Material CPVC Pipe

Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride (CPVC) is a thermoplastic pipe and fitting system made with CPVC compounds meeting the requirements of ASTM Class 23447 as defined in ASTM Specification D1784. While PVC pipe can only be used with cold water systems, CPVC service temperatures can be extended by 60-70°F to a maximum limit of 200-210°F, allowing use in both hot and cold potable water distribution.  CPVC is also used in for corrosive fluid handling in industry, and fire suppression systems.

CPVC systems from ¼ to 2 inches in size are available in copper tube size (CTS) dimensions and sold in straight lengths and coils (smaller diameter piping) and capable of handling applications up to 100 psi and 180°F. For systems above 2 inches, Sch 40 or Sch 80 piping is available up to a maximum diameter of 24 inches.

The primary method of joining CPVC piping systems is solvent-cementing.
