Vahini Solvent Cement
This specification provides general requirements for solvent cement used in joining Acrylonitrile-Dutadiene-Styrene (ADS) plastic pipes or fittings to poly vinyl chloride (PVC), plastic pipes & fittings.
These solvents are intended for using cementing transition joints between ABS & PVC materials.
Good Viscosity stability of the solution.
Excellent bonding performances specially maintaining high bonding strength at a high temperature.
Free from lumps, macroscopic undissolved particles and foreign particles.
Installation process for Solvent Cement Joint Pipes
Mark the spigot with a pencil line (‘witness mark’) at a distance equal to the internal depth of the socket. Other marking methods may be used provided that they do not damage or score the pipe.
Using a suitably sized brush, apply a thin even coat of solvent cement to the internal surface of the socket first. Special care should be taken to ensure that excess solvent cement isn’t built up at the back of the socket.Then apply a heavier, even coat of solvent cement up to the witness mark on the spigot. Ensure the entire surface is covered.
Make the joint immediately, in a single movement. Do not stop halfway, since the bond will start to set immediately and it will be almost impossible to insert further.
Wipe off excess solvent cement For a neat professional joint wipe off excess solvent cement, with a clean rag, immediately from the outside of the joint.
