Plastic Pipes

Different Types Of Plastic Pipes

There are many different types of plastic pipes to choose from each with their own unique benefits in certain applications. The most common of these is PVS plastic pipes. Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is a durable and tough material that is suitable for a number of applications for plastic pipes. PVC plastic pipes can also easily be manufactured in a range of sizes, lengths and thicknesses according to the requirements of the application that they will be used for.

Another type of material used in the manufacture of plastic pipes is CPVC or Corzan Polyvinyl chloride. These pipes provide solutions that are as durable and tough as the plain PVC plastic pipes with the added benefit of being having a higher abrasion resistance. This makes them ideal for the carrying and delivery of chemical or other hazardous products that are not suitable for use with plain PVC plastic pipes. In addition, CPVC plastic pipes can withstand both higher and lower temperatures than other types of pipes ranging from a low 5 degrees Celsius to water at boiling point or other fluids at 100 degrees Celsius.

Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene or ABS plastic pipes falls somewhere midway between PVC and CPVC. Although these plastic pipes are more abrasion resistant than PVC and are suitable to carry some types of chemicals, they are not as durable and tough as CPVC. ABS plastic pipes can carry fluids ranging in temperature from a staggering -40 degrees Celsius to 70 degrees Celsius without being impacted in any way. These ABS plastic pipes are therefore popularly used in applications in the food and beverage industry as well as other sectors where hygiene and purity are a priority.
