Answer This Question

A:  Hi, James - No. This is more of a "caulk adhesive" type product, not a solvent weld. Follow the instructions on the can and you should be alright. Thanks.

        A:  Hi, kyis - We're not sure what "poly 3 pipe" is, but the product would not bond PVC to PVC. Think of it as a calk-like product that takes about 24 hours to fully cure and is for non-pressurized applications only.

          A:  Yes this works better than any other glue I have tried to stick triple wall HDPE (high density polyethylene) pipe to PVC fittings.

          Worked for gluing hdpe drainage pipe together because I taped the joints so they would hold together for the 24 hour cure
            Drainage System Adhesive works OK, but slow to cure.
            I bought this adhesive to connect HDPE Drainage pipes to each other and to PVC fittings. It seemed to work fine in the end, but the cure is awkwardly slow, particularly when compared to solvent welding an all-PVC system. Because of this, you pretty much have to glue separate portions of your system at time to prevent dislodging/disturbing recently made joints. All's well that ends well, I suppose.

            Worked great to glue "(ADS) 4 in. x 10 ft. Triplewall Solid Drain Pipe" together. This is a glue not a solvent weld. It gets very tacky when you use it to join the pipe but takes 12 to 24 hours to cure. Make sure you also tape each joint with PVC tile tape like "Prinsco 2 in. x 50 ft. Corrugated Tile Tape" or "Orbit 53550 2" x 50' Pipe Wrap Tape". Taping the joints reinforces them and allows you to immediately move and join more pipe. Taping joints also insures that roots can not work their way into the drain pipe at the joints and potentially clog the drain.
              Worked great on our drain pipe project
                Worked very well for what I was doing and would buy more when I need it again.
                  Glue worked well. Beware it doesn't set right away, it takes a while to dry. I would glue the pipe then wrap it with tile tape, that made it feel real solid.
                    did not glue HDPE. fell apart.

                    Hi Steven, you are correct. We try to state that on the can and in the online information by stating, " SPECIAL NOTE: Although VPC drainage adhesive contains solvents, it is a
                    special purpose contact adhesive and not a solvent cement that is normally
                    used for solvent welding. This adhesive is specially formulated to provide a
                    good bond to triple wall HDPE, UHMWPE, metal, PVC, Vinyl, rubber and
                    Styrene non-pressure drainage systems." This is an adhesive and not a glue, nor cement. ValenciaPipe
                      This is a contact cement. It never truly hardened while I was working with it. It would not hold the newly-cemented joints firmly in place. Since I was cementing drain pipe which already had holes in it, I put screws in the joints to hold them in place.
                        Works well but very slow drying, about 30 minutes before you can move it. This is the only glue I have found that will work on the triple wall drain pipe.

                        Hi, Dirtman - Yes, this is an adhesive vs. a solvent weld product. The longer it sets before moving the assembly, the better. ValenciaPipe
                          The adhesive worked ok. Unfortunately HDPE is really not a plastic that can be glued like a pvc or abs. I was a bit surprised that you can buy Polyethylene drain pipes in any Home Depot location but you can’t buy the adhesive or pvc tape that’s made for these pipes in store. Would be much easier if these items were not just an online buy.
