Under its latest innovative program, the ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) issued Uponor a marketing claim verification report (ESV-1012) for a Pre-Sleeved AquaPEX product that is used in hot and cold water distribution. The report verifies that the claims made by Uponor in marketing this product are both accurate and complete.
ICC-ES technical experts reviewed Uponor’s marketing claim 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. The results 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 on which they can base their design and build decisions,” 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.”
Under the industry-leading ICC-ES PMG Listing Program that verifies compliance with applicable codes and standards, ICC-ES also evaluated and listed Uponor’s AquaPEX product 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).
