PVC Schedule 40 Pressure Pipe and Fitting System
PVC Schedule 40 pipe and fittings is intended for pressure applications where the operating temperature will not exceed 140 ° F.
Pipe and fittings are manufactured from virgin rigid PVC (polyvinyl chloride) vinyl compounds with a Cell Class of 12454 as identified in ASTM D 1784. PVC Schedule 40 pipe are Iron Pipe Size (IPS) conforming to ASTM D 1785.
PVC Schedule 40 fittings conform to ASTM D 2466. Pipe and fittings are manufactured as a system and are the product of one manufacturer. All pipe and fittings are manufactured in the United States.
