Plastic pipe glues, often referred to as ‘Solvent Cements’ are offered in a range of variants from single to multiple use application. With so many types of PVC pipe sealants on the market we choose to sell three PVC glue variants from one of the top European manufacturers.

Pipe Sealant Drying Time Fluid Type Working Conditions
UNI-100® Fast Thixotropic Not for use < +5°C
UNI-100 XT® Average Thixotropic Not for use < +5°C
UNI-100 GT® Average Thixotropic Not for use < +5°C
WDF-05® Extremely Fast Thixotropic Not for use < +5°C
B-25® Fast Thixotropic Not for use < -0°C
HT-120® Fast Thixotropic Not for use < +5°C
 

Approvals and Standards

Many Solvent Cements sold in the UK are required to meet a number of European certification standards, acknowledging them as safe for use within the pressure pipe industry. Certifications and standards may include installation types, pressure, adhesive and drinking water approvals.

Curing Times

For curing times, please view our article Solvent Cement Drying Time. It is important to note that Solvent cement setting times are given for guidance only and can vary depending on a number of factors.

 

Technical Specifications

All 3 sealants share the same technical properties. Temperature resistance is measure at +60°C, peak load 95°C and the chemical resistance of adhesive joints depends on the gap width, drying time, pressure, temperature, type and concentration and medium.

The adhesive joint generally has the same chemical resistance as the material itself. Exceptions to this are a small number of very aggressive chemicals such as concentrated inorganic acids, caustic solutions and strong oxidants.
