Corzan CPVC offers an ideal alternative to the rising costs, and overall volatility, of steel. Along with more stable pricing, a Corzan CPVC system costs less and is faster and easier to install than traditional metal systems, with no torches required. CPVC pipes and fittings install using one of two straightforward, affordable methods: solvent-welding or mechanical joining. Unlike metallic materials, CPVC will not corrode over the life of the system and requires no additives or maintenance to prevent corrosion. Pipe and fittings made from Corzan CPVC are inherently less prone to biofilm growth than other materials due to their exceptionally smooth internal surface; in addition, they can withstand ASHRAE 188 Guideline decontamination without risk of damage.
