The FBC™ System Compatible Program was launched in 2002 in order to provide building contractors with a reliable selection of ancillary products confirmed to be compatible with FlowGuard ®, BlazeMaster®, Corzan® , and products made with TempRite® Technology. Products listed here have undergone formulation screening and rigorous physical testing in contact with CPVC material samples at a third party laboratory. Their manufacturers have furthermore agreed not to change the product formulation without rescreening and retesting, and to undergo annual retesting and audits of their manufacturing facilities. Look for the FBC logo when selecting ancillary products for installation in contact with FlowGuard , BlazeMaster, Corzan, and products made with TempRite Technology.

To find the products that are chemically compatible with FlowGuard, BlazeMaster, Corzan, and products made with TempRite Technology, select either:
Category: to view products by product type (i.e., caulks, sealants, wraps). Once you select a category, you will be prompted for your geographic region. Not all products are available in all regions.
- OR -
Manufacturer: to view product manufacturers in the FBC System Compatible Program.
The FBC™ System Compatible Program is a resource made available to manufacturers of ancillary products intended to be used with CPVC to help determine whether a product is chemically compatible with Lubrizol’s FlowGuard® pipe and fittings, BlazeMaster® fire protection systems, Corzan® industrial piping, and products made with TempRite® Technology. Other manufacturers and/or brands of CPVC piping have not been tested as part of the FBC System Compatible Program. The FBC System Compatible program is, therefore, only applicable to the chemical compatibility of ancillary products with the Lubrizol brands of FlowGuard, BlazeMaster, Corzan, and products made with TempRite Technology. This distinction is made because every brand of CPVC piping is made with unique compounds, some of which may contain resins with different molecular weights and varying chlorine content. These characteristics directly impact the performance of the resulting product. Similarly, various CPVC products contain different performance additives. This too affects the performance characteristics of the ancillary product. For these reasons, Lubrizol has no responsibility for any failures occurring as a result of using products in the FBC System Compatible Program with CPVC products other than FlowGuard, BlazeMaster, Corzan, and products made with TempRite Technology.
