Gorilla Glue PVC Cement

Colors:

One-step, low VOC PVC cement

Gorilla PVC Cement PrimaGlue is a self-priming PVC pipe glue that requires no additional primer thus saving time, money and labor, all without exposure to nasty solvents. Unlike other PVC glues, Gorilla PVC Cement PrimaGlue is virtually odorless and cleans up easily with water rather than acetone.

These qualities and more make Gorilla PVC Cement PermaGlue perfect for under-the-sink jobs and home remodels. It can be used on Schedule 40 PVC and class 200 PVC up to 6", as well as on Sch 80 up to 3". This glue is also approved for potable water, DVW, sewer, drain, pressure systems up to 160PSI and 185 °F, and electrical conduit.

NOTE: this product is not approved for ABS or CPVC installations.

Why we like it

Ask any plumber about PVC glue and he or she will tell you it's one of the worst adhesives in terms of its effects on health. Gorilla PVC Cement outperforms regular PVC glue, meets all the plumbing standards, requires no priming AND does not kill your sinuses in the process. It also has a longer setup time and longer shelflife than conventional PVC glue — plus it won't stain your clothes.

Features & benefits

  • Tougher than the pipe itself — meets or exceeds ASTM and IAPMO R&T standards for strength, leakage under pressure, and tightness of bonded joints
  • One-step, self-priming — saves time, money and labor
  • Easy-to-use — water-soluble for quick cleanup
  • Preserves indoor air quality — non-fuming; ultra low-odor
  • Eco-friendly — extremely low VOC

Alert:

The solvent NMP used in Gorilla PVC is neither explosive nor spontaneously flammable in air. It's flash point is over 200 °F. This means it has to be heated to 200 °F before it gives off enough vapors to explode. However, it is combustible. When ignited, NMP will sustain a fire. Therefore, do not smoke when using Gorilla PVC Glue, and don't use it around sparks.

Please note that the manufacturer states on its label: "Warning, this product contains NMP (N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone, NMP), a chemical known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm". There has been a study in California which applied NMP at 100% strength on pregnant rodents for a month, with frequent re-applications to make sure it was still on their skin. The test resulted in smaller size babies. There have been no tests on humans. Although the warning for NMP is required only by the State of California, the manufacturer has chosen to include the warning on product sold in all 50 states. Please note this product is not presented as "non-toxic", although it is "Low VOC, Eco-Friendly and Cleans up with water." It's the only alternative we've found to the nasty PVC glues on the market. But please wear gloves.

Instructions from website: Cut PVC pipe to length so that ends are square. Remove any burrs. Wipe pipe and fitting with a dry paper towel or cloth. Pipe and fittings must be clean and dry for a proper bond. Check for proper fit prior to applying cement. Pipe should slip snugly, one third to two thirds of the way into fitting. If it doesn't, sand as needed. Use applicator (i.e., dauber in cap) to spread an even coating of cement around outside of pipe to a depth equal to depth of fitting. Coat inside of fitting. Keep the pvc cement 3/16" from the end of the pipe in order to minimize the possibility of some of the cement (1) flowing into the interior of the female end during the next step, and (2) a bead of cement forming on the outside edge of the joint. Either of these situations could cause problems due to the solvent not evaporating right away and thus continuing to weaken the pipe as it solvent welds the two pieces together. Push pipe and fittings together while cement is wet. Twist and rotate pipe all the way into fitting. This spreads cement evenly around joint. Work quickly. Adjust orientation for proper alignment before cement hardens. Hold in place for about 1 minute (to prevent male end from backing out). Do not adjust after cement "grabs". Remove any excess cement with a clean, dry paper towel. Allow 3 min. for proper handling strength and 30 min. cure time before pressure testing (to 160 psi). High humidity, cold weather and/or pipe above 2" dia. require longer cure time (in fact, we highly recommend that you wait 24 hours before pressure testing in these cases). Full strength in 24 hours. Run water through finished assembly to flush out excess and neutralize any cement inside pipe. Clean Gorilla PVC from hands with water while still wet. Do not use if jelled. Do not thin! Avoid contact with skin. SPECIFICATIONS: Clear, medium body, dries white. PVC for schedule 80 through 3" dia. and all other classes and schedules through 6" dia. Approved for potable water, DWV sewer, drain, pressure systems to 160 psi, gas, electric, conduit, and hot water to 185 F. Non-flammable but do not expose to open flame. Flash point 204F. Non-combustible per DOT or OSHA specs. Usable temperature range 45 to 140F. Store below 110F Shelf life up to 2 years unopened. For PVC to PVC bonding only. Not approved for ABS or CPVC. UL classified as to fire hazard only. Gorilla PVC is classed 20-30 between kerosene and paraffin oil in respect to the fire hazard. Has some tendency to heat spontaneously, 24CM.
