Pec and hot water

I want to run pex from my hot water heater to a sink. Is there a certain pex for hot water? It will be about 3 feet from the outlet of the water heater.

Pec and hot water

PEX is typically rated to 180 degrees F. There is a special type of PEX for hydronic heating systems, but that does not apply to you, so any major manufacturer of PEX tubing for potable water use is OK.
