Poly Vinyl Chloride or PVC pipe is a type of plastic pipe made of polyvinyl chloride resin. The addition of plasticisers during the manufacturing of PVC pipes make them flexible. PVC (polyvinyl chloride) pipes were first invented in the 1920s, but their use in industrial settings did not become prevalent until the 1950s. Today, PVC pipes are also manufactured without plasticisers to achieve rigidity and sturdiness in structure. This material is known as UPVC or Unplasticised Polyvinyl Chloride. CPVC or Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride is manufactured by the chlorination of PVC polymers. This is done to add flexibility and temperature resistance. In this article, we will explore different features of UPVC and CPVC pipes.
Here are some of the key features of UPVC pipes:
UPVC pipes are extremely durable and have a long lifespan.
Since they are resistant to corrosion, rust, and chemical erosion, it makes them ideal for use in harsh environments. They are also resistant to high temperature and pressure.
Owing to their lightweight, UPVC pipes are easy to install and transport.
The Utkarsh uFLO – uPVC Pipes possess a strong, tough, and rigid quality that makes them resistant to impact. These pipes and fittings are cost-effective and require low maintenance, thus making them an ideal choice for domestic cold water transportation systems. Also, these pipes are:
Leak Proof Joints
Also, these pipes have:
Mirror Smooth Inner Surface

Here are some of the key features of CPVC pipes:
They have high temperature resistance, CPVC pipes are widely used in hot water applications.
CPVC pipes are also resistant to corrosion and can withstand exposure to a wide range of chemicals.
CPVC pipes have low thermal conductivity and thus do not transfer heat quickly.
They are easy to install and can be joined using solvent cement or mechanical fittings.
CPVC pipes can withstand UV rays
CPVC pipes are easy to clean as there is no accumulation of scale or deposits.
