More information on Copper and Pex press crimp systems
Press-connect joining of copper and copper alloy tube is fast, economical, and, most importantly, it requires no heat or open flame unlike soldering or brazing. The press-connect joining method (sometimes called press-fit) was patented in Europein the late 1950s and continues to be used successfully there. The method and associated fittings and tools were introduced in the United States in the late 1990s. Since then, there has been growing acceptance, and those using the method experience excellent results. The ease of use ensured that a few years later,Australia was joining the press revolution. Plumbers have been successfully crimping copper in Australia for over 10years.
Press-connect joining takes advantage of copper's excellent malleability and its proven increased strength when cold worked. The joints rely on the sealing capability of a special fitting that contains an elastomeric gasket or o-ring seal and the proper use of pressing tools and jaws. Several manufacturers offer full product lines of press-connect fittings, valves and specialty items. Our tool will crimp all watermarked copper press systems sold in Australia.

PEX (or crosslinked polyethylene) is part of a water supply piping system that has several advantages over metal pipe (copper, iron, lead) or rigid plastic pipe (PVC, CPVC, ABS) systems. It is flexible, resistant to scale and chlorine, doesn't corrode or develop pinholes, is faster to install than metal or rigid plastic, and has fewer connections and fittings.
PEX tubing is made from crosslinked HDPE (high density polyethylene) polymer. The HDPE is melted and continuously extruded into tube. The crosslinking of the HDPE is accomplished in one of three different methods.
PEX plumbing has been in use in Europe since about 1970, and was introduced in the U.S. around 1980. The use of PEX has been increasing ever since, replacing copper pipe in many applications, especially radiant heating systems installed in the slab under floors or walkways. Interest in PEX for hot and cold water plumbing has increased recently in the United States and Australia.
Our tool will crimp a variety of industry standard copper ring pex crimp systems. As an added bonus, the 16mm pex die will also crimp all 18mm Poly Bute (pb) water piping. So if you come across 18mm (1/2') Buteline or Profit in your work, you can also repair these. There is almost nothing this new tool cant do.
