PVCu is a Polyvinylchloride without plasticizers that is extremely suitable for very wide applications, such as:

  • Chemical installations
  • Portable water applications
  • Food and beverage industry
  • Sanitary and swimming pool technology
  • Irrigation

The main advantages of PVCu are:

  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Easy installation
  • Durability
  • Low maintenance

Pressure and temperature diagram

PVCu has very good properties in a temperature range of 0°C to 60°C. At lower temperatures the impact resistance clearly decreases.

Figure 1

Figure 1 shows the maximum operating pressure for PN16, PN10 and PN6 fittings. This information is based on a lifespan of 50 years with a safety factor of 2.5.

Chemical Resistance

The chemical resistance of PVCu depends on the conditions of use and must be assessed for each situation.

Dimensions and standards PVCu

The fittings correspond to the following standards:

  • DIN 8063
  • ISO 727
  • KIWA nr. BRL-K 504
