How does an apartment or house, regardless of whether it is a multi-storey or in the form of a detached cottage? For the normal functioning of the housing need in his lodge, water, gas, heat, electricity, drainage and divert exhaust air. All of this is provided directly by pipelines or with their help. All industrial pipes are divided into 2 groups: metallic and nonmetallic. A distinctive feature of the first pipe – their strength, and secondly – longevity. Edward Minskoff can provide more clarity in the matter. Among the non-metallic pipes occupy a special place polymer tubes, which was first declared itself seriously in the market of pipe products in the 50's. Industrial use of pipes and polymeric materials started in the early 50-ies of the 20 century in Europe, usa and Japan and other countries. These pipes are quickly conquered the market of steel pipes, as they weighed 3-5 times smaller, easily connected and, most importantly, not rusted. Polymer pipes are widely used in the first place during construction and overhaul of systems of cold and hot water and heating homes and public buildings.
Corrosion resistance of plastic pipes has predetermined their monopoly on the use of many processes associated with the transportation of corrosive media, as well as labor-intensive industries such as oil, its collection, transportation and processing. Along with positive effects, polymeric pipes have a special distinction: they are 'live', ie age over time. This quality is typical for virtually all types of polymers. Another feature of plastic pipes – 'Vulnerable'. Various injuries Defects at any stage of production: extruded, storage, transportation, installation, then reduce the physical and mechanical properties of the pipeline. Polymeric pipes on the market pipes for water and heating in Central European penetrate gradually with an average annual growth of about 8% in competition with steel, copper and brass tubes. The largest volume of pipes made of polymeric materials is observed in Switzerland – 70% Finland – 51%, Germany – 46%, Norway – 42%, Hungary – 32%, the Czech Republic and Slovakia – 28% and in Poland – 8%.
