Harvel PVC & CPVC Rod, Bar & Machining Stock

machine-shapes-320X290

GF Harvel's extrusion process provides porosity-free, stress-reduced PVC and CPVC bar, rod, tubing, and angle with optimum physical properties and exacting tolerances - products that consistently machine with ease.  GF Harvel produces stock machining shapes in solid sound, hollow round, hexagonal, square, and rectangular from 1/8" through 12" diameters.  Standard PVC colors include white, gray, black, and clear – with custom colors, sizes, and lengths also available. Standard CPVC shapes are light gray in color. PVC and CPVC machining shapes provide cost-effective solutions for industrial applications and offer excellent chemical and corrosion resistance, mechanical strength, and thermal and electrical properties.

A variety of finished parts and subcomponents can be produced using conventional machining methods such as cutting, boring, drilling, turning and threading.  This provides a means to produce many custom assemblies and fixtures that are not available as extruded or molded items.  Machined components and fixtures can be incorporated into large assemblies or existing systems using standard solvent cementing, heat forming, or hot-air welding techniques, providing material consistency and integration for an entire system.

Typical products produced from extruded shapes include valve bodies and components, strainers, filters, pressure vessels, bulkhead fittings, pump components, bushings, compression fittings, flanges, hangers, headers, hooks, adapters, spacers, caps, sleeves, plugs, stiffeners, hubs, nuts, bolts, rollers, and numerous other mechanical components.
