Plumbing: polypropylene pipes

New technologies affected not only finishing work in construction. They also affected engineering communications of structures, including internal sewage.

No one uses cast -iron pipes for the installation of sewer and water supply networks, in housing and industrial construction. Two types of pipes are currently used: PVC pipes (polyhlorvinyl pipes) and pipe pipes (polypropylene pipes).

Synthetic pipes

The advantage of pipes from synthetic materials:

pipes are not subject to corrosion.

service life – 50 years.

The pipes do not form deposits that reduce the cross section.

simple and quick installation.

resistance to a chemically active environment.

there is a difference between sewer pipes from PVC and PP. PP pipes withstand a higher water temperature. The limit is 95 degrees. In PVC pipes, when water gets with a temperature of 60 degrees, deformation may occur, which can lead to a weakening of the connections and, accordingly, leaks.

PVC labs are subject to deformation during long -term storage. Their cross -section from the round turns into an elips -shaped. Installation in this case becomes difficult.

PP pipe

New PP tubes with special additives, which at the molecular level change the structure of polypropylene, have certain advantages:

not subject to corrosion processes and the influence of wandering currents.

resistant to active chemicals.

Ecologically safe. Water passing through pipes does not have an unpleasant taste and smell.

During operation, the process of overgrowing the internal section is not observed.

The formation of ice in the pipe does not destroy the pipe.

pipes are lighter than metal 9 times.

well withstand physical activity.

polypropylene products are good sound insulators. Significantly reduce sound when passing water.

Very simple automated installation that does not require the use of consumables.

condensation is not formed on the surface of the pipes.

Polypropylene pipes do not require painting.
