More than 1 billion feet of CPVC was installed in plumbing systems globally in 2017. CPVC has established itself as the material of choice for hot and cold water plumbing systems.
However, not all CPVC is the same. Only FlowGuard® CPVC pipes and fittings offer proven performance backed by 60 years of successful installations and can call itself the pioneer in CPVC technology.
Our first plumbing systems were installed more than 55 years ago, and many of those are still in use today and working reliably.
Superior Material Properties
FlowGuard Plus systems are the only complete CPVC pipes and fitting systems made from materials pressure rated by the Plastic Pipe Institute®. Our CPVC pipes and CPVC fittings are tested to the highest performance standards and consistently outperforms other CPVC materials by a significant margin including:
- 18-92% higher sustained pressure resistance at elevated temperatures
- 33-80% higher resistance to impact fracture
- Fittings last up to 4X longer at elevated temperatures and pressures
FlowGuard Plus CPVC meets or exceeds the necessary safety, performance, and quality assurance requirements of key international approval agencies, including:
- ASTM International
- NSF International
- Water Regulations Advisory Scheme (WRAS)
- British Standards (BSI)
- Saudi Arabian Standard Organization (SASO)
