Polypropylene pipes and fittings for sarico
Plug-in polypropylene tubes The plumbing of a house must be constructed carefully. Water losses, in fact, can cause structural damage that in the worst case could even compromise the stability of walls and floors. The material with which the plant is built is a critical parameter that will condition the reliability and longevity of the pipes. Polypropylene pipes compared to those made with other materials, have characteristics that make these pipes the ideal choice for the installation of plumbing systems for the home and for the garden. The polymer from which the polypropylene tubes are made ensures greater strength and reliability than most other materials available on the market. Moreover, their versatility and lightness facilitate the construction of the plants. The polypropylene tubes are made of a thermoplastic material obtained through chemical polymerization processes of the propylene molecules. Compared to other synthetic resins, polypropylene has some peculiarities that make it polyvalent. In fact, it has wide fields of application, ranging from the construction of plumbing and heating systems to the textile industry. This polymer has a high melting point and excellent mechanical properties. Its chemical characteristics make it very resistant to high temperatures, to corrosion by acidic and basic substances and to the wear of time. These qualities mean that polypropylene pipes are the first choice in the construction of hydraulic systems. Polypropylene is an inert material and therefore suitable for the use of hot and cold sanitary water. The resistance, reliability and ease of installation of the propylene tubes are due to its chemical-physical characteristics. Polypropylene is inert to low and high pH solutions, resulting as a consequence immune to corrosion due to acidic and basic substances. Its high melting temperature makes it resistant to high temperatures and frost. Its surface structure minimizes water friction, ensuring a fluid hydrodynamics that prevents occlusions and encrustations, including those due to limestone accumulation. Polypropylene also has a low specific gravity. This particularity facilitates transport, processing and installation of the systems. Finally, polypropylene pipes have a low thermal conductivity. This prevents superfluous heat dispersions and condensation. There are different types of material that can be used for the construction of hydraulic systems. Each type of pipe has its own distinctive property, therefore the choice of the plant will be made taking into account the peculiarities of the material that constitutes the pipes. Of all the materials generally used, polypropylene pipes are undoubtedly those which, for the aforementioned reasons, satisfy most of the construction requirements. Given their lightness and versatility, the installation of systems made of polypropylene pipes is easy and fast, thus reducing installation costs. Overall, it is highly recommended to use polypropylene pipes for the construction of a reliable and long-lasting hydraulic or thermo-hydraulic system.
