RAKtherm- Gulf Plastic and Converting Industries is under the flourishing arm of an illustrious group Hashim Industry, which was established 1963. We are one of the region’s renowned business conglomerates. RAKtherm is the flagship division and pioneer of integrated PPR, PEX, anti-UV, Reinforced, and DVW piping systems.
Throughout the years, RAKtherm is known for its world-class brand delivering effective and efficient piping systems. With continuous pursuance in finding solutions to the major challenges in the MEP industry, we established ourselves highly recognized in the piping industry. Our understanding to the technological quest in plastic piping systems enables us to address these demanding challenges.
Enjoy the benefit of 15-YEARS WARRANTY for all RAKtherm piping network systems starting from the date of your purchase. You may ask your local representatives for more details.
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.
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.
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.
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.
