While considering pipes for both commercial and domestic purposes, PVC pipes have nearly replaced the conventional metal pipes. However, metal pipes are still in use in the industrial sectors where PVC pipes do not serve the purpose in the best way. PVC pipes are the white plastic pipes that are most commonly used for plumbing and drainage. PVC is the acronym for Poly Vinyl Chloride. The reason behind the popularity of PVC pipes is its strength, durability, easy installation and budget friendly features. PVC is a thermoplastic material that is moulded into various shapes in order to create pipes, fittings, valves and other liquid handling supplies. Taking a fact into consideration, PVC and CPVC pipes are often used interchangeably. But there are certain differences between them.
CPVC is the acronym for Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride and is the chlorination process that changes the chemical makeup and the properties of the plastic. Some of the common uses of PVC and CPVC pipes include commercial uses such as housing underground wires, farm irrigation systems, plumbing, and drainage and sewage infrastructure; residential uses such as home irrigation systems, residential plumbing, drainage and sewage infrastructure; recreational uses such as makeshift tents and shaded seated areas, frames for greenhouses, carports and raised garden beds.
Properties of PVC and CPVC Pipes
The PVC and CPVC pipes possess some most considered properties while working with them that are discussed below:
Both the PVC and CPVC pipes resist corrosion and degradation from the chemicals that are classified as an acid, alkali or inorganic material.
Both types of the pipes are impact resistant, durable and are safe for use with potable water.
The extra chlorine content of CPVC pipes helps to prevent bacteria from developing in the pipes.
The maximum functional temperatures of PVC and CPVC pipes are 140°F and 200°F respectively.
Each of the pipes require primers and solvent cement that is designed specifically to be used with the pipes while the type of solvent cement may vary based on the application the pipe will be used for.
Both the pipes are available in plain end and bell end.
Both PVC and CPVC pipes come is schedule 40 and schedule 80 thicknesses.
Differences between PVC and CPVC Pipes
As already stated, PVC and CPVC pipes are often used interchangeably but there are certain differences that just make them cousin. The main difference or the biggest difference that keeps the interchangeability at bay is not visible at all from the exterior but does exist in the molecular level. As the name suggests, PVC is Poly Vinyl Chloride while CPVC pipes has an extra feature that is being chlorinated. CPVC pipes are altered by a free radical chlorination reaction that effectively increases the chlorine content of the material and are thermoplastic that is moulded into many of the same products as PVC.
