Is PVC the Right Option for Your Industrial Pipe Systems?
With so many types of industrial plastics to choose from, you need a PVF supplier you can trust to help you make the correct choice between PVC and CPVC pipe. Having the appropriate material to handle high pressures and temperatures and corrosive chemicals improves worker safety, lowers the risk of system failures, and reduces the costs of downtime and repairs,
An attentive, supportive CPVC pipe supplier helps you get the right pipe for the right job.
When PVC isn’t enough, American Stainless Provides the Gold Standard in CPVC
Heavy-duty plastics play a major role in modern industrial pipe infrastructure, combining light weight and ease of handling with durability, corrosion resistance, and high temperature and pressure ratings. Choosing the right plastic makes all the difference for your pipe systems, and when PVC alone doesn’t meet your high standards, American Stainless connects you to high-quality CPVC pipe and tube from leading names in PVC and CPVC PVF manufacturers.

The Difference CPVC Makes for Industrial Pipe
While PVC is versatile, lightweight, durable, and cost-effective, PVC treated with chlorine produces even more resilient pipe infrastructure for heavy-duty industrial applications.
Enhanced Temperature Resistance
While PVC pipe can withstand operating temperatures up to around 140°F, CPVC’s temperature rating is 200°F. The ability to maintain its integrity under high temperatures makes CPVC pipe especially suitable for hot water applications and steam.
Improved Chemical Resistance
PVC is fairly chemical resistant, but CPVC pipe offers enhanced resistance to a much wider range of corrosive chemicals and solvents without degrading, making it especially suitable for transporting industrial chemicals and acids.
Greater Mechanical Strength
CPVC has greater tensile and compressive strength than PVC, making CPVC pipe exceptionally durable in the face of the higher pressures and mechanical stresses that can be found in industrial operating environments.
CPVC is classified as a self-extinguishing material, and with a much higher ignition temperature than PVC, CPVC provides pipes with greater fire resistance in situations where fire safety is a concern, such as chemical plants and industrial facilities.

Using CPVC for Hot Water and High Pressure Applications
The advantages CPVC holds over PVC pipe for hot water, chemical, and high-pressure steam distribution makes CPVC pipe essential for many production processes in chemical processing, water and wastewater treatment, commercial and industrial HVAC systems, and industrial uses such as:
Hot water, clean steam, and various chemicals all play a crucial role in the production of life-saving pharmaceutical products, making CPVC pipe temperature, pressure, and corrosion resistance especially necessary.
Food and Beverage Processing
CPVC pipe plays a crucial role in distributing hot water, cleaning solution, and various process fluids at elevated temperatures and pressures throughout food and beverage equipment to maintain high hygienic standards for safe consumer products.
Pulp and Paper Milling
Pulping, papermaking, and bleaching all depend on CPVC for hot water, pressurized steam, and chemical transport for various stages in the manufacturing processes, relying on CPVC’s enhanced attributes for reliable performance.
CPVC Pipe in Every Size You Need
From small CPVC pipes to large pipes, size does matter. The right size for your pipes determines flow rate and pressure, ensuring smooth operation of your pipe systems. Carefully matching your new pipe and tube to the dimensions and diameters of your existing infrastructure is essential to preventing leaks, maintaining the right pressure, and ensuring your pipe infrastructure is free of potential safety hazards.
At American Stainless, our locations throughout North and South Carolina are fully stocked with CPVC pipe and tube in every diameter, schedule, size, and thickness your project might call for so you can get your hands on the exact sizes you need in a hurry.
