Polybender has been designed to offer the installer fast, easy and quality ‘kink-free’ bends of Pair Coil Copper. The tool has been specifically engineered for use as an internal copper tube bender and can handle intense repetitive stress due to sharp bends with no negative impact on the tool’s physical properties. Due to the low friction finish, extraction after bending is easy and your Polybender will provide fast and effective bends time and time again. Polybender offers superior tube wall support and even dispersion of bend stress. As the tube is fully supported by a solid insert, there simply isn’t an option for kinking to occur. Obtaining a perfect bend radius is fast and easy with Polybender.

Polybenders are also perfect for rough-in installations where interference from other trade or site visitors all too often damages copper tube beyond repair, costing significant time, money and frustration. Polybender is available in 3/8, 1/2, 5/8 and 3/4 inch diameters all three metres in length.
