PVC Solvent Cement is an adhesive formulated to affix two or more pipes, or to connect a pipe to a fitting or a fitting to a fitting. They consist of CPVC resin, stabilizers and fillers dissolved in a cocktail of solvents.
With every electrical installation, conduit pipes and their fittings are bent, cut and fastened. To make these installations safe, we need to use PVC solvent cement. It helps us to permanently secure the electrical installations and avoid maintenance work due to wear and tear over time.
When applied, the solvent breaks down the top layers of the PVC connecting pipes, and further resins present in the solvent fills the gap to cement the two PVC pieces together.
