Since its development in the early 90’s the application of PPR pipe has become commonplace, due to its durability, cost effectiveness and long service life. As a manufacturer you may be curious as to why some companies choose to produce PPR over PVC and PE pipe. In this article we will cover the basics of PPR pipe, its features, advantages, and its most common applications.The durability, economical, and ecological advantages of PPR has resulted in it being used for an increasing number of diverse applications in recent years.The full name is polypropylene random copolymer which is great for water supply pipes (PPR) has good toughness, high strength, excellent processing performance, good creep resistance at higher temperatures, and has the unique advantages of high transparency of random copolymer polypropylene. The interface of the PPR pipe adopts hot-melt technology, and the pipes are completely fused together, so once the installation and pressure test pass, there will be no longer aging and water leakage like aluminium-plastic pipes.The wall thickness of PPR pipes is divided into four parts, six parts, etc., the wall thickness of the four parts is 2.3mm, and the thickness of the 6 parts is 3.5mm. PVC pipes are calculated with a diameter of 6mm and a wall thickness of 2.0mm, a nominal diameter of 8-10mm and a wall thickness of 2.5mm. In the same pipe diameter, the wall of the PPR pipe should be thickerIf you are home improvement, it is recommended that you choose PPR pipes, because PPR pipes are better than PVC pipes in terms of various properties, and the home needs hot water. PPR pipe also has the characteristics of good corrosion resistance, sanitation and non-toxicity, small expansion force, and firm connection of the system, which is more suitable for home improvement and water supply. The only disadvantage of PPR and PVC is that the price is slightly more expensive. PVC pipes are more suitable for drainage pipes and are more economical.
