Frequently Asked Questions
What is PVC solvent cement?
A mixture of solvents is used to dissolve CPVC resin, stabilisers, and fillers to create solvent cement. These solvents accomplish two tasks: Make the CPVC resin dissolve. Clean the pipe and fitting's surface.
Does solvent cement melt the plastic?
Different principles govern how PVC and ABS pipe solvent cement (technically, it is a solvent cement rather than a glue) functions. The outer layer of plastic on the pipe and fitting melts due to the solvent in the liquid.
How strong is PVC solvent cement?
PVC joints that have been properly cemented are extraordinarily sturdy and will remain watertight for many years. Although the cementing procedure is not too challenging or complex, it does take some planning and close attention to detail.
