CPVC pipes or Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride Pipes

Introduction

CPVC pipes

CPVC pipes are made with a thermoplastic known as Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride which were first developed in the late 1950s. Its first commercial production was started in 1959 and the first residential installation was in 1960. CPVC Pipes are manufactured using twin screw extrusion technology. These pipes are joined with fittings using the CPVC solvent cements which make them easy to install.

CPVC pipes are strong and rigid and have proven long term service with the lowest ownership and maintenance costs. They do not corrode and are resistant to scale formation. They are heat resistant to 93° C and are flame retardant. Further CPVC is resistant to chemicals, alcohols, acids, hydrocarbons, bases, etc.

Due to these reasons CPVC has become the material of choice for hot and cold water plumbing in India and many parts of the world.
