Why ashirvad CPVC?

Can withstand heat up to 93°C flowing hot water

Chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC) is a thermoplastic produced by chlorination of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) resin used for hot and cold water lines. CPVC is the first choice of material for potable water supply across the world and is in use across the world for more than 50 years.

Lowest bacterial growth

As compared to other piping systems (steel, copper, polypropylene, other thermoplastics) the bacterial growth in Ashirvad FLOWGUARD™ PLUS CPVC is much lower.

No Corrosion, leakage, scaling and pitting

Ashirvad FLOWGUARD™ PLUS CPVC has excellent corrosion resistance, preventing contamination, bad taste, bad odour and discoloration of the water ensuring the purest form of water to the very last drop. CPVC systems are unaffected by the low pH of water, coastal air or corrosive soils.

Frequently asked questions

Ashirvad has made innovation for correct alignment of fittings with pipes during fitment. Elbows and fittings in 1/2”, 3/4” and 1” have an alignment mould mark which should be matched with the red stripe on the pipe during solvent cement push fitment process. This is to ensure that in the concealed installations the water outlet fittings are perpendicular to the wall surface and to avoid any repair, breakage, etc. after the wall finishing has been completed. Since there is no reference surface available to the plumber during installation in unplastered walls, this Self Alignment System is very useful and convenient. Ashirvad’s self alignment system also saves on the extra cost in correcting those non aligned joints.This alignment mark on the plastic fittings is an innovation done for the first time in the world by Ashirvad and is design registered.

CPVC compound (supplied by Lubrizol) used for manufacture of pipes and fittings are already UV protected. More than 50 years of use has shown that there is no deterioration in pressure withstanding capacity of FLOWGUARD™ PLUS CPVC pipes which have been installed under the sunlight, even after several years of installation. However, for extra protection for pipes which are directly under harsh sunlight, Ashirvad recommends covering all pipes and fittings installed on the roof to prevent any kind of mechanical damage to the system.

Repair of punctured and damaged pipe due to drilling/chiseling can be done by removing the cement plaster and using the pipe repair piece supplied by the company. Thoroughly clean the area of pipe damaged and make it dry. Apply solvent cement on the surface of pipe at damaged portion in the entire circumference. Also apply solvent ement on the inner surface of pipe repair piece and snap on over damaged area. Tie a small piece of string/binding wire around the repair piece and pipe for sometime to allow to set. This is an unique system available with CPVC pipe where the damaged pipe need not be cut or shifted back and forth for repair. Do pressure test before replastering.

Thermal conductivity of FLOWGUARD™ PLUS CPVC pipes and fittings is 0.14 W/MK whereas of copper is 400 W/MK. Since CPVC is a very bad conductor of heat, light insulation is recommended only for installations where there is a continuous flow of hot water e.g. solar/centralised heaters. In bathrooms with independent heaters within 3 meters location insulation may not be necessary. Please ensure that the insulation material or glue being used to hold the insulation material does not contain any phthalate plasticiser as it is not compatible with CPVC and can cause failure to plumbing system in the long run.
