In our life, pvc pipe fittings and PPR pipe fittings are common pipe fittings, and they are widely used and used in many aspects. We can see these fittings in heating systems, urban water supply, agricultural irrigation, etc. So what is the difference between the two, and then the PVC pipe manufacturers tell us the difference between PPR and PVC pipes.

First, the raw materials used in the production of PPR pipes and PVC pipes are different. The PPR tube is produced from a copolymerized polypropylene material, while the PVC tube is produced from a polyvinyl chloride material. The production materials are different, resulting in different properties.

Second, the color of PPR pipes and PVC pipe products are different due to different materials. The PPR pipe of polypropylene material has bright appearance and better toughness of the pipe. Other color pipes can be produced according to the different color masterbatch; PVC pipe is mostly milky white, the surface is shiny, but the cross section is not, the material is relatively fragile.

Third, the wall thickness is different. Yajie PPR pipe is divided into four pipes and six pipes, the wall thickness is 2.3mm and 3.5mm respectively; the wall thickness of PVC pipe is 6mm, the wall thickness is 2.0mm, and the wall thickness of 8-10mm is 2.5mm.

Fourth, production costs are different. Due to the material and wall thickness, the production cost and price of PPR pipe and PVC pipe are also different. In general, the price of PPR pipes is relatively high.

Fifth, the use is different. Due to the material, PVC pipe is not as hygienic and safe as PPR pipe. In the home decoration, the PJ pipe is generally used as the water supply pipe. It can be used for hot and cold water pipes. PVC pipes are often used for drain pipes. Only cold water pipes can be used. .

When we are installing the pipeline, we have to make a reasonable choice according to the specific situation. This requires us to understand the specific characteristics and application of the two types of fittings.
