CPVC (Chlorinated Polvinylchloride)

Chlorinated PVC Resin


CPVC (Chlorinated Polvinylchloride) is a thermoplastic produced by chlorination of PVC (polyvinyl chloride) resin. With similar mechanical properties to PVC, CPVC is significantly more ductile.

Chemically, CPVC maintains its properties in corrosive water at temperatures up to 120°F (49°C) greater than PVC and the material is popular for water piping systems and replacing metal pipes in corrosive conditions.

It’s important to note that although it is very difficult to ignite CPVC, the incineration of CPVC can result in dioxins.
