Acu-Tech offers a new generation of high performance PP-R material (PP-RCT), a product that has led to a breakthrough for the advancement of PP pressure piping systems.
Advantages of PP-RCT (Polypropylene Random Copolymer with modified Crystalline structure and enhanced Temperature performance):
- Strength: 5.0 MPa at 70oC / 50 years, which is over 50% higher than standard PP-R at 3.2 MPa. This can offer significant cost savings by allowing smaller pipe sizing through higher system pressures.
- Higher Flow Rate: Up to 60% higher hydraulic capacity than standard PP-R Faser pipe, due to reduced pipe wall thickness.
- Cost Effective: The comination of high flow capacity / smaller pipe sizing and lighter weight pipe can offer a substantial cost advantage compared to traditional PP-R or metallic systems.
- PPR Pipe may be known as Coes pipe (pronounced ‘Coez’).
