Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is one of the most broadly used thermoplastic materials, common to many industries. PVC is highly resistant to acids, alkalis, alcohols, and many other corrosive materials. The wide range of joining options that include solvent welding, threaded and mechanical connections make it ideal for easy, error free installations.
The Schedule 40 PVC piping system is manufactured from custom blends of PVC compounds with unique physical properties desirable for piping applications. GF’s Harvel PVC Schedule 40 piping can handle a variety of applications, temperatures and pressure requirements.

The rigid PVC material used for Schedule 40 PVC ensures corrosion-resistant pipelines over the entire service life of the system. Corrosion-related leaks are a thing of the past.
The Schedule 40 PVC system provides high corrosion and temperature resistance. Additionally, it offers material savings for use in lower pressure piping applications.
The Schedule 40 PVC system can be easily joined by way of the proven two-step solvent welding process.
The rigid PVC material for the Schedule 40 system withstands pressures well and is temperature-resistant up to 140°F (60°C).
