How To Choose The Right PVC Solvent Cement

PVC solvent cement helps join PVC pipes and fittings, creating strong and leak-proof piping solutions. Selecting the right solvent cement is crucial for ensuring secure connections that are durable and resilient across diverse environmental conditions. Here are certain key factors to consider when choosing solvent cement for your piping systems.

1. Compatibility with Pipe Material

The first and foremost consideration when selecting a solvent cement is its compatibility with the pipes and fittings. Ensure that the solvent cement is specifically formulated for use with the materials. Using an incompatible cement can result in weak or unreliable bonds, leading to leaks and system failures. APL Apollo manufactures PVC solvent cement, CPVC solvent cement, and uPVC solvent cement for leak-proof joints in every situation.

2. Nature of Application

The type of piping system will impact the purchase decision in terms of the volume of solvent cement required as well as the strength. To cater to all demands across residential and industrial projects, APL Apollo offers solvent cement types across sizes, as detailed below:

APL Bond CPVC Solvent Cement is available in tubes of 25 ml and tins of 59 ml, 118 ml, 237 ml, 473 ml, and 946 ml.

APL Bond uPVC Solvent Cement is available in tubes of 25 ml and tins of 59 ml, 118 ml, 237 ml, 473 ml, and 946 ml.

APL Bond PVC Solvent Cement is available in numerous options, including a tube of 25 ml and tins of 50 ml, 100 ml, 250 ml, 500 ml, 1000 ml, and 5000 ml. Additionally, this solvent cement is also available in a plastic bottle in various sizes, such as 50 ml, 100 ml, 250 ml, 500 ml, 1000 ml, and 5000 ml.

3. Setting Time

The setting time is a crucial consideration when purchasing a PVC solvent cement, as it can determine the speed of the plumbing project. APL Apollo’s Bond solvent cement offers high-quality and resilient adhesives with fast setting after application. For this reason, CPVC solvent cement and uPVC solvent cement are used in a diverse range of applications, such as plumbing, agriculture, and drainage systems.

4. Regulatory Compliance

One of the most important considerations when purchasing PVC solvent cement is regulatory compliance. Ensure that you purchase this product from a reputed manufacturer like APL Apollo, known for quality solutions. Poor-quality solvent cement can compromise the joints, leading to leaks and cracks, thus weakening the structural integrity of the entire piping system. APL Apollo’s solvent cements adhere to all ASTM standards and are designed for all systems, such as SDR/SCH/ASTM/CLASSES, in CPVC, uPVC, PVC, and SWR variants.


Choosing the right PVC solvent cement is essential for creating strong, durable, and leak-proof connections in piping systems. Be sure to pick a compatible solvent cement from India’s trusted brand, APL Apollo.
