The specific marketing claim by Uponor that has been reviewed by ICC-ES technical experts is that in-slab installation of its pre-sleeved AquaPEX piping has less overall energy consumption (heat and pressure losses) than overhead insulated copper pipe under optimized conditions. Results have demonstrably verified that Uponor’s claim is accurate.
“By obtaining a marketing claim verification report, we can assure the market that we aren’t just making an unsubstantiated statement. We are letting them know real information that they can base their design and build decisions on,” said Haemi Pollett, Uponor’s Code Manager. “Having this report issued by the trusted source for product evaluation and listings means our claims have been verified by the gold standard in the industry, ICC-ES.”
Uponor’s AquaPEX product also has been evaluated and listed by ICC-ES to ASTM F876 Standard Specification for Crosslinked Polyethylene (PEX) Tubing and CSA B137.5 Cross-Linked Polyethylene (PEX) Tubing Systems for Pressure Applications (see listing PMG-1006) under the industry leading ICC-ES PMG Listing Program that verifies compliance with applicable codes and standards.
