PVC Pipe Primer
Although priming is the first step in most pipe fittings, you can’t truly begin without achieving a clean, square PVC pipe cut— this sets your joint up for success. Because the bottom 20% of the joint is the strongest part, a uniform cut is essential for a proper, tight fit.
After removing burrs, cleaning the surface, and testing the fit of the piping and fitting, it’s time to prime!
PVC pipe primers expedite the penetration and softening of the pipe’s surface as soon as the solvent is applied. Apply a generous coat of primer into the fitting socket, then quickly apply an even coat to the outside of the pipe. IPS Weld-On PVC primers are industrial-grade, fast-acting, and non-bodied, making them a beneficial addition to your pipe fitting process.
IPS Weld-On primers consistently create strong, well-fused joints in conjunction with the appropriate IPS Weld-On PVC cement— together, they create an aggressive bond that will last through any seasonal application. With an easily identifiable purple color option, you can feel confident that you applied the proper amount of primer to achieve successful fittings in minimal time.

PVC Pipe Cement
After a thorough application of primer to the inside of the fitting and outside of the pipe, next comes the cement. Apply an even yet generous coat of cement while the primer is still wet— a too-thin layer will dry before the joint is tight and secure!
It’s important to cover the entire depth of the socket to create the strongest bond. After applying a second thick coat of cement to the inside of the fitting, it’s time to assemble!
While the cement is still wet, join the pipe and fitting together, twisting the pipe a quarter of a turn. Be sure to hold the pipe and fitting together for 30 seconds to allow for a bond to begin to set.
