Cementing

Parts that are to be solvent cemented must be clean. Any residual mold release agents or mold polishing compounds can inhibit solvent bonding.

Parts should be washed with a solution of mild soap or detergent. A clean, soft cloth and light pressure should be used. Rinse parts with clean water and dry by blotting with a damp cloth or chamois.

DO NOT USE: Window cleaning sprays, kitchen scouring compounds, or solvents, such as acetone, gasoline, benzene, alcohol, carbon tetrachloride or paint thinner. These cleaning materials can scratch the surface and/or cause small surface cracks (crazing), thus weakening the part.
