Clowe & Cowan prides itself on having the expertise for industrial services, like pipe fitting. Below is a quick overview of some of the pipe materials we work with daily. 


Copper enjoys great durability and corrosion resistance. The thermal conductivity copper is known for is also quite useful, and it is relatively easy to work with on our end as well. 


PVC stands for Polyvinyl Chloride, which describes the kind of plastic it is made of. There are a number of different types of PVC pipe, but most are dense, relatively cheap, flame retardant, and durable. 


Slotted pipes are usually made from rigid PVC pipes, and are used to remove excess water from soil. They have great agricultural applications and can be exposed to any type of water. 

Stainless Steel

Like copper, stainless steel has excellent corrosion resistance. Strength can be maintained in a wide range of temperatures, unlike other metals. Stainless steel also has top-notch ductility but can be a bit expensive.


HDPE stands for high-density polyethylene, and is often used to replace concrete or steel. As the name suggests, this piping is very dense, and can withstand enormous amounts of pressure. However, it is flexible as well and is great for water or liquid distribution. 

Fiberglass Pipe

Like HDPE piping, fiberglass pipes are great for high-pressure situations. Fiberglass is a fiber-reinforced plastic, and represents a cost-effective alternative to other materials. 

Ductile Iron

Ductile iron pipe is the successor to cast iron piping. Ductile iron is known for fatigue resistance and wear resistance. It is much stronger than cast iron, and is a great material for a plethora of applications.
