The difference between PVC-C and PVC-U is the applicability of the materials at different working temperatures. PVC-C can be used at a temperature of 0 ° to + 90 ° C and PVC-U at a temperature of 0 ° to + 60°.
GOOD MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF PVC-C
PVC-C is known for its good mechanical properties at a higher temperature. The high tensile strength, stiffness and impact resistance of the material PVC-C provide a great advantage in transport with a high temperature.
STABILITY AND RESISTANCE OF PVC-U
PVC-U guarantees the best thermal stability and chemical resistance when transporting media. The material PVC-U is safe, efficient and reliable for use in shipbuilding or offshore.
THE SUITABILITY OF THE 2 TYPES OF PVC
Because PVC-C is better to use at a higher working temperature, the material is suitable for transporting hot water. On the other hand, PVC-U is suitable for the flow of bases, weak acids and salts, chlorine, drinking water and demineralised water. For the flow of cold, gray and black water or for water treatment and the installation of a ballast water system, both types of PVC are suitable.
THE ADVANTAGES OF PVC-C AND PVC-U
Both types of PVC from George Fischer have good chemical resistance and certification for use in shipbuilding and offshore. Nevertheless, the difference in applicability also means different properties:
Benefits of PVC-C
- Shows good mechanical properties at a higher temperature
- Is fire-resistant and fire-extinguishing
Benefits of PVC-U
- A low investment involves tools and equipment
- Has good corrosion resistance
