KiTEC Plumbing Pipe offers the cost benefits of traditional plumbing systems, without compromising the basic features of composite pipes, when used for plumbing, independently, as well as in combination with KiTEC Composite Pipes and fittings.
KiTEC Plumbing Pipes are manufactured as per internal standards and meet the requirements of BS 7291:Part I:1990, the specifications for Thermoplastic pipes and associated fittings for hot and cold water for domestic purposes and heating installations.
KiTEC Plumbing Pipes and associated crimp fittings are having pressure rating of 12.0 Kg/Cm2 at 23oC and 6.0 Kg/Cm2 at 65oC. KiTEC Plumbing Pipe can safely be used for 4 Kg/Cm2 pressure at 80oC working temperature.

KiTEC - Most versatile Pipe for Plumbing
Advantages for Homeowners
KiTEC’s inner and outer layers consist of polyethylene (PE). KiTEC is having, perhaps, the best chemical and corrosion resistance of any plastic used in the manufacture of plumbing pipes. The polyolefin family of plastics - PE included - is renowned for it’s toughness, long service life and resistance to deterioration in the most extreme environments. On the other hand, when metal or copper pipes are exposed to aggressive soil and water conditions, they are susceptible to corrosion and pitting.
KiTEC’s inner and outer layer of plastic is unaffected by corrosive soil or aggressive water. That’s why you’ll see KiTEC being used to re-pipe homes where metal pipes have failed prematurely.
Clean and Safe:
KiTEC plumbing system is designed to provide you with the cleanest drinking water possible. KiTEC’s clean, non-corroding plastic interior is resistant to deterioration in aggressive water conditions. You needn’t worry about odour, colour or taste problems arising because of the plumbing pipes in your home.
And given KiTEC’s built in permeation barrier, you have built in peace of mind that your buried water pipes will not be permeated by ground source contaminants.
Today’s demanding homeowners insist on quieter, more efficient plumbing systems. Noise often associated with water hammer in the pipes behind the walls is a distant memory.
That’s because KiTEC offers the strength of metal pipes without all the noise. KiTEC’s unique composite construction reduces water hammer pressure and the plastic layers reduce the noise. With KiTEC plumbing systems you’ll have no more shaking or rattling of metal pipes. It all adds up to a quieter home<
KiTEC’s smooth inner plastic wall permanently resists scaling and mineral build-up, keeping water flow constant year after year. Unlike metal pipes, you won’t see a reduction in flow area with KiTEC. That means homeowners can enjoy a constant water pressure throughout the house, throughout the years.
Advantages for Builders and Plumbing Agencies
Easy to Install and Less physical exertion:
No more sweating joints every few feet. KiTEC’s convenient, lightweight coils allow you to install a professional plumbing system quickly and efficiently. Installation crews are less fatigued and larger coils mean less wastage. Quick to join:
Need to make a bend? Go ahead. Need to snake pipe around an obstruction? There’s nothing stopping you. When the system calls for a fitting, you simply cut, bevel the pipe, connect with the end of the fitting and tighten the nut for secure, long-term connections. It’s really that fast and simple. You need just 25% of the time as compared to conventional GI pipes for completing the jointing and installation.
Go anywhere with KiTEC:
KiTEC can be installed in walls and ceilings or surface mounted. It can be supported horizontally or vertically on 8 foot centers because its stiffness and expansion rate is similar to copper’s. KiTEC can be encased in concrete or buried underground without additional protection because its tough outer plastic layer resists chemicals and corrosive activity. KiTEC’s aluminum core provides a 100% permeation barrier against ground source contaminants like fertilizer and pesticide.
KiTEC uses fewer fittings – almost one fourth the fittings used in conventional system. Fewer fitting joints means less chance of leakage and less liability.
It’s not only designed for better long term flow rates, the inner plastic layer is noncorroding and won’t pit, pinhole, or erode in aggressive water conditions. KiTEC is designed to provide years of trouble free performance in the toughest of conditions. other pipes just don’t compare.
Today, 8 of the top 11 homebuilders in the United States are using KiTEC on new housing developments. KiTEC is also being used to plumb thousands of residential, mid-rise and hi-rise buildings throughout Canada. In India, many of the reputed builders are proudly the use of KiTEC in their projects to the customers. Once you see it in action you’ll know why. You can bend it by hand and it keeps it shape. And there’s no need for pastes, solder, torches, solvent cements or special expansion tools. With KiTEC, you’ll reduce installation hassles on every project.
KiTEC is warehoused and distributed from many locations across India through an efficient distribution network.
