  • PVC TO PVC pipe bonding question.

    He is a different topic for you. In the morning I have to bond PVC pipe to PVC pipe. All I have is a bonding glue that is called transition cement. It clearly states that it is made for bonding PVC to ABS. ---doesn't say anything else.
    Anyone happen to know if it will bond PVC to itself?
    And the joke is,<br />when he awoke his,<br />body was covered in Coke fizz !

    Im a master plumber, You have to use primer first. HAVE TO, then yes it will bond Pvc to pvc. It only states the other materials because some do not. Make sure it is dry, Apply primer. apply cement to both the pipe and fitting, push pipe into fitting and turn pipe 1/4 turn to make sure cement spreads well and hold until dry or it will pop back out.

      A plumber ??? Good to hear from you and that is good news. I don't want to have to drive to town to buy more cement. However, I may have to go buy primer!?!? Is there anything else that will serve as primer? I have a lot of solvents and automotive related plastic adhesion promoters.
      Please tell me of a home made solution ;D
      BTW -This not going to be used to carry liquids of any kind.

        Have to have primer, it not only cleans the surface but causes a chemical reaction that aids in the cement fusing the 2 together. You can get it at any hardware store, maybe even walmart. The cement will do absolutely squat without the primer. Now there is purple primer which is the most abundent to find, but if you want a clean look there is clear.

              Maybe it isn't the correct way to do it but I have glued together a lot of PVC fittings using just the glue without the primer and have NEVER had a failure of any kind.

                    "red hot blue glue" is a common brand that has the primer/glue mix

                      I have never used the primer and i have never had a failure. i always lightly sand the two pieces being glued and then clean them with acetone and immediately apply the glue. never had a pipe come loose.
