Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)

PVC is a rigid thermoplastic that provides good value with low cost. It has exceptional chemical resistance, dimensional stability, low water absorption, and superior resistance to weathering and sunlight. It is temperature resistant up to 150 degrees Fahrenheit.

PVC and CPVC (Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride) possess an unusually favorable combination of properties that make them resistant to hundreds of normally corrosive solutions and gases, making PVC an effective and economical material for a wide range of industrial applications. CPVC can withstand a higher temperature up to 230 degrees Fahrenheit.

Caution

N/A PVC and CPVC piping systems are not recommended for compressed air lines. Improper installation, especially poor cementing technique, can lead to an abrupt release of the tremendous stored energy. Shattering of pipe and fittings is then apt to occur at directional changes and at points where the system is rigidly restrained due to the instantaneous whipping action imparted by the escaping air. Internal surface cracks, due to the stress, can be initiated which will tend to propagate and cause shattering, hairline or pin hole cracks over a period of time. There is also evidence that certain additives to system lubricants will initiate internal stress cracking which will again lead to similar failure over extended periods of time. Maximum pressures up to 15 psi developed by single stage blowers for non-combustible gases are acceptable, and are not considered compressed air or compressed gases.

Tough, abrasion resistant tubing with spiral steel wire reinforcement incorporated within the flexible PVC wall. Made from non-toxic ingredients conforming to FDA standards. Glass like clarity with mirror-smooth surface for outstanding visual flow characteristics. Handles both positive and negative pressures. Kink and crush resistant, too.

A spiral reinforced PVC suction tubing that is lighter than ply- wrapped rubber and other similar hoses. Resists impact, crushing and kinking. Smooth interior produces low friction loss permitting maximum flow. Also available in an oil resistant grade. NewFlex is a registered trademark of New Age Industries.

A lightweight, flexible as rubber unreinforced PVC tubing that is also tough and abrasion resistant. Made from non-toxic ingredients conforming to FDA and USDA standards, it does not impart a taste or odor. Has glass-like clarity with mirror-smooth surface. Provides outstanding flow characteristics.
