SANCO® tube – the bare copper tube for sanitary and heating installations


SANCO® is Europe's most widely installed bare copper installation tube. It is produced according to a continuously further developed manufacturing processs that makes the tubes extremely safe, durable and therefore long-lasting.

Copper is a sustainable material that is 100% recyclable. The tubes are gas-tight, oxygen diffusion-proof, UV-resistant and compatible with fittings from a wide range of manufacturers. SANCO® tubes are applicable in the areas of drinking water, heating, gas, liquid gas, oil, rainwater and solar.

SANCO® tubes are permanently certified and stand for a consistently high quality that exceeds the requirements demanded by regulations and standards.
