United States Plastic Corp.

Unread postAuthor: King_TaTer » Thu Jun 05, 2008 9:18 pm

I've Just come upon a very interesting website that deals with all sorts of plastic products. More importantly PVC pipe and fittings. This site has a lot of products that could be useful in construction of a spud gun. Some products I've never even seen before.

They have SCH 40 and 80 Pipe and fittings, Clear PVC pipe and fittings, CPVC pipe and fittings, and they even have polypropylene pipe and fittings which a I don't really see a use for. So far I have only concluded that their SCH 40, 80, and their Clear PVC "Pipe" is pressure rated due to the charts that they provide. Although I wouldn't doubt that their SCH 80 fittings could bare some pressure. The link to pipe page is here.

Other miscellaneous things they have are PVC Sheets, Acrylic sheets, rods and pipes. They have some ball valves as well. Also I found a rather interesting page dealing with solid "balls" or spheres if you prefer. some are clear, Teflon, and nylon and they would make great ammunition. The link to that page is here

Hope this helps some people out, it helped me out. If this website has already been referenced or there is another thread dealing with this mods you can lock or delete this if you'd like.

Thanks,
King_TaTer

I've done business with them on multiple occasions. Never had any complaints.

They both fit the same fittings (the OD the same) but the ID is smaller on the sched 80 giving it thicker walls.

Odds and ends, some of those HDPE ball bearings for paint grenades, water valves, and a couple of other things my dad bought.
