When it comes to plumbing and water distribution systems, Polypropylene Random Copolymer PPR pipes have gained significant popularity. These versatile pipes offer several advantages, including durability, corrosion resistance, and ease of installation.
When we talk about plumbing and water distribution system
Understanding PP-R Pipes
What Are PP-R Pipes?
PPR pipes are a type of plastic pipe made from Polypropylene Random Copolymer, a thermoplastic material known for its excellent chemical and temperature resistance. These pipes are renowned for their long service life and are commonly used in plumbing and heating systems.
Types of PP-R Pipes
PP-R Pipe for Cold Water (PPR-C)
PPR-C pipes are designed for cold water applications. They are suitable for transporting potable water in homes, commercial buildings, and industrial facilities. These pipes have a smooth interior surface, reducing friction and preventing mineral build-up.
PP-R Pipe for Hot Water (PPR-H)
PPR-H pipes are specifically engineered to handle hot water distribution systems. They are designed to withstand higher temperatures than PPR-C pipes, making them ideal for hot water supply lines, underfloor heating, and industrial processes.
PP-R Fiberglass Composite Pipe (PPR-FB)
PPR-FB pipes are reinforced with fiberglass layers. This type of pipe combines the benefits of PP-R with increased strength and rigidity, making it suitable for high-pressure applications such as industrial pipelines.
PP-R Aluminum Plastic Composite Pipe (PPR-AL-PPR)
PPR-AL-PPR pipes feature an aluminum layer sandwiched between two layers of PP-R. This design provides enhanced heat resistance, making them suitable for both hot and cold-water systems. They are also ideal for gas distribution.
Versatile and Reliable
PPR pipes, available in various types to suit specific needs, have become an essential choice for plumbing and water distribution systems. Their durability, resistance to corrosion, and ease of installation make them a versatile and reliable option for a wide range of applications. Whether you’re working on a residential, commercial, or industrial project, PPR pipes offer the quality and performance you need.
The primary benefits of the PPR-AL-PPR pipe with aluminum foil include: having equivalent strength to metal pipes and being easily bendable without rebound; offering high temperature resistance, high-pressure resistance, and resistance to corrosion; featuring a smooth interior for low resistance and reduced clogging; exhibiting good flame retardancy, heat insulation, and heat preservation properties; thanks to the aluminum core, it can effectively isolate oxygen, hinder bacterial growth, being lightweight, easy to work with, and boasting a service life exceeding 50 years.
When it comes to pressure-bearing capacity, the primary role of pressure bearing in the PPR-AL-PE pipe lies with the PPR layer within the inner pipe, distinguishing it from regular PPR pipes.
Outstanding hygiene performance: The PPR aluminum composite pipes boast inner and outer layers made from special polyethylene materials, ensuring cleanliness and non-toxicity. Most importantly, the middle layer of these aluminum-plastic pipes is composed of aluminum, serving the dual purpose of light and oxygen blocking. It is widely recognized that unhealthy microorganisms thrive in environments with light and oxygen. The aluminum layer in the middle of these pipes effectively hinders the growth of microorganisms and algae, a feat that surpasses the capabilities of all-plastic tubes. Unlike all-plastic pipes, which not only incorporate a substantial amount of antioxidants to prevent material degradation but also release these antioxidants into the stagnant water within the pipeline, potentially causing water pollution. Additionally, since all-plastic pipes lack light and oxygen barrier materials, they are highly susceptible to microbial growth, leading to secondary water quality pollution.
The composite PPR pipe features a five-layer structure comprising an outer layer of PPR, an inner layer of PE, and an aluminum layer in the middle. Furthermore, hot melt adhesive is utilized between these layers and extruded and bonded at high temperatures and pressures to achieve a strong composite effect.
This type of pipe combines the advantages of both plastic and metal pipes, effectively enhancing overall pipe performance. Thanks to its minimal expansion coefficient, aluminum-plastic PPR pipes are less prone to issues such as deformation during installation. Additionally, their excellent toughness and high-temperature resistance often eliminate the need for post-installation repairs.
The PPR-AL-PPR pipe with an aluminum foil core boasts several key advantages. It shares the robustness of metal pipes while offering flexibility without rebound. With its remarkable heat resistance, high-pressure tolerance, and resistance to corrosion, it excels in challenging environments. The pipe’s smooth interior minimizes resistance and blockages, ensuring efficient water flow. Additionally, it exhibits excellent flame retardancy, heat insulation, and heat preservation properties. Thanks to the aluminum core, it provides a complete oxygen barrier, preventing bacterial growth. This pipe is lightweight, easy to work with, and boasts an impressive service life of over 50 years.
Our raw materials are sourced from South Korea, renowned for their exceptional temperature and pressure resistance, as well as their high quality. The PPR water pipes exhibit impressive longevity, being highly resistant to corrosion and scaling. They can maintain their durability for a minimum of 70 years under standard temperature and pressure conditions. These PPR water pipes are crafted from entirely new materials, ensuring that no unpleasant odors are emitted during the welding process. Instead, they only release carbon dioxide and water upon complete combustion, guaranteeing the safety of your drinking water.
