PP is generally available in three forms for use in pipelines PP-Homopolymer (PP-H), PP-Copolymer (PP-C) and PP Random Copolymer (PP-R). Other options in PP include: fire-retardant grades and electro-conductive grades. PP can also be UV stabilized by use of a stabilizer, and can be produced in black color.

Features &Advantages of PP vs other materials

Polypropylene combines all the required favorable properties for modern industrial pipeline construction

Excellent Chemical Resistance –  Higher reliability and wider scope of use
High Impact Strength –  Higher durability
High Thermal Resistance –  Less vulnerable to weathering
High Stress Crack Resistance –  Prevents inching growth of cracks
Excellent Fusion Capabilities –  Easier installation& movement
Low Density, Low Weight –  Quick installation and transportation
Homogenous Structure –  Aesthetically superior pipelines
Good Elasticity –  Reduces number of fittings, enables easier installation
Non-Toxic, Food Grade –  Suitable for use in food and pharma industries
