Advantages and Disadvantages of PVC coated Copper Pipes

Advantages:

  • Corrosion Resistance: Offers effective anti-corrosion covering as well and increases the pipes’ durability.
  • Durability: Increases the overall durability of the pipes by protecting them from physical damage.
  • Insulation: Provides an extra layer of insulation and decreases heat loss in the HVAC and plumbing systems.
  • Safety: Makes it free from electrical conductivity which can be risky for various needs.
  • Aesthetic Appeal: Offered in multiple colors, helping the visual appeal of installations.

Disadvantages:

  • Cost: Normally higher than the non-coated copper pipes that do not have the PVC layer.
  • Installation Complexity: This might be more difficult to install, as you may need some specialized fittings and equipment.
  • Thermal Expansion: Premature aging of PVC coating may not handle thermal expansion as much as bare copper.
  • Chemical Sensitivity: It might not be compatible with some chemicals that can deteriorate PVC.
  • Repair Difficulty: Repairing difficult when damaged since the PVC coating makes it hard to access the copper pipe.
