testing pvc cement in the name of science

Unread postAuthor: squishie » Tue May 04, 2010 11:53 am

i recently found some pvc in my shed and decided to build a cannon, i also found a old container of pvc cement/glue that had passed it use by date by quite some time. it has some what gotten much thicker some where between honey and jelly and also smells a lot worse.

so over the past couple of days iv been using it to build a cannon and it has given some rather odd results.
it not only is harder to use (got sick trying to use a brush so im using a butter knife to smear it on) it also takes much longer to dry but it does have it's pros it seems to be far superior strength wise then a new bottle.

this is just my 2cents clearly the results will vary from band's and for the love of god dont depend on my results when building your own cannon

I would not trust the glue. I hope you are not building anything more powerful than a spray and pray. The gun will not likely hold together.

You found something that the manufacturer and their team of engineers determined is "past its prime", decided to use it anyway, and then you've somehow determined that it has "superior strength"?

I would very much like more details of your experimentation procedure which lead you to this remarkable conclusion. :shock:

I used that once and could never get a seal, not sure if it was the pvc glue or the soda bottle, a can of glue costs under 2 bucks, do yourself a favor and get a new bottle

Guys he said it was a test :)

But I agree with them... you probably shouldn't trust it for anything more than a spray and pray. We don't need another accident.

Yeah, I guess but there has to be a better way to test it than using it to build a gun. By the way that accident didnt occur from a failed joint, he accidently got shot in the eye

I know, but it can result in the same thing.

Questionable parts are my bread and butter, hence the disproportionate amount of fail. Win is not made of epoxy :wink:

As to the fact that I seem to be featured in Gun Freak's sig, well you would have creamed your pants too :P

Well depends how you define questionable, in your case the manufacturer specifically said not to use it, but then again they also specifically said PVC pipe was not for compressed air but in my opinion it's a bad idea and shouldn't be used
