HOW TO USE SOLVENT MATES™
Priming fluid and Solvent apllicators for use in joining PVC pipes and fittings
“A NEW PRODUCT SOLVING AN OLD PROBLEM”
SOLVENT MATESare easy to use, thePRIMING FLUID APPLICATORis primed by simply inserting the absorber pad into the liquid in the priming fluid container, draining the excess fluid as the pad is withdrawn, and placing the lid over the pad onto the rubber seal, then screwing the security cap onto the thread on the lid. The applicator is then ready to use. The applicator handle should be held vertically up when removing it from the lid and any excess fluid that may have collected inside the lid is then tipped onto the absorber pad prior to applying it to the joint. The pad will retain enough liquid to prime many 100mm pipe joints on both sides without having to recharge the pad.
NOTE (1) DO NOT USE THE APPLICATOR DIRECTLY FROM THE CONTAINER OR LEAVE THE PAD IN THE FLUID.
THESOLVENT CEMENT APPLICATORis used by simply removing the lid from the container, and inserting the applicator pad into the liquid until the rubber seal will go no further into the container. The security cap is then screwed on over the rubber seal onto the thread on the top of the container. The applicator is then used directly from the container, and can remain in the container indefinitely, without affecting the durability of the pad. The applicator can be stored by removing it from the container, wiping the pad to remove excess liquid, and then push the lid on over the rubber seal and then retain it with the security cap. The pad will stay moist for a considerable time. Should the pad dry out, it can be revived, by inserting it back into the solvent cement until it softens enough to use it again. The pad will retain enough liquid to coat joints up to 150mm in diameter on both sides, coating the joints evenly, without gaps, thereby providing at all times a sound pressure proof joint, assembled quickly so that the joints can be rotated for alignment if required.
NOTE (2) CARE SHOULD BE TAKEN NOT TO OVERLOAD THE JOINTS WITH CEMENT. ANY EXCESS FLUID CAN BE REMOVED WITH THE PAD BEFORE ASSEMBLING THE JOINT
THE SECURITY CAPSshould at ALL TIMES after each use of the applicators, be screwed on to prevent the spillage of liquids from the lids or containers.
IMPORTANT:THE SAFETY PRECAUTIONS AS DESCRIBED IN THE SAFETY DATA SHEETS OF THE MANUFACTURERS OF SOLVENT CEMENTS AND PRIMING FLUIDS SHOULD BE OBSERVEDAT ALL TIMES.
SOLVENT MATES™— A BETTER ALTERNATIVE
We have listed here MSDS extracts from a large manufacturer and distributor of uPVC solvent cement and priming fluid.
SOLVENT CEMENT MSDS EXTRACT — ACUTE EFFECTS
Inhalation of vapour can result in headaches, dizziness and possible nausea. Inhalation of high concentrations can produce central nervous system depression, which can lead to loss of co-ordination, impaired judgement and if exposure is prolonged, unconsciousness.
Contact with skin may result in irritation. Will have a degreasing action on the skin. Repeated or prolonged skin contact may lead to irritant contact dermatitis.
PRIMING FLUID MSDS EXTRACT — ACUTE EFFECTS
Vapour is irritant to mucous membranes and respiratory tract. Inhalation of vapour can result in headaches, dizziness and possible nausea. Inhalation of high concentrations can produce central nervous system depression, which can lead to loss of co-ordination, impaired judgment and, if exposure is prolonged, unconsciousness.
Contact with skin will result in irritation. Will have a degreasing action on the skin. Repeated or prolonged skin contact may lead to irritant contact dermatitis.
Liquid and vapours are irritating to eyes. Contact can cause corneal injury.
