Christy's Red Hot Blue Glue PVC Cement - 4 oz
Preferred by Contractors, Christy's Red Hot Blue Glue is the “The Original” Blue Glue that quickly bonds PVC pipe & fittings for fast pressurization and maximum productivity. This high quality, premium formulation is designed to bond in wet, dry and humid conditions and can be used with or without a primer in most non pressurized systems. Use with flexible PVC pond tubing.
DIRECTIONS: For use on rigid and Flexible PVC pipe. Stir and use as is.
1) Cut pipe square, deburr, and wipe clean. Make a trial dry fit – pipe should fit snugly 1/3 – 2/3 snugly into fitting. Use an adequate sized applicator at last 1/2” size of pipe diameter Dauber, brush, roller or swab. Apply Christy’s Primer if required by local code. Uniform Plumbing Code requires the use of a purple primer. CAN BE USED WITHOUT A PRIMER IF LOCAL CODES PERMIT for non-pressure systems up to 6″ and pressure systems below 4″.
2) Apply a full, even coat of cement to outside of pipe and medium coat of cement o inside of fitting. Coat pipe a second time. Quickly assemble joint while cement is still fluid on both parts. If dry, pipe and fitting must be re-coated. Push and rotate pipe into fitting until pipe bottoms in socket. Hold together until joint sets (approx. 30 seconds).
3) Remove excess cement. Leave joint undisturbed for at least 10 minutes. Full joint strength should be reached within 24 hours depending upon temperature and humidity.
