Match the solvent to the pipe
For a reliable seal, you have to use the solvent that's formulated for the pipe. All of them contain aggressive solvents and adhesives, so beware of drips and spills.
Poly(vinyl chloride), commonly abbreviated PVC, is the third-most widely produced polymer, after polyethylene and polypropylene. PVC is used in construction because it is more effective than traditional materials such as copper, iron or wood in pipe and profile applications. It can be made softer and more flexible by the addition of plasticizers, the most widely used being phthalates. In this form, it is also used in plumbing, electrical cable insulation, inflatable products and many applications where it replaces rubber.
Pure poly(vinyl chloride) is a white, brittle solid. It is insoluble in alcohol, but slightly soluble in tetrahydrofuran
PVC glue is to be applied liberally to all PVC/CPVC joints, pipes or fittings (by use of a brush) where they are going to be connected together..
