Sustainability is a major reason why engineers and building owners choose POLYMELT piping systems. Our products are designed to have a very low impact on the environment, from manufacturing through installation and even recycling. It’s all part of our company-wide commitment to PURE PROGRESS.
Metal pipes often corrode or scale, reducing energy efficiency. Eventually, they will need to be replaced, shortening the life of other building components that must be removed for the retrofit. Corroded pipes can leak waste water and other substances and cause mold, reducing indoor air quality. POLYMELT polypropylene (PP-R) pipe eliminates these issues and can help contribute to green building programs, such as LEED.
Our PP-R pipes are non-leaching and fully recyclable, so no piping material is wasted. PP-R doesn’t corrode or scale, so POLYMELT piping systems are capable of outlasting the buildings they are installed in. Our heat-fused connections last even longer, without leaks and with virtually zero maintenance. But it isn’t just the innovative, long-lasting properties of PP-R that make POLYMELT a sustainable solution.
Made in Germany, our pipes conform to the strictest production standards for sustainability, using the lowest impact manufacturing processes available. PP-R is relatively clean to make, requiring only two steps of refinement after the petroleum cracking. Only three percent of petroleum is used for plastics production, giving it a much lower impact than the mining and smelting operations used to created metals.
If you’re looking for a lightweight, durable piping solution that’s longer-lasting than metal, produce a lower impact on the environment, and are fully recyclable, contact POLYMELT today. Our best-in-class customer support allows us to work with you to customize the ideal piping system for your mechanical needs. We even offer a 10-year warranty on all of our products.
