PEX-AL-PEX Bending Tools

PEX-AL-PEX tubing contains a layer of aluminum to make PEX more rigid and prevent oxygen diffusion. Although it doesn’t normally work with the same fittings as standard PEX, PEX-AL-PEX is compatible with PEX uncoilers. Consider a PEX-AL-PEX bending tool to make easy and consistent turns. The Uponor tool works with Uponor and Rifeng PEX-AL-PEX, while Viega’s tool works only with their FostaPEX. For more information on PEX-AL-PEX tubing, visit
