Chlorinated Poly Vinyl Chloride (CPVC) is a thermoplastic pipe and fitting material made with CPVC compounds. CPVC can handle temperatures up to 200°F (90°C). Due to its smooth internal surface, CPVC pipes can be used to carry water for long distances without worrying about pressure loss, pitting or scaling. It is also energy efficient, as it performs excellently under tough conditions, and is very easy to handle and install. CPVC can withstand corrosive water at temperatures greater than PVC, typically 40°C to 50°C (104°F to 122°F) or higher, contributing to its popularity as a material for water piping systems in residential as well as commercial construction.
- Unaffected by chlorine present in the potable water supply
- Corrosion resistant
- CPVC is significantly more ductile, allowing greater flexure and crush resistance
- Available sizes : SDR – 11, 13.5; OD – 20 to 40 mm
