System Compatibility

No matter what materials you use, ensuring compatibility is essential:

  • With metal piping, the industry knows to avoid contact between dissimilar metals to avoid galvanic corrosion.
  • For generations, plumbers have known that copper must be protected when installed in concrete or high salinity environments because of corrosion concerns.

While FlowGuard Gold® CPVC is immune to corrosion, pitting and scaling, installers need to be sure they are using ancillary construction products that are compatible with FlowGuard Gold CPVC. To ease the burden associated with researching and selecting accompanying construction products, Lubrizol developed the FBC™ System Compatible Program.

This resource is made available to manufacturers of ancillary products to assist in determining their product’s chemical compatibility with FlowGuard Gold® CPVC piping systems.
