PVC – A Smart Choice

Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) is one of the most broadly used thermoplastics materials common to many industries. GFPS has the whole package for the PVC market. UPVC – Unplasticised Polyvinyl Chloride (UPVC) is highly resistant to acids, alkalis, alcohols, and many other corrosive materials. PVC Schedule 80 applications are frequently used for chilled water systems, chemical processing, industrial plating, and chemical drainage systems. Thermoplastic PVC (polyvinyl chloride) systems are light, flexible, tough and provide exceptional corrosion resistance. CPVC – Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride (CPVC) is simultaneously light, flexible, tough, and exceptionally corrosion-resistant. CPVC is highly resistant to acids, alkalis, alcohols, and many other corrosive materials. With its ability to withstand higher temperatures than PVC applications, CPVC is used in media temperatures up to 210°F (intermittently) and can typically be found in hot water systems, hot acid distribution, and waste systems. For both UPVC and CPVC, because of these and other properties of a high quality engineered thermoplastic, the savings that can be realized in initial installation and continuing maintenance costs are...
