Water supply is not the same across the entire landscape. Aggressive water comes with its challenges of causing corrosion and reducing longevity of plumbing systems. Leaky water pipes cause molding in home walls and the entire piping system needs to be replaced if the water system is found to be corroded. By using CPVC pipes and fittings in the construction stage, this problem can be easily circumvented. They are widely used in water and sanitary systems for hot and cold water distribution. The inner surface of a CPVC pipe remains smooth over the years and it does not collect mineral deposits. Spectra CPVC plumbing system comes from a trusted brand and has a long lifespan.

Why use CPVC or Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride for plumbing installation?
CPVC is preferred over PVC for plumbing systems as it can withstand temperatures as high as 200oF, whereas PVC cannot be used in applications with over 140o F in accordance with the ASTM standard. CPVC and PVC are similar in many ways except in CPVC, the chlorine content is highly increased by way of a free radical chlorination reaction. CPVC is considered safe for the transport and use of potable water that may be used for drinking, cooking, and bathing.
Why use Spectra CPVC Pipes
Spectra’s CPVC pipes ensure a long lifespan of plumbing systems in residential and commercial projects. They are available in two different thicknesses, SDR 11 and SDR 13.5.
Spectra CPVC Pipe Fittings
Spectra’s CPVC pipe fittings are high quality premium fittings made with 100% automated processes. Our products ensure a smooth water flow even in case of extreme pressure drops. Spectra CPVC pipe fitting (threaded and non-threaded) product specifications are listed below.
Features of Spectra CPVC Pipes
Easy & Quick Installation
Spectra CPVC plumbing fittings are easy to install because of their light weight and shape. These pipes are also handy for machining, welding and forming. This means less time and energy involved in setting up and installation.
The compounds used in Spectra CPVC pipe and product range are lead-free. This makes Spectra pipes an environmentally friendly choice for water potability and plumbing systems.
Spectra CPVC plumbing systems are unaffected by degradation from ultraviolet rays, hence keeping water supply hygienic and safe.
Low Thermal Conductivity
Spectra CPVC pipes can withstand temperatures of upto 200o F or 93o C. They are considered energy conserving due their insulating properties. They do not allow heat to escape, hence are perfect for bathroom plumbing. Hot water can be safely transported in CPVC pipes and fittings due to the low thermal expansion and low thermal conductivity of CPVC. This makes Spectra CPVC pipes and fittings ideal for hot & cold water distribution.pipes and fittings ideal for hot & cold water distribution.
Excellent Chemical & Corrosion Resistance
Using Spectra CPVC plumbing system will prevent growth like bacteria, fungi, algae and rust. Spectra’s CPVC water pipes are free from corrosion from chemicals present in water.
Long-Life CPVC Pipes
Spectra pipes and fittings undergo rigorous quality checks at every stage of production. Every production batch is tested in state-of-the-art laboratories while manufacturing processes are fully automated. Thus, Spectra pipes are built to withstand high impact and pressure for long periods.
