PVC and CPVC Pipes - Schedule 40 & 80

Standard dimensions and weight of PVC - Polyvinyl Chloride - and CPVC - Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride - pipes according ASTM D1785

pvc pipes

ASTM D1785 "Standard Specification for Poly(Vinyl Chloride) (PVC) Plastic Pipe, Schedules 40, 80, and 120" is manufactured to meet the needs of a broad range of industrial, commercial and residential piping systems.

Typical weight and dimensions of PVC and CPVC pipes are indicated in the table below.

Note! The dimensions are valid for CPVC Industrial Pipe - not tubing according ASTM D2846 / D2846M "Standard Specification for Chlorinated Poly(Vinyl Chloride) (CPVC) Plastic Hot- and Cold-Water Distribution Systems"

  • 1 lb = 0.4536 kg
  • 1 ft (foot) = 0.3048 m
  • 1 in (inch) = 25.4 mm

PVC - Polyvinyl Chloride

  • strong and rigid
  • resistant to a variety of acids and bases
  • may be damaged by some solvents and chlorinated hydrocarbons
  • maximum usable temperature 140oF (60oC)
  • usable for water, gas and drainage systems
  • not useable in hot water systems
