UV-Resistant Clear PVC Piping
Harvel Plastics, Inc. announces the launch of EnviroKingUV, a clear PVC piping that is suitable for exposure to sunlight. UV-blocking technology reduces harmful ultraviolet light wavelengths from penetrating the plastic, while allowing beneficial wavelengths through. EnviroKingUV offers a cost-effective solution for photobioreactor tubing and other outdoor applications exposed to sunlight where transparency is required.
Harvel EnviroKingUV piping is produced from a rigid, transparent PolyVinyl Chloride (PVC) compound with a Cell Classification of 11553 per ASTM D1784. This material, which shows a slight blue tint, has been specifically formulated to block damaging UV light.
Harvel EnviroKingUV possesses the benefits of rigid PVC, such as corrosion resistance; smooth interior walls for unimpeded flow and reduced sediment buildup; fast, reliable solvent-welded connections; good pressure-bearing capability; and ease of handling and installation. All of these attributes are now available in a transparent product with UV stability.
