Chemical Resistance

Corzan® CPVC Stands Up to the Harshest Chemicals

No miracle material exists that is resistant to every chemical in the world. But only Corzan® CPVC gives you the comprehensive data you need to determine whether Corzan CPVC will be suitable for your application.

Corzan CPVC and Aggressive Chemicals

One of the most attractive attributes of Corzan CPVC is its resistance to corrosive chemicals – the same chemicals that can degrade and reduce the service life of many metals. In industrial applications, this corrosion can potentially cause expensive maintenance, disruption of operations and property-damaging leaks in these systems. Corzan CPVC can accommodate wide pH swings in the fluids it transports.

Corzan CPVC provides superior, long-term resistance to corrosive chemicals, seawater and demineralized water, even at high temperatures. In fact, Corzan CPVC effectively stands up to most acids, bases and salts. It can also reliably handle aggressive chemicals such as:

  • Hypochlorite.
  • Caustic soda.
  • Sulfuric acid.
  • Chlorine gas.
  • Hydrogen sulfide.
  • Alum.
