CPVCChlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride (CPVC)
CPVC provides advantages in elevated temperature environments due to its high heat-distortion temperature. This enables the fabrication of end items or parts for use in applications with service temperatures up to 200°F. GF Harvel CPVC products also have exceptional fire resistance properties providing end products with low flame spread and smoke generation characteristics. GF Harvel utilizes CPVC materials provided by Noveon, Inc. for the production of CPVC machining shapes. This ensures consistency and compatibility of GF Harvel shapes with other end products produced from CPVC compounds such as pipe, duct, fittings and sheet. Standard industrial grade CPVC shapes are light gray in color.

Various configurations of machining and joining shapes produced from specialty 4910 CPVC are also available. GF Harvel 4910 shapes offer exceptional fire performance characteristics, and can be used in the joining of duct, sheet and other components for use in the construction of wet benches and other units used in clean room work- stations. GF Harvel 4910 products are off-white in color signifying cleanliness. Contact factory for availability.
