General Industrial < 185°F | Polyvinylchloride (PVC)

PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride)

Ensinger's type 1 grey PVC ROD is designed for machining solutions ans is a cost effective solution for general industrial applications. The material offers an excellent combination of chemical resistance and mechanical strength, along with good thermal and electrical properties that are suited to a variety of industries.

  • Excellent chemical and corrosion resistance
  • Very good mechanical strength
  • Non-contamination for application requiring high levels of material purity
  • Excellent flammability characteristics

Manufactured in rod, Ensinger PVC can be used for applications such as pump housings, valve components, and other parts as well as couplings in electronics applications that require good chemical resistance.
