Lubrizol Advanced Materials is a leading world manufacturer of post-chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC) and has specifically designed compounds for use in fire sprinkler systems. CPVC pipes and fittings provide unique advantages in sprinkler installations, including superior hydraulics, ease of joining and ease of assembly.

Such systems were first installed in the United States but also have increasing success in Europe, mainly in Great Britain and Scandinavia.

Following the most recent European led developments to address the need to develop sustainable building solutions, several independent studies by European government agencies and insurers have shown that the installation of fire sprinkler systems is an important contributing factor in sustainability. They considerably reduce fire, smoke and water damage and eliminate the need for fire damaged buildings to be torn down and rebuilt.

CPVC fire sprinkler piping further contributes to a positive environmental impact because its production requires less energy than steel pipe and due to its corrosion resistance, has an increased service life time compared to any metal pipe.
