What color is PVC cement?
Just so, what is the difference between PVC glue and PVC cement?
A: Solvent welding is a chemical process that uses a primer, or the cement itself, to soften the surface of plastic pipe and fittings in order to weld, or fuse them together. Glue such as PVC glue, on the other hand, is only a bonding cement and will not work with an interference fit.
Likewise, what is PVC cement for? PVC Cement. PVC pipe is designed for drains, vents and waste flow. PVC cement is specially formulated for schedules 40 and 80 PVC pipe. When it is applied, the pipe will visibly soften and then solidify as the cement sets to form a joint that is stronger than the surrounding pipe and fittings.
Similarly one may ask, what is PVC cement made of?
Solvent cement is made up of CPVC resin, stabilizers and fillers dissolved in a cocktail of solvents.
Is PVC cement necessary?
If you are trying to use PVC pipe to transport fluid or gas, PVC cement or special push-on fittings are necessary to assure there are no leaks.
