Philmac 3G® Metric Compression Fittings
Philmac 3G® Metric Fitting Range – Simply Slide and Tighten™ for a reliable connection every time
Philmac’s range of Australian made 3G Metric Compression Fittings are the solution for the perfect connection every time thanks to Philmac’s unique Slide and Tighten™ technology.
Each fitting is pre-assembled and ready to use so there’s no need to disassemble the fittings or prepare the pipe prior to use. Simply cut the PE pipe square and slide it into the fitting until you feel the first point of resistance and then tighten the nut to the flange on the body of the fitting.
With Philmac 3G Metric Compression Fittings, just slide and tighten and the job’s done!

Philmac, Australia’s premier manufacturer of plastic compression fittings for polyethylene pipelines is proud to release 3G® Metric - our third and very latest generation of fittings to connect metric sized poly pipe. Having taken international markets by storm since its release in 2005, Philmac 3G Metric is now set to make metric poly pipe connections in Australia easier than ever before.
- Slide and Tighten™ – Incorporating all the benefits of Slide and Tighten™ technology with 100% positive feedback.
- No Loose Components – Grip ring and seal remain captive in the body when the nut is removed.
- Visual Stop – The flange on the body of the 3G Metric fitting provides a visual stop to indicate when the nut is fully tightened. This removes any uncertainty from the installation process.
- Interchangability – Rural, Safelok and 3G Metric components are all interchangeable as they share a common body.
- Designed to Minimise Pipe Twist – The fitting has been designed to minimise pipe twist as the nut is tightened. Maximum pipe twist is approximately three quarters of a turn compared to one and a half turns with many other fittings. Pipe twist can impact on not only the connection you have just made but also on the connection at the other end of the line.
- Made from Advanced Materials – The fitting is manufactured from lightweight, high performance thermoplastic materials with outstanding impact, UV and corrosion resistance. The materials used are non-toxic and taint free.
- Disassembly – The fitting has been designed so the grip ring is released as the nut is backed off, enabling the pipe to be simply pulled out of the fitting.
- Compact Size – The size of 3G Metric fittings has been kept to a minimum making this fitting ideal to use in compact spaces.
- Watermark and Standardsmark Approved – Suitable for use with potable water.
