What is AGM Solvent Cement?
CPVC (Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride) solvent cement is a type of adhesive specifically AGM has design for joining CPVC pipes and fittings.
CPVC is a thermoplastic material commonly used in the plumbing industry due to its resistance to corrosion and high-temperature capabilities. Solvent cement is used to create strong and durable bonds between CPVC components.
How to Use the CPVC solvent cement?
- Prepare the Surfaces:
- Ensure that the CPVC pipes and fittings are clean and free from any dirt, dust, or moisture.
- Use a fine-grade sandpaper to lightly roughen the pipe and fitting surfaces. This helps the solvent cement to adhere better.
- Cut the CPVC Pipes:
- Cut the CPVC pipes to the required lengths using a CPVC pipe cutter or a fine-toothed saw. Ensure that the cuts are clean and square.
- Dry Fit the Components:
- Dry fit the pipes and fittings together to ensure that they align properly and the assembly fits as intended.
- Apply Solvent Cement:
- Shake the CPVC solvent cement container well to ensure that the solvent and adhesive components is mix shake.
- Use the applicator brush attached to the cap to apply a generous coat of solvent cement to both the outside of the pipe and the inside of the fitting.
- Ensure that the solvent cement is evenly applied, covering the entire surface to be joined.
- Assemble the Joint:
- Immediately after applying the solvent cement, join the pipe and fitting together. Twist the components slightly to ensure even distribution of the cement.
- Hold the joint together for a short period to allow the solvent cement to start the bonding process.
- Wipe Excess Cement:
- Use a clean, dry cloth to wipe away any excess solvent cement from the joint. This helps create a neat and professional-looking connection.
- Allow Curing Time:
- Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for curing time. Typically, CPVC solvent cement requires some time (usually a few hours) to fully cure and create a strong bond.
- Pressure Test (Optional):
- After the recommended curing time, you may conduct a pressure test to ensure that the joint is secure and leak-free.
