Questions & Answers

Does this cement require a primer cleaner before useing glue? I did not see any with it.

Asked by: Ace
Yes, you should probably use the primer with it, but it will work without it. The primer will help soften the pipe before you apply the solvent making for a better connection. If in doubt put the primmer on. If you are making an electrical connection some leakage is acceptable so most electricians don't use the primer. Surprisingly to most people, many electrical conduit pipes with live wires in them buried under ground have a lot of water in the pipe.

Can i use this product on ABS sewer drain pipe?

Asked by: JB
There is a better Oatley product for abs drain pipe, but in an emergency, if the joint is clean and dry, this product should work on abs as it is not a pressure connection.

Make sure your surfaces are clean and pre-fit. The glue does not bond immediately, so you have time for "adjusting" the joint, but do not want to try to cut or fit joint after solvent has been applied. I do wish that these type solvents would have a longer "shelf life" once opened, but that is what you have to give up with any solvent based glue.

Although I am not licensed asan electrician, I often have opportunity to perform small repairs As such I’ve had numerous times when a small container like the 8 OZ. PVC ELECTRICAL SOLVENT CEMENT GRAY comes in handy and fills the bill just right to enable cementing conduit together. This can is just perfect for that, as it’s better than having a larger container wheremuch would be unused and then dry up on me.

I really wish that I would be able to title my review instead of having the first lines used as such. I have been using Oatey products for decades. I have never had issues with any of them. I doubt that I would have requested this product if I did not have my experience with Oatey. I don't think that any of them are low VOC products. This one certainly isn't. I would recommend that adequate ventilation has been accomplished before starting to glue anything. This particular product is approved for all classes and schedules of PVC up to 6".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oatey is probably the most used solvent on the market. The company makes a consistent and reliabl... Oatey is probably the most used solvent on the market. The company makes a consistent and reliable product that you can rely on. The real question is "what solvent do you need?" There are many types of this kind of solvent, and you must pick the right product for the job. The regular clear is the most common and can be used on fittings up to 4" diameter. This product will work on the same types of pipe, but since it's a medium duty it can be used on larger pipe up to 6" in diameter. The grey is only for color and does not mean for electrical conduit only. This is a thicker solvent from the regular and will fill in scratches and nicks better. Remember, solvent isn't a glue. It's designed to briefly dissolve the plastic pipe and re-harden to seal the fitting. As in all solvents after you push it in you must rotate the fittings 1/4 turn to mash and spread the solvent so it will make a water tight seal. You also must hold the fitting together because while it initially sets up because the reaction causes it to expand and it will push the fittings out. This only takes a short time, and then you can let go while it drys. Depending on weather, humidity, type of pipe, and size of fittings the drying time can take 2 minutes to 10 minutes, or more. Most water tight seals takes 30 minutes to fully cure before the pipe can be pressurized. Read the instructions to know your application. Two last tips, all solvents will dry up in the can and only have a relatively short shelf life. One way to extend this time is to keep the air out of the can by using pliers to reseal when you are done, and store the can upside down so the liquid will help seal out any air. Even with these measures, it will not last too long. If it is not runny, and has a more gel texture, throw it away and get new solvent. It won't seal or cure and your pipes will pull apart or leak. The second tip is to use disposable gloves, like the ones medical people use, when applying the product. The problem is the solvents will harden on your skin and its a pain to get it all off. If you are using a colored primer and it gets on your skin, it will only come out as your skin gets old and drops off, you will have purple fingers for a while.

This is a must have for the connection of thick walled PVC that we ran the wiring through outside from the junction box to the hot tub. When I pulled out the wrong stuff my electrician friend just smiled and handed me this. He said, "You can probably use it on a lot of other stuff but if you're running wiring in plastic under ground you have to seal with this." It sets up quick and it's easy to use.

In the past, I had used regular PVC cement on electrical conduit pipe. Well no more! This stuff is great. I had been wanting to enclose some wiring in our horse stalls. I purchased 1/2 and 3/4 gray electrical pipe and went to town. The glue is easy to apply, seals quickly and creates a good weather proof connection. Thanks for a great product.
