viega_usaMade from a high performance polymer, the Viega PEX Press system saves on installation time. This new innovative system, combined with Viega’s flexible PEX tubing, requires fewer connections than traditional systems. With more than 112 years of experience producing quality plumbing systems, trust Viega for all your light commercial needs.

Viega introduced the new PEX Press system, made in the USA, in the beginning of 2012 suitable for potable water and radiant applications in residential and light commercial projects. It is the only system on the market molded from 100% Radel-R®, a superior plastic material.

These fittings feature corrosion resistance and compliance with Zero Lead™ requirements, as well as NSF approval. Viega’s Smart Connect feature available only from Viega enables installers to easily spot unpressed connections during pressure testing by allowing water to flow past the fitting on a missed connection.

The system uses the same hand and power tools as the bronze PEX Press system to join PEX tubing using plastic fittings without O-rings, glues, cements or lubricants. The hand tools do not require calibration so installers can trust each connection is secure every time.

Viega PEX Press fittings are factory assembled with attached stainless steel sleeves with three view holes which helps installers insert tubing correctly ensuring proper installation. Color-coded tool locator rings assure proper alignment of the press tool. The Viega PEX Press system can be used with all Viega tubing, including: ViegaPEX™, ViegaPEX Ultra, ViegaPEX Barrier and Viega FostaPEX®.

Fittings are available in sizes 3/8’’ to 2’’, and include couplings, elbows, tees, lav adapters and closet adapters. The system offers metallic threaded and solder transition adapters for joining PEX tubing with other materials.
