Solvent bonding is a type of adhesive bonding used to join thermoplastic materials like PVC, UPVC, CPVC; the joining technique has revolutionised commercial plumbing making pipe installations a lot quicker and easier. Plastic pipe solvent cement usage is common today, whether laying new residential and industrial piping systems or refurbishing existing pipes. Depending on the molecular structures of the thermoplastic, the composition of the solvent cement differs. Take the example of PVC, UPVC and CPVC solvent cement products. Ori-Plast is a significant thermoplastic plumbing solution provider in India with a complete range of Polyvinyl pipes, fittings and polymer-specific solvent cement products. Our E-Z Weld CPVC solvent cement is the best choice CPVC bonding product for snap-on, quick fix, premium, high-pressure CPVC plumbing systems.
Choosing the right type and quality of solvent cement is essential for the durability and longevity of piping systems. The best quality solvent CPVC cement products offer,
Cheap unbranded, generic solvent cement products can save a few dimes but cost a lot more in the long term making your plumbing system vulnerable to regular malfunctioning. In comparison, Ori-Plast E-Z Weld CPVC pipe solvent cement is affordable and unmatched in quality.
Solvent bonding differs from regular adhesive bonding. When applied to a polymer surface (pipes and fittings), solvent cement softens the polymer and causes interdiffusion between the two adjacent polymer surfaces. Once the solvent molecules dry up, the two separate, adjoining polymer surfaces turn into a consolidated single polymer substrate. Unlike regular adhesives, solvent cement does not remain as a separate additional layer of adhesive material. CPVC solvent cement is a chemical used to join CPVC pipes. However, irrespective of the polymer, all thermoplastic solvent cement act similarly.
This type of joining is common in modern commercial plumbing as it is solid, inexpensive and doesn’t require special tools or skills to install. CPVC solvent cement comprises three parts:
The solvent usually comprises acetone, and the activator can be either an acid or an aliphatic hydrocarbon. Together these three components create the solvent bonding of CPVC pipes and fittings.

Had to do the entire piping of my new home. My friend told me about Oriplast. Quite satisfied with their product quality.
Got rid of the dripping faucets. These taps from Oriplast are great.
I had to buy a new tank for my house as our previous tank had a gap in its lid section. Finding insects and dead mice became a routine. So this time I tried to be extra careful about buying a tank with a perfectly fitting lid. I found it at Oriplast. Have been using it for a year without issues. Good stuff.
The tank that I bought from Oriplast is strengthy. Good tank at reasonable price. I would recommend it.
