PPR pipe are construction material most especially used in plumbing works which is a substitute for PVC pipes. PPR pipe is short for polypropylene random copolymer pipe (Polypropylene Random Copolymer type 3). PPR pipe’s primary component is polypropylene random copolymer (PPR-C). PPR pipe manufacture must adhere to Din8077/8078 norms. For the distribution of both hot and cold water, there are PPR pipes. In general, PPR pipe contains the following features, applications, and applications.
PPR pipes have different outer diameter sizes that are ranging from 20mm to 63mm and is thicker than PVC. High resistance to heat and chemicals is the defining quality of raw materials in the pipe business. The PPR Pipe and Fittings’ hot and cold water systems depend on the PPRC raw material. The PPR raw material’s monomer forms a random chain and is captured. The production of any biological substance on PPR Pipe and Fittings is also denied. Additionally, it can be colored and offers a feature to protect the flavor and odor of the fluid. The lifespan of PPR Pipe and fittings may be greater than 50 years with the right pressure and heat.
Main Feature of PPR Pipe System
There are many benefits to PPR pipes and PPR pipes fittings. The pipes’ extremely low thermal conductivity makes them perfect for systems that serve both cold and hot water. Together, they and glass wool insulation systems are employed in contemporary buildings to increase energy efficiency. The others are stated below:
50 year lifetime at 20 °C and 25 ATM pressure.
It is appropriate for. 20 ° C and +95 ° C (freezing point of fluid in insulation must be considered)
It is durable for the reasons listed above.
Extreme chemical resistance
A bright and smooth interior surface
Water’s appearance, flavor, and aroma do not alter.
Offers protection against heat and sound.
Fittings have no diameter twist. The performance is at its peak.
Installation and installation savings of up to 70%
