Vietnam heat resistant plastic pipes manufacturers are "weighed down" in the fight with the issue of counterfeit goods, immitation goods, low quality goods which cost only 1/4.

Economic development, construction activities taking place more and more push the need to use plastic pipes and fittings to higher than ever. Never before, the domestic plastic pipes market was as vibrant as it is now.

In order to survive and develop, domestic brands not only compete fiercely with each other but also have to face the issue of immitation goods, counterfeit goods, low quality goods with very cheap selling prices. Previously, only products branded were counterfeited, immitated. But now, only "spotting" some genuine product just appearing in the market, counterfeit goods, imitation goods have appeared rampant.

For large projects, searching for and selecting reputable plastic pipes & fittings products are not difficult, as they usually buy at the root from the manufacturer. But for civil projects or retail consumers, this matter is not easy when even agents do business in a "snatching" way, deliberately selling mixed goods.

"Buying cheap plastic pipes, but in fact not cheap at all," said Nguyen Hoang Minh, on advising about selecting to buy heat-resistant plastic pipes products for users. If choosing low quality products, users will have to often repair. Meanwhile, with the in-house pipeline system, repair, replacement costs are also accompanied by many other related costs such as removal costs, installation costs, transportation costs, etc. Especially in the urban areas mainly with high-rise buildings, these incurred costs are very high, making costs of low quality products be "folded" many times.

According to Mr Minh, besides the brand factor, consumers can also recognize the product quality through their sensory eyes. Genuine heat resistant plastic pipes products usually have standard, sharp colors; the plastic surface is smooth, not looking "rough" as low quality plastic pipes products.
