What kind of glue do you use on CPVC pipe?
Accordingly, what happens if you use PVC glue on CPVC?
CPVC cement, on the other hand, has no problem holding CPVC together, and since it has a more durable structure, it can hold PVC pipe together as well. So, if all you have to bond two PVC pipes and fittings together is CPVC cement, it will work, but PVC cement cannot be used to bond CPVC pipes and fittings.
Furthermore, how long does it take for CPVC glue to cure? 2 hours
Likewise, can you use blue glue on CPVC?
A: Yes. CPVC solvent cement technically will work on PVC piping. However, we recommend that the correct Weld-On primer and PVC solvent cement for the particular application should be used. Please note that PVC solvent cement, because of temperature limitations, is not recommended for CPVC piping.
How long after gluing CPVC can you turn water on?
In temperatures from 60 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit and for pressures less than 160 pounds per square inch, the cure time for 1/2- to 1 1/4-inch pipes is 15 minutes, and for 1 1/2- to 2-inch pipes, it's 30 minutes. In colder temperatures, the safest practice is to double the curing times.
