What is the difference between a UPVC drain and a PVC drain?

PVC is polyvinyl chloride. It is the raw material of the drain pipe. Usually, it is a polyvinyl chloride resin powder. Nothing can be made from light PVC. To make something useful, add various active agents or catalyst stabilizers. UPVC is adding some activities. After the agent, semi-finished products must be produced by injection molding machine. In fact, UPVC drains are now called PVC drains. Therefore, in our procurement of drainage pipes, we can see that UPVC drainage pipes are also PVC drainage pipes. This is why HDPE pipes are short for PE pipes. So let's talk about it.

PVC drainage pipe introduction


The PVC pipe is made of polyvinyl chloride resin and has excellent characteristics such as accurate temperature sensing, timely melting, and rapid absorption of useful components of the additive when the attraction between the resin molecular chains is weakened. At the same time, it accepts the world famous calcium-zinc composite heat invariant.


In the process of high temperature and melting of the resin, it can capture, inhibit, absorb and release hydrogen chloride. The double bond addition reaction with the polyene structure reflects the vivid and non-constant chlorine atoms in the molecule. Thus, it is useful to scientifically control the catalytic degradation and oxidative decomposition of the resin in a molten state.


Application field


1. Tap water piping project Because PVC plastic pipe has the advantages of acid and alkali resistance, corrosion resistance, no rust, no scaling, protection of water quality, and prevention of secondary pollution of water quality, it is strongly advocated to produce environmentally friendly products today, as a kind of The ideal "green building materials" to protect human health has been widely applied throughout the country and the world.


2. Water-saving irrigation piping project, the use of PVC spray drip irrigation system can save 50%-70% compared with ordinary irrigation, while saving fertilizer and pesticide dosage, crop yield can be increased by 30%-80%. Today, China lacks water resources and agricultural production is lagging behind, which has great social benefits for promoting the development of water-saving agricultural production in China.


3. Construction piping engineering.


4. UPVC plastic pipe is resistant to acid and alkali and corrosion, and many chemical plants are used as infusion piping. Others are also used in sinking engineering, medical piping engineering, mineral salt water transportation piping engineering, and electrical piping engineering.


5. UPVC plastic pipe has excellent insulation ability and is also widely used as a post and telecommunications cable conduit.


PVC drain pipe features


1. Excellent physical and chemical properties. Pipes and fittings made of PVC are corrosion resistant, have high impact strength and low fluid resistance. It is resistant to aging and has a long service life. It is an ideal material for building drainage and chemical discharge.


2. Light and practical, easy to install. The weight is only 1/7 of the same diameter cast iron pipe, which can greatly speed up the project schedule and reduce construction costs.


3. The inner wall is smooth, the drainage is smooth, and the pipeline is not easy to block. The inspection port is unique in design, easy to check and operate, and does not require anything.


4. Saving construction costs. The use of UPV tubes is less expensive than the use of cast iron tubes of the same specification and lower maintenance costs.
