**Values listed are typical and are meant only as a guide to aid in design. Field testing should be performed to find the actual values for the application.


The non-toxic compound used to manufacture CLEAR-40 is non-conductive and has a U.L. rating of 94 VO.


Since CLEAR-40 is highly corrosion resistant as well as transparent, it is used extensively in chemical, pharmaceutical, and food plants, as well as laboratories and hospitals, where visual contact with the flow is desired.


CLEAR-40 pipe can be used interchangeably with standard schedule 40 gray or white fittings. Assemblies with standard fittings should be permanently glued using primer and solvent cement.

Twenty-foot pipe lengths, bell-shaped pipe ends, other fitting configurations, and schedule 80 pipe are available through minimum order — call for details.


CLEAR-40 is neither recommended to be threaded nor recommended for use in applications involving compressed gas.


^Although the product is completely transparent, it does have a blue tint.
