E-Z Weld Super Duty Gray is heavy bodied, slow set PVC Solvent Cement. It is viscous (thick) and, carries very good gap filling properties. This cement is ideal for joining large diameter PVC pipes & fittings where the gap between pipes and fittings is large. It may also be used on small diameter pipes and fittings. When joining large diameter pipe & fittings the use of primers is highly recommended. This cement requires little longer cure time.


This cement is good for joining Schedule 40 & 80 PVC pipes and fittings up to 24” diameter interference fit. It is approved for cold water pressure applications. It may also be used for non-pressure applications such as drain, waste, vent, sewer, gas, conduit etc. For superior joint use with EZ Weld Primer, Purple (No.212) Clear (No. 211) or Blue (No. 228).
