Installation Method of uPVC Pipes

Advantages of the physical and mechanical properties of uPVC pipes and to achieve the desired results:

A. Method of rubber ring joint Installation

1. Ensure that the mating areas of spigot and
    socket are throughly clean.
2. Setting the rubber ring in grove.
3. Assess the full socket depth by simple
    measurement and mark spigot accordingly.
4. Apply lubricant to the spigot side and to the
    inside of the joint on rubber.
5. Accurate axiate alignment of the spigot and
   socket prior to jointing is important, hand feed
   spigot into rubber joint until resistance from the
   inner sealing section is felt.
6. Complete the joint by applying leverage to the
    following socket end using a timer block to
    prevent damage.

Important Notice:
If pipes are cut on site, make sure that the new spigot end are cut square with a fine toothed saw and are rechamfered to half pipe thickness with a coarse file before jointing.

B. Method of solvent welded joint installation:

1. Ensure that both spigot and socket are throughly clean.
2. Mark on spigot the full length of the socket side to make
    sure that the spigot side will fit exactly the socket length.
3. Apply solvent cement to both spigot and socket side with
    an adequate quantity of cement.
4. Inset the pipe quickly into the socket and then turn the
    pipe 1/4 time in the inserting operation so that the solvent
    cement will be spread unformly.
5. Hold for a while untill handling strength is developed and
    then wipe excess solvent cement with a cloth.
6. After jointing keep the joint force from undue stresses for
                                     about ten minutes.

Important Notice:
Close the open tin of solvent cement when not in use, do not work near a naked flame and do not mix cleaning fluid with the solvent cement.
