CPVC Overview

Chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC) is PVC (polyvinyl chloride) that has been chlorinated via a free radical chlorination re- action. This reaction is typically initiated by application of thermal or UV energy utilizing various approaches. In the process, chlorine gas is decomposed into free radical chlorine which is then reacted with PVC in a post-production step, essentially replacing a portion of the hydrogen in the PVC with chlorine. This combination results in material that has higher temperature rating than standard PVC and can also handle more ag- gressive acids and hot water. Also called PVC-C

Technical Specification  PAAS range of CPVC is light grey in colour.  Size range available ¼” – 16”  Temperature range 0-90 Degrees Celsius.  Threaded connection options NPT.  Approvals ASTM D1784, NSF.
