Clear PVC pipe, can be called transparent PVC tube. In fact, it's just a different formula than normal PVC pipes. But why talk about it separately? Because the clear tubing gives it a better "look", it also costs more than the gray PVC tubing.
The classification of clear PVC pipes is almost the same as that of ordinary PVC pipes. Some are for wires and some are for drainage. Transparent PVC pipes for electrical wires are optimized in terms of insulation and resistance to high pressure and impact, which can better protect your safety. In addition, it can be seen on the Internet that some DIY enthusiasts like to use transparent hoses in home improvement projects for drainage or drainage. Yes, that's right, it is the PVC transparent pipe we are talking about. When you install them on outdoor projects, you can easily see the size of the water flow and it looks really good. But in fact, in ordinary home decoration, especially sewage pipes, clear PVC pipes are generally not used.
Like normal PVC electrical conduit, it can easily exceed 100 years. After all, they are all the same raw material, but the formula of additives is different. Therefore, they are not much different from ordinary PVC wires in terms of stability and other properties. Likewise, it is also recyclable for clear PVC pipe.
For general home decoration, we do not recommend you to choose clear PVC pipes, because the cost is much higher than gray electrician PVC pipes. But if you have the requirement, of course you can. After all, it is still a PVC wire and tube, which almost inherits all the advantages of PVC wire and tube. As for its disadvantages, if you can live with it, of course it's not a big deal. Transparent PVC pipes also make it easy to check the condition of the wires inside the conduit during construction or maintenance, making it easy to troubleshoot and quickly confirm problems. For example, a wire is kinked, broken, or has other problems. You can double check it anytime.
As mentioned earlier, clear PVC pipes are different from ordinary PVC wire pipes, except that the additive formula is different and the raw materials are the same, so the strength is no different from ordinary PVC wire pipes. For products sold in the North American market, we also have UL certification for tensile strengths up to 5000 psi. So you don't have to worry about the strength of the clear PVC pipe as it looks very solid and rigid. We suggest you pay more attention to your needs when choosing electrical PVC pipes for your project.
