Directions for use
- Before jointing, the pipe fittings should be checked for position and alignment, both being marked to ensure assembly in the correct position. The surfaces to be bonded should be dry, clean and free from dust, grit or loose materials.
- Pipe ends should be smooth and square.
- Thoroughly clean the pipe end and the socket with cleaning fluid. This is essential since the fluid not only cleans but also removes the messy surface.
- Apply a uniform coat of WC137 to both the pipe end and the socket.
- If the preliminary check indicated a tight fit, immediately insert the pipe into the socket with a slight twisting action.
- If the preliminary check indicates a loose fit, allow the first coat of WC137 to dry for five minutes. Apply a second coat of WC137 to both surfaces and assemble the joint as above.
Note: Once the joint is complete it can be handled after only a few minutes but the pipe system must not be used under full pressure for at least six hours.
- Isolate from sources of heat, naked flames and sparks.
- Use under conditions of efficient ventilation. Toxic limits should not normally be exceeded.
- Avoid excessive inhalation of vapour.
- Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
- Do not ingest.
- Store the adhesive in its original sealed container in a dry, well-ventilated flameproof area in the temperature range of 5 – 25°C
