Excellent chemical resistance.
PVC-U is basically inert to most inorganic bases, acids, saline solutions and paraffinic/aliphatic hydrocarbons. However, it is not recommended for use with polar organic solvent, including chlorinated and aromatic types.
The unique molecular structure grants a low coefficient of thermal conductivity.
λ = 0,15 W/m°C according to ASTM C177. It virtually eliminates condensation and offers superior heat retention, reducing heat loss through piping walls.
Low permeability to oxygen and reduced water absorption.
0,1% at 23°C according to ASTM D 570.
Good resistance to ageing.
Thanks to the chemical and physical properties of the PVC-U resin.
All components are suitable for conveying potable water.
The basic PVC-U resin used for manufacturing fittings is NSF approved.
The material has excellent mechanical characteristics and good impact strength.
These properties make PVC-U suitable for high service pressures. Depending on the fitting, pressure ratings up to PN 16 at 20°C are available.
PVC-U materials have good fire performance.
The flash ignition temperature is 399°C and flame persists only in extreme conditions, e.g. if the oxygen concentration is two times higher than the atmospheric one, or only in the presence of an external flame source. Limiting Oxygen Index: 45% Class UL 94 rating: V0.
