PPR =Polypropylene Random Copolymer Type 3
PPR pipes is made with reference to the standard of Germany.
There are three general types of polypropylene: homopolymer, random copolymer, and block copolymer. The comonomer used is typically ethylene. Ethylene-propylene rubber or EPDM added to polypropylene homopolymer increases its low temperature impact strength. Randomly polymerized ethylene monomer added to polypropylene homopolymer decreases the polymer crystallinity and makes the polymer more transparent.
- Residential cold and hot water system
- Underground heating system
- Conveyor of industrial water and chemical materials
- Sanitary and pure water pipelines
- Hot water recycling system
- Compressed air pipelines
- Drink manufacturing and conveying system
- Other industrial and agricultural pipelines
Polypropylene random copolymers are thermoplastic resins produced through the polymerization of propylene, with ethylene links introduced in the polymer chain. The resins possess a broad range of characteristics and are used in a wide range of applications.
Advantages of PPR Pipe Systems
Here are just some of the . PPR pipes have/are:
- High impact strength and flexibility
- Ability to perform over a wide temperature range, from very low to high temperature
- Environment-friendly as it takes less energy to manufacture PPR pipes and are recyclable compared to its metal counterparts
- Fast, simple, fusion-welding of pipes and joints which produces a uniform weld to generate absolute tightness of connections with a strength equal, or even exceeding the pipe itself
- Very long lifetime with a guaranteed service life of over 50 years
- Damped vibrations and sounds are absorbed resulting to noise reduction
- Resistant to a wide array of chemicals
- Resistant to corrosion as compared to metal products
- Can be connected to any other materials used in existing installations.
