1/2" PEX-AL-PEX Compression Manifold Adapter
1/2" PEX-Al-PEX Compression adapters are used to connect 1/2" PEX-AL-PEX tubing to the SSM and BSM series radiant heat manifold's outlets.
Each adapter consists of a PEX insert, a compression ring and a nut.
Compatible with all makes of 1/2" PEX-AL-PEX tubing manufactured to ASTM F1281 standard (Everhot PEX-AL-PEX, Watts RadiantPEX-AL, Zurn Alumicor, Uponor MLC/Multicor, Kitec/IPEX, Mr. PEX and others).
Adapters are free with any manifold purchase - you can request any particular adapter sizes(s) by leaving a note at the checkout.
Are there o-rings on the part that goes inside of the pex-Al-pex tubing? What is the difference between this adapter and the regular pex tubing adapter?

Yes, the PEX-AL-PEX manifold adapter is different from the regular PEX manifold adapter. PEX-AL-PEX tubing is a lot harder to compress since it has a layer of aluminum, so the adapter (insert) has (2) O-rings to ensure a leak-free connection.
