Why CPVC Manufacturers Partner With FlowGuard® CPVC
Here's why today's leading manufacturing facilities are choosing FlowGuard® CPVC for potable water piping systems.
Are your building materials holding you back? Industrial applications such as manufacturing are only as good as their raw materials. CPVC (chlorinated polyvinyl chloride) pipe has been engineered to optimise performance in hot and cold water applications at home. Here’s how and why our network of trusted partner manufacturers choose FlowGuard CPVC piping systems.
Why do manufacturers want to work with CPVC?
Partnering with Flowguard CPVC means joining a legacy of water quality that reaches around the world. FlowGuard Pipes and Fittings are recognized as one of the most durable, cost-effective and safe plumbing materials available today; here’s why.
Healthy bacterial resistance
Bioflims, including Legionella and other harmful bacteria, can grow inside residential water pipes. Third party studies show that CPVC piping, such as FlowGuard pipes and fittings consistently demonstrate a lower risk of biofilm formation than PPR.
In outdoor applications, FlowGuard CPVC provides unrivalled UV resistance to support long life. The CPVC compound has been formulated with a significant concentration of both carbon black and titanium dioxide, both of which are excellent ultraviolet blocking agents and help to protect the polymer backbone from the effect of ultraviolet radiation.
Chlorine and chemical resistance
CPVC is formed through a chlorination reaction. FlowGuard CPVC's inherent chlorine resistance protects piping systems from this common additive in water supplies around the world. This inherent immunity helps FlowGuard CPVC to retain its pipe smoothness and corrosion resistance throughout its life.
Manufacturers are under more pressure than ever before to design systems for safety as well as reliability.
FlowGuard CPVC is naturally self-extinguishing, a key fire safety advantage for specifiers as well as property owners.
What does carrying the brand of FlowGuard CPVC offer?
Beyond the wealth of technical, safety and quality assured benefits that CPVC offers as a plumbing material, FlowGuard CPVC as a name in itself carries international recognition and credibility. This transcends local manufacturing and cements our partners as recognized producers of world leading plumbing.
Recognised industry leader
Manufacturers choose FlowGuard CPVC over CPVC alternatives because of its recognition for safe water distribution by leading regional and international water safety standards agencies:
