Tectite Advance works in the same way as other push-fit fittings and is jointed in seconds by simply pushing the tube and fitting together. Push-fit has grown in popularity, by offering a number of advantages over other more traditional jointing techniques. No solvents, adhesives or tools are needed, and a hot works permit is not required. Advance fittings are easy to use and the resultant joint provides a clean installation.
Tectite Advance has been designed for use as a complete system in conjunction with galvanised and plastic coated XPress Carbon steel System tube and when used in this way, benefits from a 10-year system guarantee. Advance is non-demountable, which results in an increased mechanical strength of completed joints, yet it also manages to be lighter than screwed steel - an important consideration in a demanding marketplace.
Tectite Advance fittings and carbon steel system tube is available in sizes from 15mm to 54mm and is offered in 13 different patterns. This adds up to over 109 products in the range, with a fitting available to suit most types of installation. The 54mm size offers the enhanced performance needed for todays multi-million pound projects, and with working pressure and temperature ratings of up to 10 bar at 114°C, Advance has the qualities and performance to provide a complete system solution.
The Tectite family of products has evolved into a range that can offer heat-free technologies for any situation, but Advance carbon steel is now taking push-fit fittings to a whole new dimension. With obvious benefits for professional installers, Tectite Advance is set to become the next generation in push-fit systems..
