Harvel® Plastics, Inc., an US-based PVC and CPVC pipe extrusion company, has recently launched EnviroKingUV™, a clear PVC piping that is suitable for exposure to sunlight. Unique UV blocking technology reduces harmful ultraviolet light wavelengths from penetrating the plastic while allowing beneficial wavelengths through. EnviroKingUV™ offers a cost-effective solution for photobioreactor use and other outdoor applications exposed to sunlight where transparency is required.
Harvel EnviroKingUV™, the patent pending piping, is produced from a unique, rigid, transparent PolyVinyl Chloride (PVC) compound per ASTM D1784. This material has been specifically formulated to block damaging UV light. Harvel EnviroKingUV™ pipe is produced to IPS dimensions from this material. Specialty ThinWall™ dimensions have been optimized in a variety of diameters that improve light transmission while maintaining product rigidity.
