PPI

The Plastics Pipe Institute (PPI) published a
new guide for the use of chlorinated polyvinyl
chloride (CPVC) piping systems in commercial
buildings. Available on PPI's website, "TN-62:
Suitability and Fitness of CPVC Piping Systems
for Commercial Building Applications" describes
material advantages and capabilities to consider
when designing these systems for commercial
plumbing and mechanical situations.
CPVC is a high-temperature plastic pressure
piping material that was introduced for potable
plumbing applications more than 60 years ago.
Advantages include safety of potable water;
resistance to corrosion, tuberculation and
deposits; chlorine and chloramine resistance; and
toughness to survive job-site installations. Also,
pipes and fittings are joined using solvent cement
or mechanical joints, rather than flame, helping to
prevent accidental fires during construction.
"Many people are not aware of the significant
differences between PVC and CPVC piping
materials," explained Lance MacNevin, P. Eng.,
director of engineering for PPI's Building &
Construction Division. "CPVC is polyvinyl chloride
that has been chlorinated via a free radical
chlorination reaction, initiated by ultraviolet light
during the manufacturing process.
"The chlorine added to PVC gives CPVC higher
temperature performance and improved fire and
corrosion resistance."
