CPVC piping (chlorinated polyvinyl chloride) is an ideal material for use in the construction environment; a popular choice for industrial applications.
In India, where the climate is often both hot and humid, FlowGuard Plus is a valuable asset for companies looking to enable efficient flow control and maintain it for the long term.
Let's take a closer look at some of the additional benefits of using FlowGuard Plus CPVC pipes and fittings in India and why it is the world's largest selling CPVC pipe.
Why CPVC pipes?
CPVC pipe offers many benefits compared to alternative piping materials, including:
- Thermal resistance - CPVC can handle significantly higher temperatures than metal or alternative plastic pipes without warping or melting
- Corrosion resistance - ideal for harsh environments with high levels of chemical exposure
- Lower installed cost - thanks to its light weight and fast installation
- Compatibility - can be used with a wide range of connectors, hangers and fittings
- Molecularly fused joints - a leak-free system with higher flow capacity to alternatives
