UPVC is the term that stands for unplasticized polyvinyl chloride. PVC or polyvinyl chloride is a polymer material that can be heated and molded to get desired products such as pipes. AGM UPVC pipes are strong and very hard. Therefore, manufacturers tend to add plasticizers to PVC in order to reduce rigidity. However, UPVC is the unplasticized PVC in which no plasticizer is included. Hence it is very rigid.

AGM UPVC pipes are less bendable and are hard to work with due to their rigidity. A UPVC pipe is nearly rigid as an iron pipe. However, it is easy to cut with power tools. UPVC pipes are durable and fire-resistant. They are also recyclable.


AGM CPVC or chlorinated polyvinyl chloride is a thermoplastic polymer. It is produced by the chlorination of PVC polymer. This chlorination is done to get the properties such as more flexibility and ability to withstand high temperatures.

The production process includes the chlorination of PVC via free radical chlorination. This reaction is initiated by using UV energy, which can decompose chlorine gas into radicals. These radicals then react with PVC and replace a portion of hydrogen atoms with chlorine atoms. Various additives are also introduced to the polymer material in order to make it easy to process.
