Here are some of the latest radiant and hydronic products from this year.

Alumicor® PEX-Al-PEX


PEX-Al-PEX

The new Alumicor® PEX-Al-PEX tubing offers the benefits of cross-linked polyethylene tubing plus it holds its shape when bent. A layer of aluminum is sandwiched between two layers of PEX that not only gives it an easy-to-handle, malleable characteristic, it also improves heat transfer and acts as an oxygen barrier, helping to protect the boiler and all other nonferrous system components from corrosion.  Zurn Industries www.zurn.com

Therma-Floor® gypsum underlayment

Gypsum Underlayment

Therma-Floor® is a gypsum underlayment designed to pour over hot water tubes or electric heating cables. It acts as the thermal mass for any radiant floor system. Therma-Floor encases the tubes or cables in crack-resistant, noncombustible gypsum. It resists breakdown to 150 degrees F and, because it's poured only 1 1/4 inches thick, the heating system is more responsive and more comfortable.  Maxxon Corp.  www.maxxoncorporation.com
