IPS Weld-On P-68 Primer
Weld-On P-68 Primer is a purple or clear, reduced VOC emissions,nonbodied, fast acting, water-thin solvent. It is distinctly coloured purple so detection of its use in a joint can be made. The strong action of P-68 Primer softens and dissolves the joining surfaces of PVC and CPVC pipe and fittings very rapidly.
Weld-On P-68 Primer, when used in conjunction with appropriate Weld-On cements, will make consistently strong, well fused joints. It is essential that the joining surfaces of pipe and fittings be softened prior to assembly. The main function of this primer is to expedite the penetration and softening of thee surfaces. Its rate of penetration into the joining surfaces is much more rapid than that of cement alone. It is suitable for use with all types, classes and schedules of PVC and CPVC pipe and fittings.
Detailed directions on making solvent cemented joints are printed on the container label. An installation video covering solvent cementing is available. It not only describes the basic principles of solvent cementing, but also covers the handling, storage and use of our products. It is highly recommended that the installer review the instructions supplied by the pipe and fitting manufacturer.
