Cpvc Solvent Cement Adhesive 473ml
When applied, the solvents soften and dissolve the top layer of the pipe and fitting material, loosening its molecular structure. A taper in the fitting socket creates an interference fit that ensures contact between the pipe and fitting. This allows the material to fuse to itself when the two pieces are connected. The CPVC resin is present to fill in any gaps that may exist.
Solvent cement also contains stabilizers that maintain solvent properties and extend its shelf life. Specifically, these stabilizers help protect the solvent cement against heat and oxidation, which can degrade the solution.
