If inhaled and ill feelings develop, get fresh air and obtain medical attention if ill feelings persist. FOR EMERGENCY FIRST AID INSTRUCTIONS CALL 1-877-740-5015.

FIRE: Use dry chemical, foam, or carbon dioxide extinguisher.
Water spray may be applied to reduce potential vapors or for
cooling. Burning liquid extinguished with water will float and
may re-ignite on surface of water.

SPILLS: Remove all sources of ignition and ventilate area.
Personnel cleaning up the spill should wear appropriate personal protective equipment, including respirators if vapor
concentrations are high. Soak up spill with absorbent material.
Put absorbent material in covered, labeled metal containers.
Dispose of in accordance with local regulations.

A fire or explosion may result if dry granular calcium
hypochlorite is used to disinfect plastic piping systems and is
exposed to organic vapors found in solvent cements, cleaners or primers. Do not disinfect piping system with dry granules. Do
not store dry granular calcium hypochlorite near solvent
cements, cleaners or primers. DO NOT REUSE EMPTY

Directions for Use

Read all directions carefully before using this product.

  • Do not breathe vapors. Use only in well ventilated area. If forced air ventilation is used, be sure it does not cause a fire hazard from solvent vapors. If adequate ventilation cannot be
    provided, wear a NIOSH-approved respirator for organic solvents.
  • Do not use or store near heat, sparks, or flames. Do not smoke, eat or drink when using. Do not take internally. Vapors may accumulate in low places and may ignite explosively.
  • Store and use at temperatures between 40F and 110F. At temperatures outside of this range, special care must be taken to prepare good joints and prevent exposures to solvents.
  • Stir or shake before using; if jelly-like, don't use.
    Keep container closed when not in use.
  • Avoid eye and skin contact - wear safety glasses with side shields and wear rubber gloves.
  • Do not thin.
  • Check local building codes to verify that use of All Purpose Cement is allowed
  1. Square pipe ends and remove all burrs and dirt.
  2. Check dry fit of pipe and fitting. Pipe should easily go 1/3 of the way into the fitting. If the pipe bottoms, it should be snug.
  3. Use a suitable applicator at least 1/2 the size of the pipe diameter. For larger size pipe systems use a natural bristle brush or roller.
  4. Clean pipe and fitting with a listed primer (Do not prime ABS pipe or fittings).
  5. Apply liberal coat of cement to pipe to the depth of the socket; leave no uncoated surface.
  6. Apply a thin coat of cement to inside of fitting; avoid puddling of cement. Puddling can cause weakening and premature failure of pipe or fitting. Apply a second coat of cement to the pipe.
  7. Assemble parts QUICKLY. Cement must be fluid. If cement surface has dried, recoat both parts.
  8. Push pipe FULLY into fitting using a 1/4 turning
    motion until pipe bottoms.
  9. Hold pipe and fitting together for 30 seconds to
    prevent pipe push-out longer at low temperatures. Wipe off excess.
  10. Allow 15 minutes for good handling strength and 2 hours cure time at temperatures above 60F before hydrostatic pressure testing up to 180 psi. Longer cure times may be required at temperatures below 60F or with pipe diameters over 3". DO NOT TEST WITH AIR.

This product is not for use with caustic or acidic chemical solutions. Consult Technical Department for more information.
