Schedule 40 CPVC

cpvc-660x480

CPVC is similar to PVC, but is treated with chlorine to create a material that is more heat and highly resistant to acids, alkalis, alcohols, and many other corrosive materials. Our Corzan® CPVC compound also has impressive fire resistant qualities-meaning it is very difficult to ignite. This may be useful in applications that require ignited heat sources or in situations that are prone to fire. The wide range of joining options that include solvent welding, threaded and mechanical connections make it ideal for easy, error free installations.

Our Schedule 40 CPVC pipes exhibit exceptional quality that you’ve come to expect from GF Harvel and are simultaneously light, flexible, tough, and have exceptionally corrosion resistance. With CPVC’s ability to withstand higher temperatures than PVC, CPVC is used in applications where the temperatures may reach 200°F (93°F) and can typically be found in numerous applications including chemical delivery systems, hot and cold potable water distribution systems, chemical processing systems, corrosive waste systems, vacuum lines and many other lower pressure applications that require a low-cost alternative to Schedule 80 systems. GF Harvel also offers various pipe end options including: belled end, gasketed, roll grooved, and threaded as well as custom dimensions and lengths.

Schedule 40 CPVC is light gray in color and the pipes have the largest inner diameter of the two schedules offered.
