Medium-bodied blue cement for use on all schedules and classes of PVC pipe and fittings up to 6" diameter with interference fit.

Store and use at temperatures between 4.44°C and 43.33 °C. At temperatures outside of this range, special care must be taken to prepare good joints and prevent exposure to solvents. Stir or shake before using; if jelly-like, don't use. Do not thin.

  1. Cut pipe ends square, chamfer and clean pipe ends.
  2. Check dry fit of pipe and fitting. Pipe should easily go 1/3 of the way into the fitting. If pipe bottoms, it should be snug.
  3. Use a suitable applicator at least 1/2 the size of the pipe diameter. For larger size pipe systems use a natural bristle brush or roller.
  4. Clean pipe and fitting with a listed primer. Where local codes permit, may be used without primer.
  5. Apply liberal coat of cement to pipe to the depth of the socket, leave no uncoated surface.
  6. Apply a thin coat of cement to inside of fitting, avoid puddling of cement. Puddling can cause weakening and premature failure of pipe or fitting. Apply a second coat of cement to the pipe.
  7. Assemble parts QUICKLY. Cement must be fluid. If cement surface has dried, re-coat both parts.
  8. Push pipe FULLY into fitting using a ¼ turning motion until pipe bottoms.
  9. Hold pipe and fitting together for 30 seconds to prevent pipe push-out - longer at low temperatures. Wipe off excess.
  10. Allow 5 minutes for good handling strength and 30 minutes cure time at temperatures above 15.55°C before hydrostatic pressure testing up to 180 psi. System may be hydrostatically pressure tested up to 75 psi 15 minutes after joining at temperatures above 15.55°C for pipe up to 2". Longer cure times may be required at temperatures below 15.55° C or with diameters over 3".

DO NOT TEST WITH AIR.
