PPR =Polypropylene Random Copolymer Type 3
-PP-R pipes is made with reference to the standard of DIN8077/8078 of Germany.
-There are three general types of polypropylene: homopolymer, random copolymer, and block copolymer. The comonomer used is typically ethylene. Ethylene-propylene rubber or EPDM added to polypropylene homopolymer increases its low temperature impact strength. Randomly polymerized ethylene monomer added to polypropylene homopolymer decreases the polymer crystallinity and makes the polymer more transparent.

Underground heating system
Conveyor of industrial water and chemical materials
Sanitary and pure water pipelines
Hot water recycling system
Compressed air pipelines
Drink manufacturing and conveying system
Other industrial and agricultural pipelines
-Polypropylene random copolymers are thermoplastic resins produced through the polymerization of propylene, with ethylene links introduced in the polymer chain. The resins possess a broad range of characteristics and are used in a wide range of applications.

It is a co-extruded polypropylene pipe .. the co-extrusion can be other plastics or even metals or fiber casings etc.... its a means to add other properties to finnished pipes mostly for improvements in expansion and modulas... ie to make a pipe that doesn't sag especially at higher temperatures. Co extrusion over say copper gives a product that doesn't corrode but is able to not sag in say hot water service and have properties like the metal

Polypropylene well known as PPR pipes & Fittings one of the most chemically resistant polymers. Below you will see the chemical resist-
ance of PP-R products according to DIN 53756; the chemical resistance related with composition, qual-
ity condition concentration, time of affection and temperature of material.Source(s): https://sterlinggreenfitting.com
