This specification covers requirements for multiplayer pipe type 2 and compression fittings for hot and cold drinking water systems. Multilayer pipe type 2 is produced using a butt-welded aluminum pipe as a core, with an extruded inside layer of crosslinked polyethylene (PEX). An adhesive layer is used to bond the inside layer to the wall of the aluminum pipe. An outer layer of polyethylene (PE) and an adhesive layer are extruded to the outer wall of the aluminum pipe. This specification includes compression fittings and thread or solder adapters for use with pipe and fittings. The pipe dimensions, compression-fitting dimensions, burst pressure, thermal cycling, and excessive temperature-pressure capability shall be in conformance to the specification.

This standard is referenced in the 2012 International Plumbing Code® and the International Residential Code®.
