Plastic pipes are familiar materials in all constructions with high applicability and convenience in use, design and construction. However, do you understand all about plastic pipes? How to choose the right type of plastic pipe for your project? Find out with EUROPIPE in the article below!

Classification and application

Currently, there are 3 main types of plastic pipes commonly used in constructions: HDPE pipes, PP-R pipes and uPVC pipes. Each type of plastic pipe is used for different purposes based on their characteristics.

How to choose quality plastic pipes

To choose a good plastic pipe, you should base on the following criteria:

  • Determine the needs and purposes of use in the project to choose the right type of plastic pipe.
  • Determine the length and diameter of the pipes, check the thickness of the pipes to see if they meet the standards for use in the building or not.
  • Factors such as smoothness, smoothness in the pipe wall; Pipes must have a uniform color with no roughness and a uniform thickness is also a concern.
  • Choose products from reputable brands like EUROPIPE to always be assured of quality, clear warranty policy.
