ABSTRACT
Copper and other metallic materials once dominated the plumbing industry. However, since they are subject to increased scrutiny as budgets and construction schedules get tighter, a high-performance rigid thermoplastic was introduced. Chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC) offers numerous advantages over metallic systems, with a primary advantage being its corrosion resistance. This allows for a superior lifecycle cost performance, eliminates the problem of corrosion particles entering the drinking water, and results in reduced project costs.
