Adobe Acrobat Document Press Release

Vacaville, CA – M&G DuraVent announced today that it has acquired further PolyPro approvals for IBC Boiler Models. In addition to the already approved SL 20-115, 30-175, 45-260, 80-399, and 80-399 HP boiler models, IBC has extended the approval to include their VFC Series boilers, models 15-150 and 45-225. This latest approval supports the use of M&G DuraVent’s PolyPro Single-Wall.

PolyPro is an engineered system specifically designed for venting heating appliances. Gasketed joints require no primers or adhesives and easily assemble in seconds with just a splash of water. Terminations are designed for superior performance in poor environmental conditions. PolyPro is tested and listed to the ULC S636 standard in Canada and rated as a Class IIA, IIB, and IIC vent system. PolyPro offers the only double-wall polypropylene flex in the U.S., making it durable for relining masonry chimneys, factory-built chimneys, and useful for relining B-vent pipe when retrofitting it to use as a chase. PolyPro is superior in performance and easier to install than PVC or CPVC pipe, which were designed for irrigation, not venting. PolyPro has been successfully venting appliances in Europe for over 15 years.
