The difference between PPR pipes and PVC pipes


In recent years, with the continuous development of the economy and the continuous progress of society, the construction industry, municipal engineering, water conservancy engineering, and agriculture have also continued to develop. In these industries, PPR pipes and PVC pipes are two commonly used pipes, both of which have their advantages. So how much do you know about the difference between PVC pipe and PPR pipe?


The difference between PPR pipes and PVC pipes is mainly based on the thickness of the pipe diameter, but the essentials of this identification must be experienced. First of all, you must be familiar with the environment of the pipe and at least have an impression. In this case, after a long time, you will know the size of the tube when you see it.

 PPR pipes

1. Color difference: The materials used in PPR tube have toughness, and the color of good quality is bright, and the other is light cream yellow, and the color of poor quality is more confusing. The PVC pipe is milky white, the material is harder and more brittle, the section has no light, but its appearance is shiny.

2. Wall thickness difference: The diameters of PPR and PVC pipes are the same, the biggest difference is the thickness of the pipe wall, PPR pipe is thick, and PVC pipe is thin.


There are words on PPR pipes and PVC pipes, which can be understood at a glance, and the toughness of PPR pipes is good. Under the same pipe diameter, the wall of PPR pipes is usually thick.


3. PPR pipe has the advantages of light weight, good corrosion resistance, no fouling, and long service life. In addition, PPR pipes are safe and non-toxic, and can be used in hot and cold water pipes as well as in drinking water systems.

The maximum temperature of the PPR tube can work at 90 degrees, and at 70 degrees, the service life can reach more than 50 years, and at room temperature, its service life is more than 100 years. The installation of PPR pipe is very convenient, because PPR has good welding performance, whether it is thermal welding or electric welding machine, it is very convenient. Moreover, the crushed material of PPR pipe can be recycled, and it can also be used for secondary use in the production of pipes and fittings. The PVC pipe cannot be recycled for second use.
