Although it is derived from PVC and thus shares some of that material’s characteristics, CPVC is a distinct polymer. It is a high-temperature-grade chlorinated polyvinyl chloride that is resistant to corrosion, heat, and chemicals. CPVC can be easily machined with standard woodworking tools and can be fiberglass-backed, hot-air welded with rod, cemented (solvent bonded), riveted, and threaded. This material is useful for a wide range of applications, from chemical processing to metal finishing.
