PVC coated conduit fittings

Sponsored by

Calbond™ provides an aluminum option that is lighter and easier to install than the comparable steel line. For additional corrosion protection, Calbond PVC-coated conduit bodies feature a minimum thickness of 0.002" urethane on the interior and exterior of the fitting, and are then coated again with a 40-mil PVC coating on top of the urethane, providing an additional layer of protection against accidental nicks and/or cuts from assembly tools during installation. All fittings incorporate flexible overlapping sleeves, ensuring a tight seal at every connection.
