What Is The Difference Between PPR Pipe And PVC Pipe?

There are various types of interior decoration materials. The water pipe is the material that must be used among them. But in fact, the materials of indoor decoration water pipes are divided into many kinds. There are mainly two kinds of common nowadays, namely PPR pipe and PVC pipe. So what is the difference between the two products? We consulted professional pipe manufacturers and summarized several aspects, let’s take a look!

1.The raw materials commonly used in the production of PPR pipes and PVC pipes are different. PPR pipe is made of copolymerized polypropylene material, while PVC pipe is made of polyvinyl chloride material. The production materials are different, resulting in different performance.

2.Due to the different manufacturing materials, the color of PPR pipe and PVC pipe is different. The PPR pipe made of polypropylene material has a bright surface and stronger pipe ductility. Different color pipes can be produced according to the addition of different color masterbatches.

3.Wall thickness is different. The commonly used specifications of PPR pipe, Dn20 and Dn25, the wall thickness is 2.3mm and 3.5mm respectively; the thickness of PVC pipe specification 6mm is 2.0mm, and the thickness of specification 8-11mm is 2.5mm.

4.Product costs are different. Due to the material and wall thickness, the product cost and price of PPR pipe and PVC pipe are also different. Generally speaking, the price of PPR pipe is relatively high.

5.The main purpose is different. Due to the material, the environmental sanitation and safety factor of PVC pipes are not as good as those of PPR pipes. In home decoration, PPR pipes are generally used as water supply pipes, which can be used for cold and hot water pipes. PVC pipes are often used for drainage pipe applications, and only cold water pipes are used.
