solvent welding

[′säl·vənt ‚weld·iŋ]
(engineering)
A technique for joining plastic pipework in which a mixture of solvent and cement is applied to the pipe end and to the socket, with the parts then being joined and allowed to set.

Polyolefin wax surfaces are not joint effectively by solvent welding because they are not affected by common solvent and have an admirable resistivity across the chemicals.
Featuring the company's time- and field-proven Certa-Lok mechanical joining system, StraightShot offers the advantages of a smooth, flush joint without the need for costly fusion or solvent welding required with HPDE and fusible PVC pipe.
The easypeel layer can easily be pulled back when cut, to allow simple solvent welding, to further simplify and quicken the installation process.

Some of these include a technique of electret processing after three-dimensional molding or solvent welding by an ultra-audible wave to the outer perimeter of a shape-retaining nonwoven layers separated by electret nonwovens.
Welding for plastics is described in ISO 472 [1] as a process of uniting softened surfaces of materials, generally with the aid of heat (except solvent welding).
Now available from Durapipe UK Ltd is a range of ABS or PVC-U brass-ended threaded fittings, which allow solvent welding of pipework and direct metal to metal connections.
Usually complete assemblies are manufactured from a number of components, which require assembly Although there are a number of methods, vibration welding provides a superior finish in relation to speed, final appearance and most importantly bond strength when compared to hot plate and solvent welding. Vibration welding is finding increased usage in the plastics industry because of its ability to overcome the limitations of conventional assembly methods due to the increasing complexity of parts, their size, material output and quality required.
It is joined by solvent welding. The solvent-weld cement actually melts a small amount off each of the surfaces to form a bond.
* PVC is sealable to itself by heat sealing, radio-frequency (RF) bonding, or solvent welding.
The gluing process is properly called "solvent welding." The solvent melts the plastic, so when you push the pipe and hub together, the two fuse as the solvent evaporates.
The boxes are made from polycarbonate and meet rigorous standards of cleanliness and durability, they also feature solvent welding which ensures a strong, airtight and leak-proof isolated area providing an effective barrier between operators and suspected contaminants.
