Clear, Rigid Transparent Butyrate Pipe vs. Clear PVC Pipe

Busada extrudes Butyrate (CAB), and Tritan pipe in nominal sizes from ½” to 8” and in Sch 10, 40, and 80. We extrude other schedules to order.

The picture below is from a recent run of Butyrate 6” Schedule 80 Pipe. Our customer’s engineer was not happy with the tolerances he was getting from PVC pipe suppliers. He had a very tight tolerance on his ID. Our manufacturing process allowed us to provide a .432 wall average and hit spot-on his ID tolerances.

We also produced this long-radius pipe bend (48” Radius, 90° with 12” Tangents) with a tolerance of +0-.125” flatness. A round bend is essential for his need as this tube will be used in tubular conveying.

For a demonstration of Butyrate Pipe vs. PVC Pipe clarity and transparency, here is a picture of 3” Schedule 40 PVC Pipe and Butyrate Pipe side by side.

The clarity and transparency difference between butyrate and clear PVC is obvious.
