Profile: PPR pipe is known polypropylene pipes, Polypropylene random copolymer with a pipe by extrusion, injection molding a tube. PPR Pipe is used in most home improvement projects a water supply pipeline. PPR pipe interface with hot melt technology, are completely integrated into the pipe together, so once installed pressure tested and will not be further leakage, high reliability. This does not mean there is no defect PPR pipes water pipes, heat resistance, a less pressure more long term working temperature should not exceed 70oC; each piece of limited length, and cannot bend construction, long distance or if the pipeline the corner and more should be used in the construction of a large number of joints; pipe fittings cheap but relatively high prices. Speaking from the overall performance, PPR pipe is the high cost of pipe, water pipe so as decoration material of choice for transformation. Processed from thermoplastic polyolefin into pipes & fittings with superior chemical & physical properties, PPR is environmentally friendly and is produced in line with energy conservation international standards. Its characteristics include being lightweight, heat resistant, anti-corrosive, easily installed, has low thermal conductivity, durable connection and fittings. Characteristics of PPR Pipes: â€¢ PPR raw materials for elements only carbon and hydrogen elements, there is no harmful toxic elements in the existence of health, reliable, not only for hot and cold water pipes, can be used to clean drinking water systems. â€¢ PPR pipe thermal conductivity coefficient of 0.21w/mk, only steel pipe, 1/200. â€¢ PPR pipe Vicat softening point of 131.5oC. Maximum working temperature of up to 95oC, water supply and drainage to meet the construction specifications require the use of hot water system. â€¢ It has long service life. PPR pipe in working temperature 70oC, working pressure (PN) 1.O MPa conditions, the service life of up to 50 years; at room temperature (20oC) service life of up to 100 years. â€¢ PPR has good welding properties, pipe, pipe fittings can be used hot melt and fused connections, easy installation, connection reliability, its connecting parts of pipe strength is greater than the strength of its own. â€¢ PPR waste through clean, broken recycling in the pipe, pipe fittings production. Application: PPR pipe has a wide range of applications: â€¢ PPR is frequently utilized as hot and cold water facilities for commercial buildings â€¢ food, chemical, electronic and other industrial pipe network â€¢ corrosive liquid pipe network â€¢ potable water supply â€¢ air conditioning pipelines, residential heating system â€¢ compressed air pipes network for factories â€¢ swimming pools â€¢ solar energy and agriculture industries â€¢ Residential cold and hot water system â€¢ Underground heating system â€¢ Conveyor of industrial water and chemical materials â€¢ Sanitary and pure water pipelines â€¢ Hot water recycling system â€¢ Compressed air pipelines â€¢ Drink manufacturing and conveying system â€¢ Other industrial and agricultural pipe Market Scenario: Considerable growth in the use of PPR (Random Copolymer Polypropylene) pipe systems in new buildings has resulted in a surging demand for PPR material in expanding markets across Eastern Europe, North Africa, and Asia. According to the relevant data plastic sheet, plastic pipe and plastic steel windows and doors are subject to market interest rate of 53% above market demand, an upward trend. In Western Europe, the advantages of PPR pipes are sometimes outweighed by the higher labour costs incurred when fitting the systems, but, in markets with a lower cost of labour, PPRs advantages are driving a big increase in demand. As per industry estimates, global demand for plastic pipe is expected to increase 4.5% annually to 8.1 billion metres in 2012 in weight terms, consumption is projected to expand 4.6% per year to 18.1 million metric tons. The applications and demand of PPR pipes and fittings in the market is immense and therefore its market position is splendid. Hence it is an excellent field to venture.
