Easy to useEasy to work with. I had no problem running this pipe 10m from the loft, through the ceiling, then through a wall to an adjoining room for a new radiator - and back again for the return :) easy to bend..

Excellent productNote to the previous reviewer: Unroll the pipe gently but firmly onto a flat surface, then it will be straight.
Soft copper micro-bore always comes rolls: if it were supplied in straight lengths it would be ruined, and genuinely unstraightenable once it had been transported.
10mm is excellent for exposed central heating runs. I used it in a timber-framed period house and it looks good, and very unobtrusive once painted. It’s very easy to dress around uneven walls, exposed studs, and obstructions.

Does the jobComes in a coil as shown, virtually impossible to get properly straight.
Is the microbore copper piping suitable for conducting gas (propane) ?
Asked by: tronto
It will do the job as it meets BS EN 1057 - 220. However the wall thickness is only 0.7mm and I think that means it is more suitable for water and CH systems. I believe recommended wall thickness for gas applications is 0.8mm. 3/8 imperial is usually 0.8 mm wall thickness. Hope that helps
