  • Viegas heritage of innovation began

    in Attendorn, Germany, in 1899 when

    Franz-Anselm Viegener introduced

    a new brass beer tap. By 1901,

    Viegeners family company had

    evolved and begun to manufacture

    home plumbing products, giving

    birth to Viegas international legacy

    of quality, ingenuity

    and efficiency.

    Real quality comes from innovation,

    not imitation. With more than

    112 years of


    in innovative

    thinking, Viega offers

    reliable service and

    proven quality. Customers trust

    Viega because our systems have

    proven themselves over and over

    again. Viega ProPress, the

    original press fitting system,

    revolutionized pipe joining in

    1989. Now, over one million

    Viega ProPress fittings are installed

    every day. We were the first to

    introduce press technology.

    Viega leads and our competition

    follows. And now

    Viega is proud to

    present the new

    Viega MegaPress

    black steel pipe line of fittings,

    providing the same reliability and

    quality as all our other products.

    Unpressed Pressed

    Viegas Smart Connect feature

    allows water or air to leak past the

    sealing element in an unpressed

    fitting, clearly indicating a missed

    connection. Since installers can

    easily see if all connections have

    been made during pressure

    testing, the Smart Connect feature

    helps save vast amounts of time

    during installation. Look for the

    colored dots because the genuine

    Smart Connect feature is only

    available on Viega fittings.

    3 ProPress connections are fast, flameless and reliable.

    2 Upon identification, use the press tool to press the fitting, making a permanent leak-proof connection.

    Viega Sealing Elements

    EPDM Sealing Element

    The black EPDM (ethylene-


    sealing element is a synthetically

    manufactured and peroxidically

    cross-linked general purpose

    elastomer with a wide range of

    applications, including hydronic

    heating, low-pressure steam, fire

    protection and compressed air.

    HNBR Sealing Element

    The yellow HNBR (hydrogenated

    nitrile butadiene rubber) sealing

    element is used mainly in

    fuel oil and gas applications,

    such as natural gas, propane,

    mixed and manufactured gases
