AbstractLaboratory and field experience in Europe and North America indicate that low density polyethylene pipe should be fully suitable for concrete slab radiant heating systems with proper control. Recorded failures emphasize the pipe must meet certain performance standards now available, and maximum temperatures should be positively limited to 130 degrees F, preferably 120 degrees F, at pressures not over 15 psi.
