We are pleased to announce the release of the 20B PVC Bendit. This series of PVC Bendit was designed primarily for use by Pool and Spa installers and repair companies as well as those in the theatrics industry who build stage sets. The PVC Bendit is inserted into the PVC Pipe and heats it to temperature that allows it to be shaped/bent.
The 20B has a heating element 20' long so it can be used to heat and bend a 20' length of PVC schedule 40 or 80 pipe that is at least 1 1/4" in diameter. The 20B is 120 volts - 15 amp. It is built using CSA listed parts but is not CSA Listed like the other PVC Bendits.
The PVC Bendit 20B works best when the PVC Pipe being heated is placed in the BendStation (included with PVC Bendit when purchased) which is Microlok fiberglass pipe insulation. The BendStation helps keep the heat around the pipe containing the PVC Bendit.
