PVC

(Rigid Vinyl / CPVC /Poly Vinyl Chloride )

pvc-pipeRigid Vinyl products offer an excellent blend of physical properties, low cost, and ease of fabrication. Use in the Corrosion Resistant markets extensively. Most familiar as household sprinkler pipe, but a work horse in the industrial market in large sheet and rod. Most common trade names: Boltaron®, Geon®, Vintec®, Corzan® and others. Still not sure PVC is the proper material for your application, consult our free Plastic Materials Selection Guide.

Why use PVC in your applications:

  • High Impact Strength Material
  • Exceptionally Corrosion Resistant
  • Relative Low Cost
  • Bond-able and Machinable
  • Self – Extinguishing Characteristics
  • Good Overall Physical Properties
  • Excellent Flame Retardant Material – UL 94 V-0
  • Flame Spread under 20 per ASTM-E-84
  • Exceptional Chemical Resistance
  • Extremely Durable and Impact Resistant
  • Unsurpassed Bonding and Welding Properties
  • Conforms to ASTM-D-1784-99 Class 12454-B (formerly Type 1 Grade 1)

Applications – Frequently used in:

  • Bond-able and/or Weldable Parts
  • Tough, rigid and impact resistant Pieces
  • Chemical and FR rated Containers and Tanks
  • Fluid Handling Equipment, Especially Chemical
  • Manifolds and Fixtures – Bondable with sprinkler Pipe

Type 1PVC (Poly Vinyl Chloride) is most often used in structural applications where maximum moisture and chemical resistance is necessary. This high impact gray PVC sheet conforms to ASTM D-1784 (formerly type I / grade 1) and is manufactured without the use of plasticizers or fillers so it has an excellent fire resistance rating of UL-94V-O.
