CPVC can withstand corrosive water at temperatures greater than PVC, typically by 40-50 °C (104-122 °F) or higher, contributing to its popularity as a material for water-piping systems in residential and commercial construction. CPVC maximal operating temperature peaks at 200 °F (93 °C).
Specification: CPVC is readily workable, including machining, welding, and forming. Because of its excellent corrosion resistance at elevated temperatures, CPVC is ideally suited for self-supporting constructions where temperatures up to 200 °F (93 °C) are present. The ability to bend, shape, and weld CPVC enable its use in a wide variety of processes and applications. It exhibits fire-retardant properties.
