Polypropylene Pipe

Polypropylene is a lightweight polyolefin and generally high in chemical resistance. Although Type 1 PP conforming to ASTM D 2146 is slightly lower in physical properties than PVC, it is chemically resistant to organic solvents as well as acids and alkalies. Generally, PP should not be used in contact with strong oxidizing acids, chlorinated hydrocarbons and aromatics. PP has a design stress of 1,000 psi at 73°F, and has proven to be an excellent material for laboratory and industrial drainage pipe where mixtures of acid, bases and solvents are involved.

PP is joined by electro fusion process socket/butt/IR welding as well as mechanical joints.
