PVC/CPVC

Weldable plastics resist chemicals, corrosion and moisture at low temperatures.

At lower temperatures, economical PVC offers a combination of excellent chemical resistance, high mechanical strength, and low moisture absorption. CPVC increases both weather and temperature resistance, expanding design versatility. Both materials are easily vacuum formed, thermoformed and fabricated, and can be glued, cemented, welded and varnished.
