PVC Schedule 80 Pipe & Fittings

As with Schedule 40 PVC, PVC Schedule 80 is ideal for applications where transmission of liquids or materials does not exceed 140°F.  While it is heavier and more expensive, Schedule 80 PVC has thicker walls and is therefore stronger with a greater pressure capacity (roughly 2 to 1 compared to Schedule 40 under similar conditions).  PVC  Schedule 80 has a smooth interior surface that minimizes head pressure  loss through friction, it minimizes rust and oxidation, and is generally  impervious to scaling or contaminant buildups. Systems are not  adversely affected by environmental agents and buried systems are not  adversely affected by normal soil contaminants.  The  inherent insulating qualities of PVC Schedule 80 provides substantial  benefits in temperature control, and in commercial installations, sound  transmission is greatly reduced.  Joining is accomplished through solvent cementing, threading or  flanging, insulation is generally not required, and extensive material  handling and fabricating equipment is not necessary.

PVC Schedule 80 pipe from PVC Industrial Products is available in 10 foot and 20 foot lengths with other lengths available on special order.  We can also cut to shorter lengths in our Ottawa shop.  It is normally available in plain end only but can be bell end with a special order, and we can custom thread our pipe as a special order.  Our PVC pipe and fittings are available in sizes from 1/2 inch to 24 inch with most items 1 inch to 12 inch being in stock at all times.  No other store large or small in the Eastern Ontario region stocks pipe and fittings above 2 inch like we do.
