PVC (polyvinyl chloride) and ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) threaded fittings are components used to connect compatible plastic pipesin order to convey fluids or chemicals.
PVC and ABS threaded fittings are often used in, for example, the water treatment, ship building and chemical processing industries. Depending on the type, they can connect straight pipe or tubing sections, adapt to different sizes or shapes and regulate or measure fluid flow. As these PVC and ABS fittings are threaded, they can be coated in thread sealing paste and screwed into the pipe system. They tend to be very robust and resistant to impact, corrosion and chemicals.
PVC and ABS threaded fittings come in various styles depending on your needs, for example couplings, reducers, elbows, nipples and adaptors. They may be threaded on both sides or only on one side and the threads can be the same or different genders.
