CPVC ROD

 

B.I.R.S. Machine & Supply is a distributor of CPVC rod aka "round bar"

 

CPVC Rod Chlorinated polyvinyl chloride is created when PVC homopolymer undergoes a chlorination reaction resulting in additional chlorine atoms on the base molecule. The result is an amorphous polymer similar to PVC in composition with a higher heat distortion temperature. CPVC provides a material with high temperature strength and excellent flammability properties that also exhibits many of the desirable physical characteristics of polyvinyl chloride such as exceptional corrosion resistance and good mechanical properties.

 

CPVC Rod has a high working temperature limit of 200°F or approximately 60°F above that of PVC, which greatly increases the product's application range and makes it advantageous for many aggressive high temperature processing applications such as plating and chemical processing.

 

The chemical inertness and mechanical strength of CPVC products have excellent flammability properties when compared to other plastics and many common building materials. CPVC will not support combustion, is rated as self-extinguishing and has very low flame and smoke characteristics. These unique fire resistance properties enable product applications that are unacceptable for many other plastics, such as use in fire resistant construction and fire sprinkler piping applications.

 

The minimum physical properties of compounds for use to manufacture CPVC are called out in ASTM Standard D1784. Within this standard, the compounds are separated into Cell Classification numbers that reflect the actual minimum physical properties of the compound with regard to impact strength, tensile strength, modulus of elasticity, deflection temperature under load, flammability and chemical resistance. The Cell Classifications called out within this standard help define and establish a basis for selecting and identifying various grades of CPVC compounds for correlation to specific applications.
