Use of PVC electrical conduit for construction
Mainly used in building electrical installation works to protect wire or cable routing, which allows the penetration or replacement of wires or cables. It is formed by twin-screw extrusion with polyvinyl chloride (PVC) resin as the main raw material, supplemented by necessary additives. Mainly used for electrical and communication cable sheathing.
Scope of application of PVC electrical conduit pipe
Ø Mainly used for power and communication aspects such as indoor threading of buildings and structures, threading in walls, and buried wires.
Features of PVC electrical conduit pipe
Good electrical insulation performance, high resistance to current breakdown voltage.
Compression resistance, good impact resistance, can be applied in the dark.
Good fire performance, flame retardant, and automatically extinguished when away from the fire.
Acid and alkali corrosion resistance.
Easy to bend, easy to connect
The standard for light, medium, and heavy PVC electrical conduit
Light, medium, and heavy standards for PVC electrical conduit:
Light: OD 16mm-50mm; Medium: OD16mm-50mm; Heavy OD 16mm-50mm.
The material of PVC electrical conduit is polyvinyl chloride, which is the most plastic product produced in the world. PVC is a white powder with an amorphous structure, a small degree of branching, and poor stability to light and heat. Different additives can be added according to different uses, and PVC plastics can exhibit different physical and mechanical properties.

Advantages of UPVC fittings and pipes
Lightweight: The proportion of UPVC material is only 1/10 of that of cast iron, which is easy to transport and install, and reduces costs.
Superior chemical resistance: UPVC has excellent acid and alkali resistance, except for strong acid and alkali near the saturation point or strong Oxidising agents maximum.
Non-conductive: UPVC material cannot conduct electricity, nor is it corroded by electrolysis and current, so there is no need for secondary processing.
Can not burn, does not support combustion, no fire concerns.
Easy installation and low cost: cutting and joining are very simple, and the use of PVC glue to join has proven reliable and safe, easy to operate, and low cost.
Durable: excellent weather resistance, and can not be corrupted by bacteria and fungi.
Low resistance and high flow rate: the inner wall is smooth, the loss of fluid fluidity is small, and the dirt is not easy to adhere to the smooth pipe wall, the maintenance is relatively simple, and the maintenance cost is low.
