Can PPR tube be installed openly after all?

- Mar 23, 2019-

Small series of views is that the PPR tube can be installed, now a lot of family PPR tube is installed, as for some people say PPR tube can not be installed, in fact, is a one-sided wrong point of view.


First of all, let's talk about why there are PPR tubes that cannot be installed explicitly:



PPR pipe is a kind of translucent pipe material, the scientific name is random copolymer polypropylene, its resistance to impulse, mechanical strength, flexural, anti-aging line is very excellent;


However, the PPR pipe has a very fatal defect, that is, it is afraid of direct sunlight. One is that the pipe will produce green algae and breed bacteria. Second, accelerate the aging of PPR tube;


Therefore, spread a PPR tube can not be installed in plain view, in fact, this view is not correct, should be PPR tube can not be installed in direct sunlight;


The friend that has decorated should be clear, the PPR canal that we install in the home, estimation has very few can be basked in by sunshine, so in the home bright outfit is without any problem.


Secondly, which is better, PPR pipe or PVC pipe?



PPR tubes are now used in 95% of households, and the usage rate is increasing gradually, for the following reasons:



First of all, because the PPR pipe performance is good, such as anti - impulse, anti - bending anti - seismic properties are very good;


Second, the construction is the use of hot melt connection, fast and convenient, joint connection security is high, rarely leakage problems;


The third pipe is made of random copolymer polypropylene, which is non-toxic and harmless, will not breed bacteria, safe and environmental protection.


PVC water pipes are used less and less, and will be phased out gradually, for the following reasons:



First of all, because of the poor mechanical properties of PVC pipe, such as anti - impulse, anti - bending anti - seismic are not good, a long time will appear pipe cracking water leakage;


Secondly, PVC pipe installation is the use of glue bonding, poor reliability of the connection, a little force is likely to crack;


Finally, the environmental performance of PVC pipes is not as good as PPR pipes, and the glue used when connecting is toxic, the pipes that are not environmental protection can not be used.
