Strengths of CPVC – Flame resistance

Flame resistance

Calorific value is a measurement of the total energy released as heat when a substance undergoes complete combustion with oxygen. Experimental results show that CPVC has a lower calorific value than PVC.

Additionally, a comparison of the ignition timing of the two materials also shows the flame resistance of CPVC: PVC starts to ignite after 40 seconds, whereas CPVC starts to ignite after 335 seconds.

The CPVC compound “Durastream” also has a low smoke emission rate.
