Geberit Mapress CuNiFe
Geberit Mapress CuNiFe is a sea water resistant material. It is especially suited to shipbuilding and has proved itself over many years with pipelines carrying salt water in lots of installations.
The copper-nickel-iron alloy is used in shipbuilding for engine room systems, the supply of service water, pool water and heating water.
Thanks to the pressing technology, installations can be carried out reliably and quickly without complex welding and soldering.
Benefits of Geberit Mapress CuNiFe
Lower labour costs in comparison to conventional connection technology.

Application ranges are easily identified by the plug colours
No danger of confusion with third-party products
No consumables such as oxygen or gas required
Simple connection technology
Can be used for surface-mounted and concealed installations
Resistant to salt water
High resistance to corrosion due to the copper-nickel-iron alloy (CuNi10Fe1,6Mn)
More than 30 years of practical experience in pressing technology
The 6 stage pressing process
- Cut and deburr the pipe
- Mark the insertion depth on the pipe
- Prepare the fitting
- Insert the pipe in to the fitting
- Press with the appropriate jaw or collar
- Remove the pressing indicator
Check you are using the correct material for the required application. See page 8 for an in depth overview of the applications for Geberit Mapress CuNiFe. Only Geberit Mapress system pipes are suitable to press Geberit Mapress CuNiFe fittings. To adapt on to existing or dissimilar materials you must use a threaded connection.
Use the correct tooling
Always check that you are using the correct tools, this can be checked in the Geberit Tooling Product Guide and Price List.
