WHAT IS CPVC PIPE?
CPVC (chlorinated polyvinyl chloride) is a strong, durable material that has been successfully used in plumbing applications all over the world for more than 50 years. CPVC pipes and fittings.
Initially, developed by Lubrizol Advanced Materials, CPVC’s inherent chemical resistance, reliability and ability to stand up to high heat. Also, pressure make it an ideal material for residential, commercial and even industrial piping and fire sprinkler systems.
In fact, Idol CPVC residential hot and cold pipe systems installed more than ten years ago are still reliably delivering clean, safe water to families around the planet.
Why CPVC is Ideal for Residential Plumbing Systems
Following are just a few of the reasons why homes around the world trust CPVC pipes and fittings:
Safe, Clean Water Quality: Major international agencies, such as NSF International, tests and approve materials for use in consumable water applications. These approvals ensure that a CPVC potable water system does not transfer any harmful and dangerous products to the drinking water it transports. In the case of Idol CPVC, our material is approved for all potable water systems. Also, our compounds do not contain plasticizers, flame retardants, bio-stabilizers or anti-static agents.
Joint Strength: CPVC pipes and fittings are fused using solvent cement. Solvent cement is a substance that chemically combines pipes to fittings at the molecular level. Unlike glue used in other piping systems, solvent cemented joints become the firm part of the pipe system, and if properly installed do not break apart.
Chlorine Resistance: Chlorine-based disinfectants, especially chlorine dioxide can cause pipe failures in PPR (green pipe), PEX and metallic pipes. Be that as it may, CPVC is unaffected by chlorine. Also, it will never bomb on account of the added substances used to guard your water clean and safe.
Biofilm Resistance: Water distribution systems are ideal for bacterial growth, but CPVC helps to keep the water pure. Various international studies have confirmed that CPVC consistently outperforms copper and all other plastic piping materials. Especially PPR, concerning its ability to resist the formation of biofilms.
Hence, these are the reasons why CPVC is ideal for residential plumbing systems. For more, contact us.
