DIRECTIONS: The function of Christy’s® Purple Primer is to penetrate and soften the mating surfaces of plastic pipe and fittings to be solvent cemented. This may be considered an optional aid for small diameter piping up through 2” and recommended for sizes 2 1/2” and larger and for Schedule 80 and CPVC or where local codes specify a primer. Use within 3 years of date stamped on bottom of can. Do not use primer on ABS pipe or fittings.
1. To check penetration – while still wet, scrape, scratch or abrade away a few thousandths of the primed surfaces to be bonded.
2. Use proper size applicator (dauber, brush, roller, swab) at least 1/2 the diameter of the pipe. Work into pipe in a scrubbing motion. Do not simply paint-on or wipe on/off with a rag. 3. Avoid puddling primer in joints and excess primer in bell end of pipe. Apply primer to female end first until totally wet and soft.
4. Apply to male end of pipe area equal to female end socket depth.
5. Reapply to female end.
6. Immediately and while surfaces are wet, apply appropriate Christy PVC/CPVC Cement following the instructions on cement can.
7. DO NOT TEST FINISHED JOINT WITH AIR. STORE BETWEEN 40ºF (4ºC) AND 110ºF (43ºC).
