New reduced hazard (THF free) solvent cement for PVC-U

We are delighted to announce the launch of our new Durapipe RH PVC-U Solvent Cement; this reduced hazard product has been re-formulated to be completely THF Free and is suitable for all Durapipe FIP PVC-U pressure pipework systems.

Due to recent environmental and safety concerns surrounding Tetrahydrofuran (THF) and formulations containing THF being reclassified, we have developed a new reduced hazard formulation of our PVC-U solvent cement, which is completely THF Free.

This fully WRAS approved product can offer high performance and hassle free solvent cement jointing, which can be applied in the same way as the existing Durapipe One-Step solvent cement option, while offering the same drying times. Commenting on the new product launch, Rich Pedley our Industrial Brand Manager said, “We are always keen to react to any pressures within the industry and this is no exception, with offering a unique level of safety to the user always at the forefront of any development project”

The new reduced hazard product will run alongside our current offering of both PVC-U one step solvent cement and HCR Chemically Resistant Cement, providing a variety of options for the end user.

Durapipe RH PVC Solvent Cement is fully UK stocked and is available now on product code: 03462397. The new product will benefit from a lower UK list price than the existing option.

Durapipe UK offer a range of solvent cement systems that are easy to install across a variety of pressure plastic pipework systems including, Durapipe SuperFLO ABS, Durapipe Corzan CPVC, Durapipe Guardian and Durapipe Airline Xtra. Our solvent welded pipework systems offer a one-step jointing process, that are easy to install with no requirement for hot works permits or special tooling, while benefiting from quick drying times.
