Schedule 80 CPVC Caps
CPVC has a maximum temperature rating of 200 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s 60 degrees higher than PVC. Because of this and other physical properties, CPVC is often used in place of PVC or metal for industrial jobs and applications that deal with highly corrosive materials. Our CPVC caps are schedule 80 – meaning they have a relatively thick wall and higher pressure capabilities than schedule 40 pipe and fittings.
Caps are usually used in a pipe job to stop up the end of the line. CPVC caps are a light gray in color and they slide or screw over the end of pipe (or a male threaded fitting). They range in size from tiny ¼” caps up to large 12 inch size caps. For large diameter fittings we recommend using a heavy body, slow dry CPVC cement. That will allow you to apply the solvent, place the fitting, and get it clamped in place so it can set.
