Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride Properties

Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride



Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride is a high heat, corrosion resistant chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC) material. Its most common application is in single-family and multifamily hot and cold water distribution systems. Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride can also be used for residential fire sprinkler systems, gray water systems, reclaimed water, chemical drain waste systems, industrial processing, and commercial and high-rise construction. It can withstand corrosive water at temperatures greater than PVC, typically 40°C to 50°C (104°F to 122°F) or higher.It can be used (depending on chemistry) up to 180º F. Corzan® CPVC conforms to ASTM-D-1784-95 Class 23447-B (formerly Type IV Grade 1) and is manufactured without fillers or plasticizers. It exhibits excellent fire properties UL-94V-0 and flame spread less than 20 per ASTM E-84.
