CPVC (Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride) Type IV Grade 1, Cell Class 23447 (min.) per ASTM D1784

This material’s physical properties (at 73°F or 23°C) and chemical resistance are very similar to those of PVC. Its major advantage over PVC is the ability to handle hot corrosive liquids in service temperatures up to 180°F (82°C).  Plast-O-Matic uses NSF Listed CPVC materials in the manufacture of its products.

CPVC is joined by solvent cementing, threading, or flanging. It must be done by a professional, properly trained in joining CPVC.

Please note that Corzan CPVC is incompatible with a number of popular pipe joint compounds; it is essential to investigate compatibility. Plast-O-Matic does not guarantee this information.
