The most frequently specified thermoplastic piping material? PVC.
But PVC can’t handle the heat.
Under pressure, the maximum service temperature of PVC is 140F(60C).
This is where CPVC shines.
With a maximum service temperature of 200F (93C), CPVC handles heat with ease.
Even occasional exposure to boiling water (212F/100C) and hot, corrosive liquids!
Best part? NO CORROSION!
