Our experts are always available to help you with any questions. For now, let’s get to know a bit more about PVC.
Types of PVC
Again, there are different types of industrial PVC available. All three are easy to form and shape. Type I has a continuous use temperature range of 32 degrees Fahrenheit to 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Type II’s range begins at -4 degrees Fahrenheit and goes up to 140 degrees F, as well. CPVC has the most impressive temperature range, starting at -12 degrees Fahrenheit and going up to 212 degrees F.
PVC Type I is resistant to chemicals and non-flammable, plus it’s able to withstand high impacts. It’s also a low-cost option. It’s considered a great choice for plastic parts and other assemblies. PVC Type II is a standard PVC plastic that’s strong and easy to process. It’s stiff, as well, making it durable, especially when combined with its impact resistance. Type II does well following chemical exposure, but it also does better in cooler temperatures. CPVC is a standard plastic, too. It’s chemically resistant. Its heat distortion temperature is high while its water absorption rate is extremely low.
