PVC hose is used for conveyance of chemicals, waste water, drinking water, vacuum system applications, slurries, cooling fluids and heating fluid, compressed air, foodstuffs, gases and ultra-pure liquids. The demand of PVC pipe is a lot all across the globe. Let’s find out the materials used for PVC hose:

  • PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride)
  • ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene)
  • PP (polypropylene)
  • UPVC (unplasticized polyvinyl chloride)
  • PE (polyethylene) also called as HDPE, MDPE and LDPE
  • CPVC (post chlorinated polyvinyl chloride)

Benefits of PVC’s Materials: 

CPVC and UPVC: CPVC is a good material and also resistant to various paraffinic, alcohols, acids, halogens, bases, hydrocarbons and salts. However, it is not resistant to hydrocarbons, solvents, chlorinated and aromatics.

UPVC provides a great chemical resistance all around its operating temperature range. It’s some of the advantages including affordability, high stiffness and long-lasting strength characteristics. These are helpful in plastic hose piping installation and useful for various purposes.








ABS: ABS is used for conveyance of chemicals, slurries and portable water. Generally, it is used for DWV (drain-waste-vent) applications.

PVDF: PVDF is a reliable chemical resistance that means it is extensively used in the chemical industry. 

PE: Polyethylene is a safe way to conveyance of waste and portable water, compressed gases and hazardous.


PP: It is used with ultra pure waters and foodstuffs along with the chemical industry and pharmaceutical.
