Joining thick-walled flexible hoses and hard PVC fittings



Step 1

Step 1

Measure the length of the pipe and mark this with a permanent marker.

Step 2

Step 2

Saw off the pipe at a right angle to the correct length with a PVC saw or use the Griffon Cable saw for places that are difficult to reach.

Step 3

Step 3

Chamfer the end of the pipe (α =15) with a chamfering tool. For diameters ≤ 63 mm, use the special Griffon chamfering tool. This is done to ensure a better distribution of the cement, to prevent scrapping away the cement and to create a locating edge for easier assembly.

Step 4

Step 4

Deburr the inside of the end of the pipe with the Griffon Deburring tool. This ensures that the pipe end is smooth and whole.

Step 5

Step 5

Measure the insertion depth and mark this (the bonding surface) on the tube. This is important so that excess adhesive is not applied to the pipe, which can corrode the pipe and weaken the joint.

Step 6

Step 6

Mark the correct assembly position of the fitting. Once the joint is made, it cannot be adjusted.

Step 7

Step 7

Clean the inside of the fitting with Griffon Cleaner and the Griffon Cleaner Cloth (lint-free cloth). Cleaning ensures a dirt- and grease-free surface and also provides a chemical pretreatment (pre-soak) for a better bonding. Let the parts dry properly to reduce the chance of condensation.

Step 8

Step 8

Clean the outside of the pipe with Griffon Cleaner and the Griffon Cleaner Cloth (lint-free cloth).

Step 9

Step 9

Apply the cement to the fitting using the special brush (integrated in the cap). The brush which is most suitable for the pipe diameter should be used. Apply a thin layer in the fitting and a somewhat thicker layer to the pipe end. Do not use too much of the cement.

Step 10

Step 10

Apply the cement to the pipe. This sequence (steps 9 & 10) is important because the pipe must otherwise be laid on the (dirty) ground once again.

Step 11

Step 11

Assemble the joint immediately in a flowing, even movement. For a good joint, an even closed ring of cement is now visible at the transition from the pipe to the fitting.

Step 12

Step 12

Remove superfluous cement immediately with the Griffon Cleaner Cloth. Superfluous cement can corrode the pipe and thus weaken it.
