First, the raw materials used in the production of PVC pipes and PPR 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 PVC pipe and PPR pipe products is different, due to different materials. The PPR pipe of polypropylene material has a bright appearance and better toughness of the pipe. Other color pipes can be produced according to 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. PPR pipes are usually 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, PVC pipes remind different production costs. 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, PVC pipe tips are used differently. Due to material reasons, PVC pipes are not as hygienic and safe as PPR pipes. PPR pipes are generally used as water supply pipes in home installations. They can be used for hot and cold water pipes. PVC pipes are often used for drain pipes. Only cold water pipes can be used.
