I know you don’t use a primer on the ABS end but do you on the PVC end when transitioning?

It does not stick to abs vary well at all. I used it on low pressure turtle tank fittings for the filter and it forms a hard shell on the abs, which slides right out of the shell.

Yes it will hold under water. It will hold at 100 psi but that is very high psi. The higher the psi the more likely a rupture will take place. I would not suggest over 70psi

Nope. Just ABS to PVC (or CPVC) transitions.

The International Plumbing Code section 707.1 Prohibits solvent cement joints between different types of plastic pipe. The ASTM 3138 standard listed on the can of cement is not listed in the referenced standards of the IPC. IT IS NOT APPROVED.

I'm assuming your schedule 40 and schedule 80 fittings are both ABS. Are they both black? If so, use Oatey's black ABS cement found here: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Oatey-4-oz-ABS-Cement-309993/100136815

Just clean the ABS with clear, then prime the PVC with purple, then use this green to join the two together. Perfect union!

If it is not marked, and not white, I have trouble telling ABS and PVC apart. This cement is a life saver for me. I can use it for both, as well as joining the two. It is as easy to use as PVC cement. The green color makes it obius what cement you have used. It has done a good job of bonding for me, even with pressurized piping. I guess it isn't allowed in all areas, but that isn't a problem here.

We put in new PVC pipe to our RV so, because we had both ABS and PVC piping, we used this transition cement - worked great. We have used this brand once before so were used to it, the green coloring makes it easy to see the cure time and once it was dried, seemed to be extremely strong. We used it in 4 areas for our RV piping, and 2 areas for our shed workshop.

Below I tried to capture the different types of PVC, ABS and plastic conduit piping I have personally used this product on. Except for high pressure water supply lines, this is just about the ONLY cement one needs to facilitate all sorts of repairs or installations without worry. I have used it to connect PVC drains to ABS drainpipes with never a leak or failure. For supply lines, I take no chances and use a primer and the specific type of cement for the material I have selected

This Oatley 16 ounce can of ABS transition cement is perfect for joining ABS to PVC. Most of the time people use this is when you are connecting new plumbing to old sewer lines. Make sure you cut the pipes in a nice straight line. Make sure the pipes are free of debris. Also make sure you use the Oatley purple primer and cleaner to make sure the cement will bond well. Add the cement and give the pipes a little twist and you will be good to go.

ABS and PVC are different, and cement is not universal. Hence Oatey’s transition cement—clean both pipes like normal, deburr and then clean again if needed, prime the PVC only, then apply to both the ABS and the PVC, insert and twist until it bottoms out, then hold it steady and count to 30 so the pipes don’t back away from each other. Leave it alone for 2-15 minutes (depending on size of pipe) and then in 15 minutes it will be fully cured for me here in AZ with our high temps, low humidity, and no real pressure since it’s ABS. See Oatey’s set up and curing times chart here: https://images.homedepot-static.com/catalog/pdfImages/51/51d30559-9062-4746-88e0-757e714a9360.pdf Locate your pipe type and diameter, run over to temperature, and your times are listed. Easy peasy. Though silly, I really do like the green color; it makes me smile every time. The green in the joint of the two pieces stands out for the inspection, too.

(What's this)
Oatey 16 oz. ABS Transition Cement is ideal for my most recent project. It is applied to a 3/4 Schedule 40 low pressure drainage system. The glued pieces will remain one piece. However, it may need to be repositioned because the project will continue to grow over time. Therefore I have also glued end caps that can be removed, and re-glued as needed. Oatey Transition Cement sets fast get allows an immediate adjustment if needed. I'm confident it will hold under the light pressure required. The light green color is easy to see so I'm not over applying. Odor is low. I only applied very little glue which was less then was on the dauber. No need for a second application of glue. I'm very happy with the clean finish.

This review is for Oatey's ABS to PVC Green Transition Cement, Item # 30925. This specific cement comes in a green 16 ounce can that should last more homeowners quite some time. A lot of people think that one cement will work on all different types of pipe materials. That's not true. Each pipe is joined with its own cement; ABS for ABS pipe, PVC cement for PVC pipe. One exception is like this product, transition cement, that is used in those applications where you need to weld PVC and ABS pipe together. And for that, it is perfect. When I used this cement, I found that if had a very fast setting time, as in the weld is secure and can't be changed. In warm settings, this can be seconds so be sure of your connection before you apply this cement, Full curing time is recommended at 2 hours above 60 degrees and up to 24 hours below 60 degrees F. Oatey is a well regarded American company in business since 1916 and their products are MADE IN THE USA. This is a highly recommended product from the Oatey line.

The Oatey 160z. ABS tranition cement is something all plumbers will need sometime. If you have to cement a transition joint between ABS and PVC pipe. this solvent cement is what to use. I have done many pluming jobs for friends and have needed this cement at times. This cement is a medium-bodied green colored cement for easy identification by inspectors. Very good quality product.
