The Tip of the Week is presented by media sponsor Kamweld Technologies, Inc. based in Norwood, Mass.


Kamweld Product Manager Len Alter is back to share his experiences and this week he discusses the importance of considering the proper usage temperature for PVC and other plastics. If plastics are used above their top temperature limit then there will be failures that could lead to corrosion of tanks or other use cases.


He added that each plastic has a different usage temperature. For example, Kynar (polyvinylidene fluoride) has a high temperature threshold that is much higher than that of PVC (polyvinyl chloride).
