Polypropylene pipes reinforced - products from very durable plastic, between the skin layers which passes additional layer of perforated, or otherwise treated, aluminum or fiberglass.This type of pipe fittings has a certain number of additional properties compared with similar products without reinforcement.

pipeline reinforcement materials made of polypropylene can be of several types.Each type has its own specific properties.

  • reinforcement using single piece of aluminum.Using this method, reinforcement of pipe wrapped on the entire outer surface of the aluminum.If necessary, the connection between the pipe pieces are removed outermost layer of metal approximately 1-2 millimeters thick.Pipe fittings of this type before installing it is necessary to coat the protective materials.
  • reinforcement using perforated aluminum sheet.Process reinforcement and welding produced by the same technology as in the case of a continuous sheet.Products of this type increases the penetration of oxygen into the skin.
  • Reinforcement of the pipe itself aluminum sheet.Armirovochny layer extends either in the middle of the product, or close to its inner surface.During the connection pieces of pipe material by welding is not required to strip to weld the end.
  • reinforcement via glass fibers.The reinforcing layer is located in the middle of the tube.
  • reinforcement using composite.Armirovochny layer extends in the middle of the pipe and is a mixture of polypropylene and glass fiber.

reinforced polypropylene pipes: Advantages

reinforced polypropylene pipes have a number of advantages over onymi without armirovochnogo layer.

  • increases the strength of tubular and consequently - the resistance to mechanical shock.
  • is an increase of boundary temperatures, which can withstand system paneling.
  • exception swelling and deformation of the plumbing after some time.
  • Saving cladding coatings that are applied on top of the system (eg in the insulated floor).
  • Improving the overall aesthetic appearance of the pipe communication.
  • naturally preserved these properties of polypropylene pipes as comparative cheapness, durability, resistance to chemicals, lack of erosion, with the exception blockages

Polypropylene pipes reinforced:

installation process Installation of reinforced polypropylene plumbing similarto the same effect when working with unreinforced polypropylene tube products.The difference manifests itself in several specific features.The ends of the outer tubes with a reinforcement should be cleaned to a thickness of not less than one millimeter.And the main process is carried out by welding the necessary elements to each other by their special pre-heating soldering iron.

Application of polypropylene fiber reinforced pipe is extensive.In addition to traditional communications: water supply hot and cold water, sewage system and so on.However, the use of solid and pipes can be as reliable protection for electrical wiring, and even to create original decorative elements: the partition wall, the frame for the chair frame for a mirror or a non-trivial decoration for streets or at home.
