Where It’s Used: Chemical Processing

Chemical processing plants create some of the most challenging industrial environments. The combination of aggressive chemicals and high temperatures can compromise the long-term integrity of most piping materials, ducting, tank lining and molded parts, causing corrosion, process leaks and premature failures that lead to costly replacements.

Highly durable Corzan® CPVC stands up to the immense challenges of chemical processing plants over the long-term better than any other piping material, metallic or non-metallic, without the higher costs of lined carbon steel, HDPE or FRP.

Corzan CPVC is inert to most acids, bases and salts, and aliphatic hydrocarbons, so it can reliably handle aggressive chemicals such as:

  • Sodium hypochlorite
  • Hydrochloric acid
  • Sulfuric acid
  • Phosphoric acid
  • Sodium chloride
  • Caustic soda
