PDM US - "First In Pipes"

PDM US draws on nearly 50 years of experience in copper tube manufacturing from our origins in Europe. In April 2013, we relocated our World Headquarters and main production plant to Rock Hill, South Carolina, USA. We pride ourselves on innovating, manufacturing, and delivering the best preinsulated copper pipes in the HVAC/R industry.

Why Choose Us?

Innovation

PDM US is committed to continuously striving for improvement in our offerings to the HVAC/R industry by leveraging innovation and technology to provide the most advanced products available. Exceeding present industry standards and preparing to meet future standards, we are committed to always being at the forefront of developing and delivering the best possible products and solutions.

Quality

Our proprietary products are all crafted to perfection and tested to meet the highest standards. GelCopper™ product line is UL 723 CLASSIFIED for 25/50 and UL PERFORMANCE VERIFIED for UV resistance. It’s been tested and performance proven to work, to last, and to satisfy your needs. Contact us and we’ll show you how it’s done.

Service

We pride ourselves on our service and making our customers our top priority. Choosing PDM US ensures a customer-centric supplier-customer experience.

Availability

Our automated production process and state-of-the-art facility allows us to offer the most reliable deliveries in the industry. Through our careful forecasting and high production efficiency, we are able to quickly and efficiently fulfill your orders year-round.

PDM US - The 10 Competitive Advantages

1

Durability

Our polyethylene internal foam and protective outer jacket make our insulation extremely tough and very difficult to tear or break apart. Our insulation is the most abrasion-resistant and long lasting in the market. Other competitive products may be simply torn apart by hand, or deteriorate
over time.

2

Made in the USA

Most of the products from our competitors are made in Asia or Europe. Our insulation is produced in-house in Rock Hill, SC using exclusively American ingredients, therefore guaranteeing a high-quality product, consistent availability, and reliable delivery times.

3

ASTM-B280 / 700 PSI R410 COPPER

We only use high-quality ASTM-B280 / 700 PSI R410 copper.

4

Unique insulating process

Several competitors of ours simply insert the copper tube into the insulation leaving a wide gap that could lead to condensation. Our proprietary insulation process is performed by automated production machinery where the polyethylene foam is built on the copper tube and then coated by an additional protective outer jacket. This process ensures a tighter fit of the insulation around the copper tube preventing any risk of condensation.

5

Superlative R-values

Our insulation has higher R-values when compared to similar thickness of traditional black rubber or to the R-values of most of our competitors.

6

UL 723, ASTM E84 (25/50) CERTIFIED FOR FIRE AND SMOKE

Our products are the first ever to be UL 723 CLASSIFIED – ASTM E84 25/50 for fire and smoke. Our products are all Plenum Rated.

7

UL PERFORMANCE VERIFIED for UV RESISTANCE

Our GelCopper™ product line is UL PERFORMANCE VERIFIED for UV exposure (visit: https://verify.ul.com) and guaranteed for 5 years. All other PDM products have been successfully tested internally for UV resistance against any major degradation, discoloration, or deterioration for a minimum of 5 years.

8

Foot Marking

The last phase of our insulating process ends by marking each foot of our rolls so that contractors can easily determine the accurate initial unit charge, reduce copper waste, and perform a professional installation. Traditional black rubber does not have this feature.

9

PAINTABLE

The standard colors of our products are an aesthetically pleasing white, black, or silver, but they may be painted to match the surrounding materials if desired.

10

Ask PDM US

You probably have some questions, right? Well, this section will hopefully help answer any of those initial questions you may have. We put down the questions and answers that we get most of the time. If you don‘t see a question or answer you have listed here, please contact us. We‘re here to help.

GelcopperUS was the first polyethylene-insulated product in the market and the first to feature a protective film on the insulation. This film acts as a protection from tearing during the installation saving you time and money.

GelcopperUS was the first product in the market offered with incremental foot marking which helps during the process of charging the unit with refrigerant guaranteeing a first accurate charge.

PDMus pioneered the usage of longer rolls introducing in the market the 164ft rolls.

A longer roll means to minimize the possibility of scraps (saving money) and allowing you to have continuous runs on VRF installations where 70ft or 80ft runs are common. The benefits of a continuous run are the time saved to not have to join together two rolls (common method) and the possible hazard that a leaking joint creates.

This is why GelcopperUS is the professionals’ choice!

GelcopperUS is currently available in sizes 1/4 – 3/8 – 1/2 – 5/8 – 3/4 – 7/8 and in lengths 50ft and 164ft.

Yes, PDMus only uses high quality domestic copper rated per ASTM B280.

Yes, PDMus sent samples of GelcopperUS to UL laboratory in order to be tested according to UL723 – ASTM E84. GelcopperUS passed the test according to UL 723 – ASTM E84 for 1/2″ and 3/4″ insulation thickness (test results available upon request).

GelcopperUS insulation is UV resistant. The external film on our insulation is engineered to help lasting longer under the direct exposure to UV rays. However, we always recommend to protect your GelcopperUS by installing it under duct or taping it or paint it with a UV protective paint.

The R value in PDM US insulation varies between 4 and 9 depending on insulation thickness and diameter. Our R value calculation table is available upon request.

We highly value the cooperation and relationships we have built in these years with our distributors around the globe. A strong distributors network means a higher level of support for you. We thank you for your interest in using PDMus products and we encourage you to send us your information and we will redirect you to one of our distributors.

Thank you for your interest in PDMus products, we encourage you to send us a formal request with your information and one of our sales representative will get in contact with you as soon as possible.
