Can PVC cement be thinned?
Keeping this in view, can PVC glue be thinned?
If your PVC cement is just thick rather than hard, I would just add some tetrohydrofuran to thin it out. If it's hard, what you have is a hunk of PVC plastic, and you may as well chuck that in the garbage.
One may also ask, how do you soften PVC cement? Point the dryer into the joint and keep it there until the plastic turns soft. After removing the heat and grasping the end of the pipe with pliers, you should be able to rotate it. Once you do, the glue bond will break and the pipe and fitting should separate.
Also to know is, can you use too much PVC cement?
Using too much solvent cement can cause the PVC to dissolve to the point of weakening the joint, lessening the integrity of its waterproof capabilities. However, if you use too little solvent cement, the pieces may not be fully welded together, which may lead to leaks or other problems down the road.
Will PVC cement cure underwater?
PVC Cement is a fast-acting solvent cement designed to join PVC pipe and fittings. Ideal for conditions where moisture is present. Can cure underwater.
