What is the difference between PPR aluminum plastic pipe and PPR pipe?


I don’t know the problem that many users often encounter during the decoration process is the choice of pipe materials. Due to the variety of pipe materials on the market now, users are dazzled when choosing and do not know how to choose which suits them. The most common pipes in the market are PPR aluminum-plastic pipe and PPR pipe, so what is the difference between PPR aluminum-plastic pipe and PPR pipe?

 PPR pipe

Features of aluminum plastic pipe:


1. The connection is safe and leak-proof (the connection method uses hot-melt sockets to form a one-day-sealed system, not easy to leak)


2. Long anti-aging life (outer PPR prevents oxidation of the middle aluminum layer, and the middle aluminum layer can effectively block ultraviolet rays)


3. The aluminum layer blocks oxygen and is hygienic and sterile (the aluminum layer in the middle part blocks the outside air and better prevents the growth of bacteria in the pipeline)


4. High rigidity, toughness and high temperature resistance (it has the rigidity of metal pipes and the sanitation of plastic pipes, which have high strength and high temperature resistance)


5. Strong pressure bearing capacity and low temperature resistance (the rigidity of the pipe is improved by the aluminum layer in the middle part, which is better than ordinary PPR pipe pressure bearing capacity and low temperature resistance)


Features of PPR Pipe:


1. Clean, no peculiar smell (PPR is also called random copolymer polypropylene, raw material molecules have carbon and hydrogen elements, no harmful substances, clean and hygienic)


2. High temperature and high pressure resistance (water temperature up to 70 degrees can work for a long time, short-term use temperature can reach 95 degrees)


3. Corrosion-resistant and non-scaling (PPR pipe can greatly reduce the worry of rust in washbasins and baths caused by pipe rust, and reduce pipe blockage)


4. Convenient installation and reliable connection (using hot-melt connection, convenient and quick installation, the strength of the connection part is greater than the strength of the pipe body)


5. Thermal insulation and energy saving (The thermal conductivity is only one-two percent of that of metal pipes, and it is used in hot water pipes with excellent thermal insulation and energy saving effects)
