STEP 1 - MEASURING
Measure the tube length, and mark it with a permanent marker.
STEP 3 - CHAMFERING
Chamfer the pipe end (α = 15) with a chamfering tool. Use the special Griffon chamfering tool for diameters ≤ 63 mm. This ensures a better distribution of the adhesive, preventing the scraping away of the adhesive and creating an easily found edge to simplify mounting.
Step 4 - DEBURRING
Deburring the inside of the pipe end with a deburring tool. This ensures the pipe end is smooth and perfect.
STEP 5 - MARK INSERTION DEPTH
Mark the insertion depth on the pipe. This is important in order not to apply too much adhesive on the pipe, which can affect the pipe and weaken the connection.
STEP 6 - MARK MOUNTING POSITION
Mark the correct mounting position of the fitting, once a connection is made, it can no longer be adjusted.
Step 7 – CLEANING THE INSIDE
STEP 9 - APPLY ADHESIVE TO THE FITTING
Apply the adhesive into the fitting using the special brush (integrated in the top). The appropriate brush should be used, depending on the pipe diameter. Apply a thin layer into the fitting, and a somewhat thicker one on the pipe end. Avoid excesses.
STEP 10 - APPLY ADHESIVE TO THE PIPE
Apply the adhesive to the pipe. This sequence (step 9 & 10) is important, otherwise the pipe has to be placed back on the (dirty) floor.
STEP 11 - MOUNT CONNECTION
Mount the connection directly in a smooth, even motion. With proper bonding, a smooth closed adhesive ring will now be visible at the transition from pipe to fitting.
