The Buteline Plumbing System is designed for hot and cold water reticulation
using Polybutene-1 (PB-1) pipe, or for cold water only using Polyethylene
(PE) pipe. It is impor tant to note that while Buteline is one of the leading
brands that are known for their use of Polybutene-1 pipe, ‘Buteline’ is not the
same as ‘Polybutene-1’ - one is a brand, the other is a raw material.
Buteline always represents quality and we only select materials which are
specifically designed for their applications. Both Buteline PB-1 and PE systems
utilise a proven and efficient clamping technique, and are marked with our
copyrighted logo, engravings on our fittings and pipe mar kings at every
1 metre inter val (as pictured).
