Biological Resistance

Lubrizol® CPVC is resistant to attack from both fungi and bacteria.

Fungus growth on plastics is supported when plasticizers or other additives are present for the fungus to feed on. Lubrizol CPVC contains no additives that provide nutrient sources for fungi.

Our material is also resistant to the action of all forms of bacteria, many of which are known to cause corrosion in metal systems, such as iron-oxidizing bacteria, sulfate-reducing bacteria, and acid-producing bacteria.

Lubrizol CPVC is also resistant to the most commonly used biocidal chemicals. Compatibility of fungicides and mold inhibitors with CPVC should be confirmed with the fungicide or inhibitor manufacture.
