ACRIFIX® 1S 0116 Pure-V Solvent Cement is a viscous adhesive that is free of dichloromethane (methylene chloride). While it is translucent, it applies as colorless to light yellow and produces a crystal-clear solvent cement, which allows for transparent edge area bonds.
- Solvent Based Cement
- Crystal clear solvent cement, slight gap filling
- For T- bonds and bonding narrow areas
ACRIFIX® Solvent Cements offer both strength and quick-drying capabilities. The rapid initial bond reaction provides firmness and agility, which is ideal for bonding small parts.
Commonly used for applications such as:
- General-purpose cementing
- Fill in joint gaps made using ACRIFIX® 0107 and 0117
The bond is firm within a short amount of time with its high ultimate strength capabilities. In addition, there is rapid further treatment possible, but one should conduct prior tests if necessary. This product is best for making T-joints and bonding narrow areas of all kinds of uncrosslinked ACRYLITE® acrylic sheet products, but also for other plastics such as ABS, PS, and PVC.

Initial Bond/Subsequent Treatment of Bonded Items
- Tensile shear strength (v = 5 mm/min; butt joints, free from bubbles): Annealing increases the strength and also improves the weather resistance.
Normally, a sawn or milled edge of one article is bonded at right angles to the original surface of another. Avoid bonding in areas where a high-stress level is to be expected or anneal the parts beforehand to relieve stress. The parts to be bonded must be very accurate. Grooves and notches may be only partially filled. Clean the adherents with petroleum ether or isopropyl alcohol before applying the adhesive. ACRIFIX® 1S 0116 is applied from the tube or a nozzled bottle to the edge of one of the items to be bonded, which, starting from one side, is then placed in contact with the second. After a short holding time, the bond is locked in position. When bonding sawn edges, bubble formation can be reduced by passing the edges over with a scraper or smoothing them with a wet abrasive paper (grit 400 to 600 – if possible at right angles to the sheet edge), by milling or diamond cutting before the actual bonding process is started. Slight pressure applied to the bonded surface during drying can also reduce bubble formation.
NOTE: Whitening around the adhesive joint is due to water condensing from the air (especially if the room temperature is low).
