PVC pipe fittings have good mechanical properties and excellent corrosion resistance. They are lightweight, easy to install and do not require maintenance. Steel pipes for public works are corroded and must be corroded during use. Paint is often used and maintenance costs are high. Metal pipes for general construction and public works need to be replaced within about 20 years, and PVC pipes with good processing capacity have a service life of 50 years. hence, PVC pipe fittings are a good plastic product with low production cost, high strength and corrosion resistance.


What if I don't care?


On the one hand, PVC pipe fittings in the sun will produce toxic gas chlorine, which will cause harm to the human body. On the other hand, after the sun is exposed, although the impact strength of the pipe is slightly reduced, it is not enough to attract attention, but the color of the pipe surface will fade, and the pipe will become hard and brittle. If it fades, hardens and becomes brittle, it will definitely be worse than before, reducing its useful life.


How to protect?


Step 1

Arrange the area that is suitable for work and work in a well ventilated area. If the pipe does not move, open the window and install a fan to circulate air. In closed areas, chemicals such as naphtha-based liquids and PVC primers can adversely affect the human body.


Step 2

Wear gloves. Some of the chemicals needed to avoid this process are harmful to the skin.


Step 3

Wash the PVC fittings with a rag and water. Remove all stickers and debris from the pipe. If necessary, a naphtha-based liquid can be used to remove the binder and oil from the pipe. After cleaning the tubing with any chemicals, flush the tubing with warm water. Dry the tube with a dry rag or towel. The pipe must be dry or the primer will not work.


Step 4

Coat the PVC pipe with a PVC primer. Use a paint brush to apply a primer over the entire pipe. Let the primer dry.


Step 5

Brush the water-based latex paint on the PVC pipe. Apply a uniform coat of paint with a paint brush. In this process, light colors are preferred because they reflect light and are resistant to UV light.
