MM Kembla has combined the experience and knowledge of over 100 years of Australian metal tube manufacturing with German engineering to produce Kembla Stainless Steel Tube as part of the KemPress Stainless press-fit connection system. High quality 316L stainless steel tube manufactured and optimised for combined use with KemPress Stainless press fittings and superior levels of corrosion resistance.

With a warranty of 25 years for potable water and fuel gas applications, and a design life of 50 years, Kembla Stainless Steel Tube offers you the peace of mind and the simplicity you want with the highest quality, most reliable and trusted tube for use with press-fit systems.

Kembla Stainless tube is 316L grade (EN 1.4404) complying with DIN EN 10088, fabricated according to DIN EN 10312 and DVGW – W 541 and is supplied as straight 6m lengths with outside diameters in the range 15mm – 108mm. It is compliant with AS 5200.053 and has Watermark Approval #23151. Kembla Stainless tubes combine low carbon, at less than 0.03%, with a minimum molybdenum content of 2.3% for improved corrosion resistance. Low carbon, austenitic stainless steel is roll formed and then longitudinally plasma-inert gas-welded to precisely form the tubes. Kembla Stainless tubes are bright annealed and solution heat-treated, resulting in an attractive, hygienic and highly durable product.

  • Low carbon (<0.03%) and a minimum 2.3% Molybdenum content ensures high corrosion resistance and resistance to stress corrosion cracking
  • Strong, great pressure handling capabilities, even at high temperatures
  • Low level of thermal movement and UV resistant
  • TIG welded to provide smooth, strong and consistent weld that creates the ideal and optimal surface for press fittings
  • Tube is fully annealed after manufacture ensuring a stress relieved and corrosion resistant structure
  • Compliant with AS5200.053 and Watermark approved (Licence No. 23151)
  • 25 Year Warranty for potable water and fuel gas applications
  • 10 Year Warranty for industrial applications subject to MM Kembla written confirmation of product suitability.

10 Years (Industrial Applications)

For industrial applications, subject to MM Kembla confirming in writing that the products are suitable for the application, MM Kembla guarantees that the tube and fittings will be fit for their intended purpose for a period of not less than 10 years. MM Kembla warrants that if any installation using KemPress fittings becomes defective or fails and MM Kembla is notified of the details and is satisfied that the defect or failure was a result of a manufacturing defect and not the result of faulty specification, installation or incompatible environment, MM Kembla will replace or repair the defective goods and make good the installation.

25 Years (Potable Water and Fuel Gas Applications)

An intensive ISO 9001 certified quality control system is applied to all MM Kembla KemPress fittings to ensure they confirm to AS3688 and Australian Watermark certification requirements. MM Kembla warrants that if any installation using KemPress fittings becomes defective or fails and MM Kembla is notified of the details and is satisfied that the defect or failure was a result of a manufacturing defect and not the result of faulty specification, installation or incompatible environment, MM Kembla will replace or repair the defective goods and make good the installation.
