Griffon ABS Solvent Pipe and Fittings Cleaner
Griffon PVC & ABS pipe cleaner is ideal for preparing your piepwork prior to solvent weldiing.
All pipe surfaces should be thoroughly cleaned with pipe cleaner. The cleaner is formulated to remove surface dirt and any oil or grease that exists on the pipe from the manufacturing process.
Pipe cleaner contains more aggressive solvents and will soften the pipe surface to allow the solvent cement to penetrate more effectively. Primer is often required by plumbing code and sometimes a purple colored primer (purple primer) is needed.
Please be aware that swimming pool pipework is sized from the INSIDE and subsequently LOOKS bigger from the outside (most people wrongly believe their pipework is 2″). We have placed a picture under the PDF download section showing the 2 common sizes in relation to everyday standard AA & 9V Duracell batteries as an easily referable scale.
Please see our downloads section for exploded views of all the various fittings showing the different configurations for sockets, threads, male & female fittings.
Please also read our ABS fittings guide in the download section for further technical help.
Once opened, the glue will have a reduced shelf life, so please ensure you replace the lid in between applications, to reduce the evaporation of the solvants within the glue, and usually use within 3 to 6 months once opened.
