RAKtherm Piping Systems Technologies
RAKtherm’s product portfolio of wide range of integrated piping systems is responsible for delivering technological developments and the research & development that leads to innovative pipe systems to build the most iconic projects in the world.
Our commitment to plastic conversion technology and innovation continues to be the core of our quality management systems. As the construction engineering become more complex and more technically demanding, our engineering expertise will be the pillar to the advancement of the MEP industry.
1. PPR Piping Systems
We are have carefully blended and formulated our own PP-R resins (polypropylene-random) which guarantee that we are only using the highest quality of PP-R granules in our piping systems. A random copolymer grade of PP-R was specially developed for engineering applications with certain stringent requirements.
The random combination of short and long hydrocarbon chains gives rigidity and flexibility resulting higher resistance to external damage for superior physical properties. Compression strength, elasticity, anti-corrosive and heat resistance properties are the factors which make it suitable for potable hot and cold water applications.
RAKtherm PPR systems are extensively used in food and medical industries owing to its harmless and safe properties. Proven to be non-toxic and stable chemically even at elevated temperatures.
RAKtherm PPR piping systems is manufactured in conformance to DIN 8077/8078 German standard.
PPR is the Perfect Solution
In accordance with its areas of application, RAKtherm piping systems is designed for continuous temperatures of 0°C to 90°C, and short-term peak temperatures of up to 100°C with a service life of 50 years. Therefore, RAKtherm is the perfect solution for all types of chilled and heating water networks.
RAKtherm PPR pipes is also very light in weight which is a big advantage for installation and handling and its fusion welding guarantees perfect seal therefore prevents leakage. Chemical components of PPR plastic pipe materials prevent from any bacterial growth which makes RAKtherm highly hygienic and non-toxic.
RAKtherm, a Healthy Choice and Environment Friendly
We believe that health is wealth; we never compromise the safety of our products. At RAKtherm, we produce products that are safe and harmless both for human’s health and environment.
PP-R is a material with excellent chemical resistance which does not react to most chemicals, with non-corrosive properties, proven to be physiologically and microbiologically harmless making it suitable for hot and cold water applications. All materials used in piping systems are 100% recyclable which can be used again in other plastic products, no nickels and chrome which can be found in metal fittings.
2. PEX Piping Systems
PEX refers to cross linked polyethylene (PE-X). It is a polymeric material formed by the chemical joining of individual polyethylene molecules in a process called “crosslinking”, because cross linking alters the performance of the original polyethylene polymer improving its’ properties. The primary reason for cross linking the polyethylene (PE) is to increase the physical properties and materials’ elevated temperature performance under load.
This results in a structure that does not soften when high temperature is applied, thus raising the thermal stability of the material under load, which greatly increases the environmental stress crack resistance, resistance to slow crack growth due to deterioration of the material under continuous temperature use, chemical resistance, toughness and abrasion resistance.

3. Anti-UV Piping Systems
Integrated with anti-UV Technology, Engineered for Higher Level of Piping Solutions
RAKtherm UV systems are integrated with special black anti-UV technology for higher resistance against UV rays intended for outdoor applications under direct sunlight. It is the safest and longest lasting piping solution for outside installation. The revolutionary black anti-UV component reduces expansion and contraction proven to be mechanically stable even under extreme temperatures of 5°C to 95°C at a service life of 50 years.
The creation of RAKtherm anti-UV fittings came up to provide a complete line up of piping solutions excellent for outdoor installations. RAKtherm is noted as one of the very first manufacturer of anti-UV fittings that has been registered in SKZ affirming it’s conformance to the highest standard of quality. RAKtherm being the leader and innovator, will now complete and represent the entire selection of anti-UV piping systems in the market; this will administer a full network of anti-UV pipeline solution under direct and exposed applications.
4. Reinforced Piping Systems
RAKtherm Reinforced Stabi (RRS System)
The main function is to stabilize the pipes to preserve its quality. RAKtherm Reinforced Stabi Pipes are manufactured from special component of PPR material reinforced with aluminum layer for reduced linear expansion similar to metal pipes for greater strength and better heat resistance. Highly efficient with smooth interior walls that reduces the head loss for increased higher flow rates.
The inner part is covered with aluminum; outer layer is coated with anti-creep layer; the outer layer is coated with PPR as mechanical protection, combined with hot-melt glue between the layers. All these provide better anti-creep properties, greater strength, better shock resistance, and good stability. It can be easily detected with metal detector even when buried under ground. With proven high resilience performance even at the most extreme conditions, making it suitable for hot and cold water applications in residential, commercial, and industrial facilities.
RAKtherm Reinforced Stabi with UV Protection (RRSV System)
RAKtherm’s Reinforced Stabi UV Pipes are enhanced with anti-radiation external black aluminum layer, a UV-resistant component making it more durable and suitable for exposed and open air piping installations even under direct sunlight.
With notable decreased linear expansion rate by 75%, and 20% increased higher flow rate. The exceptional anti-UV properties is tested and proven to be excellent in ultimate piping network performance for diverse applications.
RAKtherm Reinforced Fiber (RRF System)
One of the hindrances in using plastic material including PP-R pipes is the possibility to expand drastically when exposed to heat, we have developed RAKtherm Reinforced Fiber Pipes – a unique recipe of glass fiber layers; with innovative component of PPR and glass fiber in order to decrease linear expansion up to 70%. This makes the welding processes easier which requires lower supports, saving on installation time and effort.
RAKtherm Reinforced Fiber with UV Protection (RRFV System)
A unique 4-layers pipe with glass fiber core layer and UV treatment skin outer layer for premium anti-UV protection. Mechanically stable being integrated with aluminum and external UV for maximum piping performance. 70% decrease linear expansion as compared to other pipes, and increased higher flow rate by 20%.
