In certain situations, designers and engineers need to make a choice between PVC Coated Aluminum Conduit and PVC Coated Galvanized Conduit.
Calbond’s made in the USA PVC Coated Aluminum Conduit offers many advantages over Rigid Metal Conduit:
Coated RAC (Rigid Aluminum Conduit) is one-third the weight of RMC (Rigid Metal Conduit)
Coated RAC provides users with easy field fabrication resulting in lower installation costs
Coated RAC provides extra protection in most corrosive and industrial environments
Coated RAC is non-sparking and meets all National Electrical code - Article 500 Hazardous Area
Requirements, making it the ideal choice in explosion proof locations
Coated RAC is non-magnetic, providing protection for sensitive environments
Calbond coated RAC is UL6A and NEMA RN-1 compliant, without exception
Corrosion is one of the biggest enemies for a number of industrial installations, including chemical and petrochemical plants, offshore platforms, wastewater treatment facilities, power plants, and transportation and infrastructure, among others.
All fittings incorporate flexible overlapping sleeves ensuring a tight seal at every connection. The conduit comes standard with a 40 mil PVC coating over the outside of the conduit and a 2 mil urethane coating on the interior of the conduit.
Our products are designed to withstand extreme temperatures, harsh, toxic, flammable and acidic elements. Calbond offers a complete line of PVC coated conduit, fittings, and accessories for the protection of electrical conduit systems in highly corrosive environments.
