A Quick, Reliable Connection Every Time

  • To create a truly advanced next-generation fitting, we questioned every detail—from fitting design to material. The end result is a unique plastic fitting that’s strong, easy to install and long-lasting, all at a cost lower than that of brass fittings with a quality far superior to metal insert fittings
  • Philmac® dynamic compression sealing provides higher pull-out resistance than brass or metal. CSA and NSF approved, Philmac® offers strong, reliable service for a 50+ year design life
  • With the use of a simple adaptor kit, Philmac® 3G CTS fittings can be easily converted to work with IPSOD, composite or even copper pipe


A Unique Design for a Perfect Seal

Philmac® 3G fittings are made from advanced high-performance polypropylene so they’re UV-, impact- and corrosion-resistant—tough enough for 50+ years of reliable service.
