Pvc Purple Primer Pc-64
The Weld-On® PC-64™ is a purple, low VOC emission, non-bodied, solvent primer-conditioner. This product is specifically designed to prepare PVC and CPVC plastic pipe and fitting surfaces for bonding with solvent cements.
WELD-ON PC-64 is suitable for use with all types, classes and schedules of PVC and CPVC pipe and fittings. PC-64 removes grease, oil and dirt from the bonding surfaces of PVC and CPVC pipe and fittings. It also penetrates and softens the pipe and fittings surfaces in preparation for solvent cement application.
WELD-ON PC-64 purple is available in the following sizes: pint (473 ml), quart (946 ml) and gallon (3.785 l) metal cans.

The shelf life for this product is 3 years in tightly sealed containers. The date code of manufacture is stamped on the bottom of the container. Stability of the product is limited by the evaporation of the solvent when the container is opened. Evaporation of the solvent will also cause the primer’s effectiveness to be reduced. Do not mix new primer or cleaner with partially used or expired primer or cleaner.
Weld-On PC-64 is carefully evaluated to ensure that consistently high quality is maintained. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, gas chromatography, and additional in-depth testing ensures each batch is manufactured to exacting standards. A batch identification code is stamped on each can and assures traceability of all materials and processes used in manufacturing this product.
Weld-On solvent cements must never be used in PVC piping system using or being tested by compressed air or gases; including air-over-water booster. If using in conjunction with flue gas ventilation systems, review the recommendations of the HVAC manufacturer’s equipment related to installation and venting. Note that such recommendations may only refer to ASTM standards addressing installation of PVC pipe and fittings, and not to the use of PVC pipe and fittings in flue gas ventilation systems. Also, review the technical information available from manufacturers of PVC pipe and fittings concerning the use of their products in flue gas ventilation systems.
Do not use a dry granular calcium hypochlorite as a disinfecting material for water purification in potable water piping systems. The introduction of granules or pellets of calcium hypochlorite with PVC solvent cements and primers (including their vapors) may result in a violent chemical reaction if a water solution is not used. It is advisable to purify lines by pumping chlorinated water into the piping system – this solution will be nonvolatile. Furthermore, dry granular calcium hypochlorite should not be stored or used near solvent cements and primers.
This product is intended for use by skilled individuals at their own risk. Installers should verify for themselves that they can make satisfactory joints under varying conditions. Detailed directions on making solvent cemented joints are printed on the container label. It is highly recommended that the installer review the instructions supplied by the pipe and fitting manufacturer.
