CPVC Glue forms a water-tight seal between CPVC pipes, fittings, couplings, elbows, and other components used in the construction of fire sprinkler systems. This pint of one-step solvent cement softens the surface of CPVC pipe and fittings to form a secure and reliable bond.
Each pint of CPVC Glue is ideal for use with CPVC products manufactured by Thermafit Industries, Inc., a California-based manufacturer of plumbing and fire sprinkler pipe fittings. Apply a heavy, even coat to the outside of the CPVC pipe end, then apply a medium coat to the CPVC socket. For pipe sizes 1-1/4 in. and larger, apply a second coat on the pipe end.
For best results, choose an applicator with a width about half the size of the pipe's diameter. This solvent cement is listed by NSF for use in potable water systems.
Curing times vary with the selected pipe size, ambient temperature, and test pressure.
