools in varying sizes are available, some of which are pictured.
