CPVC or Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride pipe is a thermoplastic polymer used for hot & cold water plumbing applications in residential, commercial and industrial buildings. They are produced as a result of chlorinating the PVC polymer. CPVC pipes are impact resistant, do not corrode, do not scale, safe for drinking water, easy to install, bendable and exhibit fire-retardant properties.
UPVC stands for Unplasticised PVC and is also known as rigid PVC. UPVC pipes and fittings are most commonly used for cold water plumbing system. They are light and easy to handle. They offer high mechanical performance, durability for a longer time, resistance to chemicals, UV exposure, and are 100% recyclable.
Made from polypropylene Random copolymer plastic, PPR pipes are relatively flexible pipes. They are produced through a continuous extrusion process. PPR can be used in hot and cold water as well as for purified drinking water systems.
PEX pipes or Cross-linked polyethylene pipes is a plastic material used for space heating and cooling and water supply piping systems. PEX pipes have successfully replaced copper, PVC and galvanized steel plumbing pipes since they offer several advantages. These pipes are flexible, offer high-heat resistance, durable and are easy to install.
