Plastic materials are spreading fast in all aspects of everyday life. The excellent mechanical, chemical and physical properties of the new polymers are a guarantee of success in all kinds of applications.
The 80's marked the start of an exponential spread of plastic materials in the piping industry. They are currently used for intake and outtake pipes, as well as for heating and conditioning installations, thanks to a growing acceptance from clients.
PROTECNAVI installs polypropylene random copolymer pipes and accessories with a high quality and reliability that guarantee optimal service life, safety and energy saving levels in all fields of application, both in industrial and building areas.
These last years have witnessed a constant evolution in thermoplastic materials.
Today, thermoplastic piping systems can solve some of the problems posed by metal systems, increasing the installation's service life.
Limited condensation and thermal dispersion
Requires less anti-condensation and thermal insulation thickness, saving costs
No surface protection required Corrosive fluid transport
Less internal surface roughness
Less fouling. In some cases, less diameter required
Allows water circulation at high speeds without erosion issues
Pipes increase their width with volume modifications due to fluid freezing
High resistance to chemical agents
Suitable for almost any level of water hardness. Resistant to chemicals with pH ranging from 1 to 14
Parasitic current resistance
No risk of puncturing due to environmental parasitic currents
Lower installation noise levels
High acoustic insulation and acoustic absorption capabilities, dampening sound effects
Shorter installation times
Heat welding systems require shorter assembly and loading times
Fully compatible with statutory legionella treatment methods
Completely environment-friendly and free of halogens
Recyclable. The absence of halogens improves its safety against fire
Its lower thermal conductivity improves SHW, HVAC and heating efficiency
Excellent performance in resistance tests, both for profiles and joints
Features a visibly lower linear expansion allowing a larger fluid flow
