EPD document prepared for Fırat Plastik PPRC Pipes with registration number S-P-06756 has been registered and published in EPD Turkey and The International EPD System. Registered EPD document applies to all global markets.
Based on their advantages such as lightness and smoothness, luminous and slippy interior faces, calcification-free and stain-free nature, hygienic and easy-to-fit structure; FIRAT PPRC Pipes are produced from the raw material of PP-R (Polypropylene Random Copolymer) in compliance with TS 9937, TS EN ISO 15874, DIN 8077, DIN 8078, DVGW W544 standards superseded galvanized pipes and became an indispensable solution in today’s interior building cold and hot water installations. The most important characteristic of this raw material is the high resistance against heat and chemical effects. Thanks to this resistance, FIRAT PPRC Pipes and Fittings made of raw material of PP-R are successfully utilized in cold and hot water instillations.
Since monomer structure of the raw material PP-R forms a haphazard chain, it does not allow any biological material to settle inside its structure and thus, FIRAT PPRC Pipes and Fittings made of raw material PP-R achieve color, taste and smell-free superior qualities. FIRAT PPRC Pipes and Fittings with aluminium foil are designed particularly for installations with water passage. Since aluminium folio used in FIRAT PPRC Pipes and Fittings five-fold reduces the thermos expansion coefficient of pipe, it impedes heat-based expansion and sag. Additionally, it also restricts oxygen passage thanks to its non-porous surface.
