How to judge the quality of PPR pipes

2020-11-16

PPR pipes are a material used in concealed home improvement projects, which can be said to be very important. There are many brands of PPR water pipes on the market, but the quality is uneven. How to choose reliable products from many brands is a problem for many consumers. So, for consumers, how to distinguish the quality of PPR pipes more intuitively?

 

1. Easy to solder

 

In the process of welding PPR pipes, if the raw materials used are not good, it is easy to cause the material to melt and become thin and soft, which will cause poor welding, resulting in later water leakage, reduced water flow, and even pipeline blockage.

It can be said that weldability is a crucial performance feature of PPR water pipes, which is the most critical point of the quality of PPR pipes.

2. Light transmittance

 

In the national standard, the light transmittance of PPR pipes is required, and it needs to be less than 0.2%. This standard of PPR pipe can screen out a large number of products on the market. The identification method is also very simple. Find a darker place and take a look at the flash of the phone to see the difference.

 

The significance of strict control of light transmission for PPR pipes is that they can effectively prevent the growth of algae in the water. Inferior water pipes with unqualified light transmittance will breed a lot of algae if they are exposed to the sun for a long time.
