The correct technical name of this product is CPVC Solvent cement also known as CPVC Cement or simply CPVC glue.
CPVC Cement is used to join CPVC pipes and fittings together to ensure that they form a homogenous leak-proof joint. CPVC cement is made up of CPVC resins, solvents and color for quick and easy application at the joints of CPVC pipes and fittings.
CPVC solvent cement does not work like a glue. The CPVC solvent cements are based on chemical welding technology that melt the surface of the plastic, which when inserted inside one another, mixes together a thin layer of plastic that works like cold welding. Once welded, within a few minutes the solvent dries up leaving the plastic to harden and gain its original strength.
The result of this process is a joint which is homogenous and strong, resistant to water, heat, pressure, etc. A CPVC cement joint once made cannot be taken apart.
These solvents are an integral part of CPVC plumbing system.
Good CPVC glue not only makes strong joints but has optimum drying time so as to enable plumbers enough time to work and at the same time regain joint strength after jointing quickly.
Another important aspect of the solvent cement is that it should contain solvents which should be safe for end users as well as for plumbers.
CPVC Solvent cements are available in tubes and cans. Cans come with dauber type applicator for ease of use for plumbers.
CPVC Solvent cements are of two types:
One-step: the solvent cement can be directly used to make joints and does not require usage of separate primer. These are recommended for usage in water applications for making joints upto 2”. In case of CPVC these are yellow color and are classified as medium duty.
Two-step: these solvent cements require usage of primer prior to application of solvent cement. These solvent cement systems are recommended for use to make joints 2 ½” and above sizes and also where piping is being used for conveyance of industrial chemicals.
Primers for CPVC are generally purple color and heavy duty solvent cements are either grey or orange color. These are generally classified as heavy duty.
CPVC cements are available in the following sizes:
One-step yellow medium duty:
29ml, 59ml in tubes
118ml, 237ml, 463ml, 946ml in cans
Purple Primer: 463ml, 946ml in cans
Heavy Duty grey or Orange: 463ml, 946ml in cans
CPVC solvent cements are reasonably priced for consumers that remain stable in the long run.
