One-Step, Solvent Cement Welding
Solvent cement welding is the preferred BlazeMaster CPVC installation method. Often incorrectly referred to as glue, solvent cement fuses the CPVC pipe and fitting together at the molecular level, essentially creating one continuous piece of material.
If properly installed, the joint becomes the thickest and often strongest point on the system. Please review our Complete Guide to Solvent Cement for more details on the solvent cement process.
