Eliminate chemical compatibility questions when using BlazeMaster® CPVC products
To overcome the confusion associated with researching and selecting accompanying construction products, Lubrizol Advanced Materials has developed the FBC™ System Compatible Program. This resource is made available to manufacturers of associated ancillary products to assist them in determining their product's chemical compatibility with BlazeMaster® CPVC products and other brands under Lubrizol.
Each listed product undergoes formulation screening and rigorous physical testing in contact with Lubrizol CPVC samples at a third-party laboratory. Accepted products are given the right to display the FBC™ System Compatible mark on their labels.
To qualify for inclusion in the FBC™ System Compatible Program, the manufacturer of auxiliary construction products must agree to:
Accepted products are given the right to display the FBC™ System Compatible mark on their labels.
Developers considering BlazeMaster® CPVC fire pipes and fittings should look for FBC™ compatibility before choosing other accessories.
Indian manufacturers should undergo the FBC™ program before selecting ancillary products—such as fire stopping systems, thread sealants and system accessories—this program helps developers, contractors and manufacturers find products known to be compatible with BlazeMaster® Fire Protection Systems.

Note: It is important to note, that not all CPVC products are identical. Different CPVC products may vary in molecular weight, chlorine content and compound additives. As a consequence of these variables, the FBC System Compatible Program can only help determine chemical compatibility with the aforementioned Lubrizol Advanced Materials' brands.
The FBC™ System Compatible Program is a resource made available to manufacturers of ancillary products intended to be used with CPVC to help determine whether a product is chemically compatible with Lubrizol’s FlowGuard®, BlazeMaster®, Corzan®, and AquaRise® made with TempRite® Technology CPVC piping systems. Other manufacturers and/or brands of CPVC piping have not been tested as part of the FBC™ System Compatible Program. The FBC™ System Compatible program is, therefore, only applicable to the chemical compatibility of ancillary products with the Lubrizol brands of FlowGuard®, BlazeMaster®, Corzan®, and AquaRise® made with TempRite® Technology CPVC piping systems. This distinction is made because every brand of CPVC piping is made with unique compounds, some of which may contain resins with different molecular weights and varying chlorine content. These characteristics directly impact the performance of the resulting product. Similarly, various CPVC products contain different performance additives. This too affects the performance characteristics of the ancillary product. For these reasons, Lubrizol has no responsibility for any failures occurring as a result of using products in the FBC™ System Compatible Program with CPVC products other than FlowGuard®, BlazeMaster®, Corzan®, and AquaRise® made with TempRite® Technology CPVC piping systems.
