Solvent Cementing

The solvent-cemented connection in thermoplastic pipe and fittings is the last vital link in a plastic pipe installation. It can mean the success or failure of the system as a whole. Accordingly, it requires the same professional care and attention that are given to other components of the system. There are many solvent cementing techniques published covering step by step procedures on just how to make solvent cemented joints. However if the basic principles involved are explained, known and understood, a better understanding would be gained as to what techniques are necessary to suit particular applications, temperature conditions, and variations in size and fits of pipe and fittings.
