Pipe and fittingsfoam core pipes and foam sheets

Durastrength® and Clearstrength® impact modifiers were created for excellent performance and cost for piping. Durastrength® offers extreme weatherability and heat stability in addition to increasing impact strength, even at low temperatures. Clearstrength® provides superior impact performances for CPVC pipe and fittings. Plastistrength® processing aids bring benefits to PVC processing. They offer improved cost performance versus traditional lubricant solutions.
