CPVC Cement (Gray) - Heavy Bodied


Black Swan's CPVC Cement Gray – Heavy Bodied is a gray, heavy bodied, reduced VOC emissions, slow setting cement. Used for CPVC pipe and fittings up to 12" and for cold or hot potable water to 180°F (82° C).


Tetrahydrofuran (CAS #109-99-9), Methyl Ethyl Ketone (CAS #78-93-3), Cyclohexanone (CAS #108-94-1).


Store below 110ºF (44ºC). Use only on CPVC plastic. Stir and use as is. If jelled, replace. Use within 2 years of date stamped on bottom of can.

1. Cut pipe square and deburr. Clean and dry joining surfaces.

2. Check dry fit. Pipe should easily go 1/4 to 3/4 of the way into the pipe fitting. Fit should be snug.

3. Use a suitable applicator at least 1/2 size of the pipe diameter; for larger sizes use brush or roller.

4. Apply Black Swan Primer following directions on can. If local code permits, can be used without primer.

5. Apply a full, even layer of cement on the pipe equal to the depth of socket. Coat the fitting socket with a medium layer. Avoid excess and puddling. If necessary, apply a second, full layer on pipe. Cement should fill all gaps.

6. On bell end pipe, do not coat beyond socket depth or allow cement to run beyond bell.

7. Assemble quickly while cement is wet. If not wet, re-coat parts before assembly. Ensure pipe bottoms into fitting socket. Twist 1/8 to 1/4 turn; avoid push-out and allow for initial set, hold for about 30 seconds. Wipe off excess.

8. Allow 15 minutes for good handling strength and 2 hours cure time for temperature above 60ºF (16ºC) before pressure testing up to 180 psi. For pipe sizes over 2", higher pressure, or temperatures below 60º F (16º C), allow longer cure time. For more information, read Black Swan Set and Cure Time Bulletin.

9. Pressure test often so as to eliminate possible large failures.
