Plasti-Bond Hazardous Location Fittings now UL 1203 Listed

Plasti-Bond PVC Coated Conduit and Fittings has enhanced its line of hazardous location fittings in order to provide customers with the safest and best performing corrosion resistant solution for hazardous location areas.  Plasti-Bond Sealing Fittings, Conduit Unions, GUA Outlet Boxes, and EC Series Flexible Couplings are now verified for safety through UL 1203 Listings; the UL Safety Standard for Explosion-Proof and Dust-Ignition-Proof Electrical Equipment for Use in Hazardous (Classified) Locations.

The new patent-pending P5SA™ feature on Sealing Fittings allows positional feedback for the upgraded urethane-coated plug for proper installation without compromising the best possible corrosion protection.  To validate proper installation and plug engagement, the new design allows for visual validation by ensuring the plug will not protrude beyond the beveled edge of the PVC around the plug, validating that there are 5 full threads of engagement per the NEC code, which is critical for safe installation and a proper flame path.  Sealing fittings are UL listed to use with either traditional Chico® A or Chico® Speed Seal™ Sealant Compounds and require proper tagging after installation to ensure correct classification ratings.

Products are now labeled according to the requirements of UL 1203 for the hazardous locations in which they are listed for use. All listed Plasti-Bond PVC coated hazardous location fittings are also equipped with the Enhanced UL Certification Mark on their label.  Enhanced UL Certification Marks provide streamlined access to the UL Smart Marks Hub, which provides important compliance data, product information and proper installation instructions via smart devices.
