CPVC Piping Systems and Materials


BlazeMaster® fire protection systems are the most specified non-metallic fire sprinkler systems in the world.

Plumbing Systems

FlowGuard® pipe and fittings are made of high-performance chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC) and offer a unique combination of benefits.

Commercial & Industrial Systems

Corzan® commercial and industrial systems are specially made to meet high-temperature and high-pressure demands of most piping systems.

Lubrizol CPVC Piping Systems and Materials

Lubrizol is a single-source supplier of polymer technologies designed to address the toughest construction and manufacturing problems of today and is an innovator and a global leader in resins and compounds of chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC).

Lubrizol CPVC piping systems are designed for a wide range of applications with billions of feet installed globally, including plumbing, fire protection and industrial systems. All of Lubrizol’s CPVC piping systems are backed by extensive research and development capabilities and Lubrizol’s piping system consultants’ technological experience.

Lubrizol’s knowledge of CPVC resin, CPVC compounding, and CPVC processing expands the potential uses of CPVC molding compounds beyond traditional applications. The CPVC resin itself has excellent heat and chemical resistance. Lubrizol gets the most out of the CPVC molecule through decades of synthesis and process improvement, optimizing the properties of the base resin, and reducing variability in the final compound.

Key Features

By controlling the resin production, Lubrizol provides itself a strong and consistent basis on which to build its compounds. Lubrizol’s compounding expertise brings versatility to the CPVC resin base.

Fire Performance

Without the help of flame retardants and smoke inhibitors, Lubrizol CPVC inherently exhibits outstanding fire performance characteristics in terms of limited flame propagation and low smoke generation.

When coupled with its excellent balance of mechanical strength, low thermal conductivity and outstanding corrosion resistance, Lubrizol CPVC provides excellent safety and performance in a wide range of applications.

Abrasion Resistance

No single test method exists to consistently predict the abrasion resistance of a material to the broad range of potentially abrasive conditions.

As a result, the best guide in selecting materials for abrasive service is past experience. Lubrizol CPVC has a history of use in abrasive environments such as mining and mineral processing.


Depending on the specific application, prolonged exposure to sunlight can cause a gradual reduction in the material’s properties. Lubrizol CPVC is formulated to protect the polymer backbone from the effects of ultraviolet radiation.

If the specific installation requires additional protection from UV exposure, Lubrizol CPVC can be painted with common acrylic latex paint or be coated with a cap layer.

FlowGuard® plumbing systems

Chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC) was pioneered by the Lubrizol Corporation in 1959 for use in piping systems. CPVC is a strong, durable plastic material that has been used successfully for more than 50 years in plumbing applications around the world.

The inherent chemical strength, durability, and capacity of CPVC to withstand high heat and pressure make it an ideal material for residential, commercial, and even industrial piping systems.

For Plumbing systems, Lubrizol serves CPVC pipes and CPVC fittings under the name of FlowGuard®.

One of the safest, most efficient, and cost-effective plumbing solutions on the market is FlowGuard® plumbing systems. In residential and commercial buildings across the globe, billions of meters of FlowGuard® CPVC have been built.
