It is not recommended to use non-ProPEX fittings with Uponor PEX pipe. For one, you lose the 25-year warranty on the pipe and fittings.

Beside above, can you crimp ProPEX? ProPEX works well in cold weather, especially with the built-in, auto-rotation mechanism on the new milwaukee® m12™ and m18™ ProPEX Expansion Tools. ProPEX works with the properties of uponor PEX tubing; clamp, crimp and press fittings fight the tubing’s elastic memory.

Also know, can you use crimp rings on Type A PEX?

Crimp fittings require copper or stainless steel crimp rings and a PEX crimp or clamp tool. Crimp fittings are compatible with all types of PEX tubing, except for PEX-AL-PEX. Crimp fittings are preferred for many applications since they are widely available and are the most affordable.

Is uponor the same as PEX?

There are three different types of PEX tubing: PEX-a, PEX-b and PEX-c. Uponor manufactures PEX-a tubing, which is considered the superior type of PEX in the industry because the crosslinking is done during the manufacturing process when polyethylene is in its amorphic state (above the crystalline melting point).
