DESCRIPTION

Black Swan's All Purpose Primer/Cleaner (Purple) is a purple, non-bodied, fast acting solvent used to soften, clean and prepare plastic pipe and fittings prior to assembly.  All Purpose Primer/Cleaner can be used with all types, schedules and classes of PVC and CPVC pipe and fittings.
 


WHY PRIMER IS USED

In most cases a successful solvent cement joint can be made without using a primer/cleaner.  But, if you want to increase probability of making a successful joint, using a primer/cleaner is the thing to do. 

 

All Purpose Primer/Cleaner accomplishes two things.  First, it will clean the pipe and fittings of any dirt, oil, grease and other foreign matter.  If the plastic is dirty before making a connection it will be more difficult for the cement to bond the pipe and fitting together.  Second, All Purpose Primer/Cleaner will soften the plastic.  This allows the cement the opportunity of skipping a step (softening the plastic) and to go immediately to the process of fusing the pipe and fitting together.  Note - softening the plastic in cold weather is especially important because it will noticeably speed up the process of making a solvent cement joint.

 

Using All Purpose Primer/Cleaner is always recommended to make a good connection.  And remember, in most locations using a primer/cleaner is mandatory according to local codes.


 


WHY PURPLE?

Using a "clear" primer/cleaner makes it impossible for any inspector to determine whether a primer/cleaner has been used.  Because of this the market place has called for a primer/cleaner that has a purple color.  In this way an inspector can see the purple color on the pipe and fittings and can know for sure that a primer/cleaner has been used.
 


WHAT TO DO IF ALL PURPOSE PRIMER/CLEANER IS SPILLED

If All Purpose Primer/Cleaner is spilled use All Purpose Primer/Cleaner (Clear) to dilute the purple color.  Depending on the type of surface and the quantity spilled will determine if this solution works.
 


DIRECTIONS

  1. All Purpose Primer/Cleaner is recommended for PVC and CPVC pipe and fittings.
  2. Square cut pipe and remove all dirt and burrs.
  3. Check dry fit of pipe and fitting.  Pipe should easily go into fitting 1/4" to 3/4" of the way.
  4. Apply liberal amount of All Purpose Primer/Cleaner to all surfaces which will be cemented.
  5. After cleaning and priming wait 15 seconds to allow surfaces to soften.  While surface is still wet apply the cement.
  6. Follow the directions provided with the solvent cement to make proper joints.

CAUTION

Avoid contact with eyes, mucous membranes, and prolonged skin contact.  Use only in a well ventilated area.  Avoid prolonged breathing of vapor.  Do not use near heat, sparks or flame.
