Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) – a thermoplastic material based on vinyl chloride, obtained by polymerization. PVC is a hard, chemically-and light-resistant polymers than polyethylene, but its heat-resistance as low. PVC pipes are resistant to hot water and chemical compounds. Application of polyvinyl chloride pipes – local kanalizatsion1 WIDE network, working without pressure. Can be used for the organization of the drinking water supply. Main advantages – light weight, smooth walls, corrosion resistance, ease of installation (such pipes can be cut easy with a hacksaw, a network of them are easily assembled by hand with bells, couplings and fittings with rubber sealing rings).
* PVC and PVC-U – PVC pipes for cold water.
* PVC-C (CPVC) – of chlorinated PVC for hot water and heating. Do not bend, much stronger than PP.
Pipes are different in color: for cold water (PVC / PVC) – white, hot water (CPVC / HPHV) – yellow. Depending on the manufacturer’s colors may be others. Available diameters 16-110 mm. Pipes and fittings are joined using adhesives or cold welding.
Rigid pipe with PP, PVC-C and PVC-U used directly to replace the steel pipes without altering the pipeline route. They can be fastened directly to the building structures.
