Joining {short description of image}Tubing & Fittings

1- Cutting
ECOTUBE tubing can be easily cut with a wheel-type plastic tube cutter, a hack saw or other fine toothed hand or power saws. Use of ratchet cutters is permitted, provided blades are sharpened regularly. A miter box should be used to ensure a square cut when using a saw. Cutting tube as squarely as possible provides optimal bonding area within the joint. If any indication of damage or cracking is evident at the tube end, cut off at least 5 cm beyond any visible crack.
2- Deburring / Beveling.
Burrs and fillings can prevent proper contact between tube and fitting during assembly, and should be from the outside and inside of the tubing. A chamfering tool is preferred but a pocketknife or file are suitable for this purpose. A slight bevel on the end of the tubing will ease entry of the tubing into the fitting socket and minimize the chances of pushing solvent cement to the bottom of the joint.
3- Fitting Preparation.
Wipe any dirt or moisture from the fitting sockets and tubing end. Check the dry fit of the tubing and fitting. The tubing should make contact with the socket wall 1/3 to 2/3 of the way into the fitting socket. At this stage, tubing should not bottom out in the socket.
4 & 5. Primer / Cleaner Application
Primer or cleaner prepares the bonding area for the addition of cement and subsequent assembly. It is important to use a proper applicator. A dauber or natural bristle paint brush approximately 1/2 the size of the tubing diameter is appropriate. Apply primer to both the outside of the tubing end and in the fitting socket. Do not allow primer to puddle in the fitting

6 & 7. Solvent Cement Application
Use only CPVC cement otherwise joint failure may result. When the primed pipe and fitting surfaces are dry, apply a heavy, even coat of cement on the tubing end. Apply a thin coat inside the fitting socket.

8. Assembly
Immediately insert the tubing into the fitting socket, rotating the tubing 1/4 to 1/2 turn while inserting. This motion ensures an even distribution of cement within the joint. Properly align the fitting. Hold the assembly for approximately 10 seconds, allowing the joint to set-up. An even bead of cement should be evident around the joint. If this bead is not continuous around the socket edge, it may indicate that insufficient cement was applied. In this case, remake the joint to avoid potential leaks. Wipe excess cement from the tubing and fittings surfaces for an attractive, professional appearance.
