This article contains a list of PVC fittings, which are used to connect pipes to a power source, such as a wall outlet or a power generator.
This article is for information purposes only.
The manufacturer’s name, product name and model number may differ from this list.
There may be other PVC fitting manufacturers.
If you are unsure of what type of PVC to buy, see our guide to buying a new or used power supply.
If your new or existing power supply needs replacing, contact your power supply manufacturer for advice.

Pipes are usually made of polypropylene (PPP), which has a high surface area of about 0.6m2 and a low coefficient of expansion of around 0.15, making them strong and flexible.
PVC is also a commonly used flexible material, but the best value is usually a polypropene (PP).
PPE, on the other hand, has a higher surface area and a higher coefficient of thermal expansion (COVID-19), but it is less flexible.
The key difference between PVC and PPE is that PPE can be moulded into shape to fit a particular need, while PVC cannot.
PVC fitters can also be made of other materials such as aluminium, polystyrene, nylon or polyethylene (PET).
These materials have high thermal conductivity, making the fittings more stable and thus easier to clean and maintain.
However, PVC is generally more flexible and less expensive than PPE.
The most common types of PVC pipe used in power supply installations are: fittings made of copper and zinc
