Why use Poly-Gas® Valves?

Polyvalve Poly-Gas® valves are everything you’d expect from the company that invented Polyethylene valves.

Millions of Polyvalve Poly-Gas® valves have been sold since 1976 and are in use throughout the world. Here’s why:

  • Rugged and reliable Polyvalve Poly-Gas® valves are the strongest part of a Polyethylene piping system.
  • No metal internal parts.
  • Bubble-tight shutoff from dual elastomeric seats.
  • Fused body shell eliminates leak paths to atmosphere.
  • High-grade polymeric materials eliminate corrosion.
  • Multiple elastomeric stem seals.
  • Smooth bore gives excellent flow characteristics in both full and standard port designs.
