The raw material used to produce Alfaidro pipes and fittings is a random polypropylene with high molecular weight, characterized by high impact resistance and workability, even to temperatures below 0°C that, together with a high long term heat stabilization, make Alfaidro system particularly suitable for applications requiring high resistance to temperature and pressure. Both raw material and components are suitable for drinking water, absolutely atoxic, incapable of affecting the taste or flavour, they comply with the prescriptions of many national and international sanitary regulation (see below for more details). Moreover the special pigmentation of pipes and fittings makes them opaque, avoiding light from entering and preventing the microbiological growth.
A complete range of pipes, fittings, valves and accessories allow to carry out the installation without any problem, in a reduced time compared to a traditional system and with maximum quality; finally Alfaidro System offers a wide range of flanged, grooved and threaded adaptors for connections to equipments and other types of pipe.
Plastica Alfa has been manufacturing and selling worldwide Alfaidro PPR pipes and fittings for more than 25 years as these stand out for reliability and a very complete range.
The development of the range is characterized by the composite pipes in PPR-PPGF-PPR – Alfaidro Faser – and multilayer PPR-Al-PPR – Alfaidro Aluminium pipes. Thanks to their dimensional stability, these are best suited for heating and cooling systems, compressed air systems and various industrial applications. Moreover these can be joined with the whole range of Alfaidro fittings using the traditional welding techniques.
ALFAIDRO PP-RCT is the latest generation of PPR pipes produced with a polymer showing an increased resistance to long-term temperature, granting equal mechanical performance with a smaller thickness and thus less weight, higher water flow and lower pressure drop.
