The Cantex terminal adapter is made of one solvent weld female end and one threaded male end; each of which will fit the same diameter conduit.
The only significant risk of using PVC materials occurs during a fire, because burning PVC can release toxic fumes, such as carbon monoxide and other gases which are injurious to all sensitive skin areas and the breathing function. Skin irritation and coughing may result.

Difference between Schedule 40 and Schedule 80 Conduit
The difference between Schedule 40 and Schedule 80 lies in the thickness of the wall of the piping. The Schedule 40 has a thinner wall than the Schedule 80 piping even when dealing with the same size pipe. Because the pipes are the same size on the outside, the difference lies in the interior. They will differ by inside diameter.
A 1" (25.4 mm) Schedule 40 pipe will have an outside diameter of 1.315" (33.4 mm) and an inside diameter of 1.029" (26.1 mm). A 1" (25.4 mm) Schedule 80 pipe will have an outside diameter of 1.315" (33.4 mm) and an inside diameter of 0.936" (23.8 mm).
They will look identical from the exterior. The reason for the difference is that thicker piping allows for larger pressure. Thinner piping and fittings however are less expensive typically.
