The Many Industrial Applications of Corzan CPVC

Considering the wide variety of piping needs in the industrial arena, chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC) has proved to be an ideal choice for countless challenging applications for more than 50 years. But,  Corzan's applications extend well beyond piping to include:

  • Fittings
  • Valves
  • Pumps
  • Tower packing
  • Other fluid handling products
  • Sheet and duct products, such as tanks and tank linings
  • Ventilation and vapor scrubbing equipment

The technology of Corzan CPVC results in undeniable product features, such as:

  • High-temperature capability
  • Excellent chemical resistance to a wide range of highly corrosive liquid and vapor environments
  • Resistance to galvanic corrosion
  • Low heat transfer
  • Good electrical insulation properties
  • Light weight material for ease of installation

Fabrication Components

Corzan Industrial Systems components can be fabricated with all of the most common techniques for thermoplastic fabrication, including:

  • Sheet
  • Duct piping
  • Fittings
  • Rod
  • Barstock
  • Welding rod
  • Angle
  • Other profiles

Corzan CPVC Sheet Applications

The superior corrosion resistance and high-temperature performance of Corzan CPVC is available in 48-in. x 96-in. sheets. The excellent fire performance of Corzan CPVC will also be useful in many sheet applications. Sheet products are available in thicknesses ranging from 1/8 in. to 3 in., and are either extruded or compression molded.

The ability to bend, shape, and weld sheets made from Corzan CPVC enables its use in a wide variety of process applications, including tanks, scrubbers, and ventilation systems.

Sheets made from Corzan CPVC can readily be overwrapped with Fiber Reinforced Polyester (FRP), if necessary, and will not require fabric-backing to achieve proper adhesion between the CPVC and FRP.
