Pipe and fittings, foam core pipes & foam sheets

Durastrength® and Clearstrength® impact modifiers were created for excellent performance and cost for piping. Durastrength® offer extreme weatherability and heat stability in addition of increasing impact strength, even at low temperatures. Clearstrength® provide superior impact performances for CPVC pipe and fittings. Plastistrength® processing aids bring benefits to PVC processing. They offer improved cost performance versus traditional lubricant solutions.
