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.
