Gorilla PVC Cement - Review

gorilla_pvc.jpg

We were pretty skeptical when we came across Gorilla PVC Cement, simply because it was so different from other glues we’ve used in the past. It doesn’t stink, it’s only one bottle, as opposed to the traditional 2 part PVC glue systems, and it says it’s Earth friendly. There’s no way it can work. Right?

Boy, were we wrong. This stuff is great, and, without question, worthy of the Gorilla Glue name. We found that each of the characteristics listed above made it our go-to PVC glue for standard plumbing repairs. With no primer, it’s easy to use, and without the fumes, you don’t get that ‘White Rabbit” feeling after spending an afternoon gluing pipes under the kitchen sink.

Additionally, we found this product to be excellent when dealing with PVC wood, whether it be Azek or any other brand. After replacing some rotted corner boards with some PVC ones, we glued them together with the Gorilla Glue and within a short period of time, they were completely welded. One thing to note though, is that if you get any glue overflow onto the face of the board, wipe it up quickly or you will be dealing with some permanent scarring.

As an extra test, we glued the ‘end grain’ of two pieces of PVC wood together and tried to break the joint with a hammer. The PVC wood broke, but not on the joint, proving that Gorilla PVC cement is just as strong as anything else out there.
