Blue Glue Solvent Cement is a type of adhesive used in for joining PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) pipes and fittings. It works by softening the surfaces of the pipes and fittings, allowing them to bond together when joined. The blue color helps to easily identify the areas where the adhesive has been applied.
The cement is applied to the inside of the fitting and the end of the pipe, then the pipe is inserted into the fitting and held in place until the solvent cement has fully cured, which typically takes a few hours. The result is a leak-proof joint that is resistant to chemicals, weather, and high pressure.
It is important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully when using Blue Glue Solvent Cement, as improper use can result in a weak joint that may leak or come apart.
