PP & PE Plastic Pipe Extrusion are widely used as new environmentally friendly building materials in recent years. Both PP pipes and PE pipes have the characteristics of non-toxic, odorless, corrosion resistance, and low-temperature resistance.
So what are the differences between these two pipelines?
The PP plastic tubing is a thermoplastic resin-polypropylene polymerized by propylene. Polypropylene, a thermoplastic resin, has the lowest density among general plastics, but its overall performance is ideal for extrusion pipes. The characteristics of PP pipes are good corrosion resistance, heat-resistant stability, and mechanical properties. In addition, the PP materials are non-toxic, tasteless, and safe, and the surface of the pipe is smooth, light in texture, easy to transport and install. H.D.Plastics can make PP extrusion tubing with multiple colors and sizes.
PE is a thermoplastic resin polymerized by ethylene. The biggest feature is low-temperature resistance, good chemical properties, and it can withstand the corrosion of most acid and alkali media. The PE pipe is light in weight, good in toughness and low-temperature resistance, non-toxic, cheaper in price, high impact strength, but low in compression and tensile strength. Plastic Extrusion PE pipes are widely used in hot melt welding, flange thread connection drinking water pipe, rainwater pipe, gas Pipes, industrial corrosion-resistant pipes.
The chemical raw material PP is polymerized with propylene and is also a kind of thermoplastic resin. The characteristics of PP pipes are shown in their good corrosion resistance, heat-resistant stability, and mechanical properties, coupled with the non-toxic, odorless, and safer raw materials, the smooth surface of the pipe, light texture, and easy transportation and installation. It is widely used in construction and domestic water supply pipes.
Both PP & PE Plastic Pipe Extrusion have great advantages. PP pipes have stronger tensile strength than PE pipes, PE pipes are softer than PP pipes, and have better low-temperature resistance than PP tube. Therefore, it is wide to choose suitable pipes according to different application requirements.
