Product Description

Uni-Weld 8700 Series Purple Primer is a purple-tinted primer recommended for use with PVC and CPVC pipe and fittings.

Directions for use: (Read all directions carefully before using this product.)

1. Square pipe ends and remove all burrs and dirt.

2. Check dry fit of pipe and fitting. Pipe should easily go 1/3 of the way into the fitting. If the pipe bottoms, it should be snug.

3. Use a suitable applicator at least 1/2 the size of the pipe diameter. For larger size pipe systems use a natural bristle brush or roller.

4. Apply thoroughly to outside surface of the pipe to the depth of the fitting and inside of the fitting socket.

5. Use appropriate solvent cement for the pipe being joined. DO NOT TEST WITH AIR. This product is not for use with caustic or acidic chemical solutions. Consult manufacturer for more information.
