Weld-On 1001 is a clear solvent cement of thin syrupy consistency. It cures with the dissipation of solvent at room temperature, forming strong, water resistant joints. Time of cure will vary with materials and application techniques. Bond strength develops slowly. This is particularly true with non-porous materials.
Weld-On 1001 is formulated for bonding a wide variety of plastics such as vinyl, rigid PVC, flexible PVC, foamed PVC, ABS, and non-plastics to themselves and each other. It does not bond styrene, butyrate, polyolefins, or PTFE.
Weld-On 1001 is recommended in building and industrial applications involving rigid or semi-rigid materials, such as vinyl extrusions. For similar applications employing plasticized flexible vinyl, Weld-On 1829 is recommended.

Directions for Use
Clean surfaces to be joined.
Coat each mating surface with Weld-On 1001. Wait about 5 to 10 seconds before assembly of porous material and 10 to 20 seconds when one surface is non-porous, such as glass or metal.
Press parts firmly together. Use clamps or weights until cement has set sufficiently for handling strength.
If parts are strained, do not remove clamps for at least a few hours, depending on materials and room temperature.
Three years in tightly sealed containers stored away from direct sunlight in a cool, dry place 40° – 110°F (5° – 43°C). Storage near the ceiling in non air-conditioned warehouses is not recommended. Shelf life is reduced at higher temperatures and enhanced at lower temperatures. Keep away from sources of heat, open flame, sparks and sunlight. Keep container tightly capped when not in use to prevent evaporation of solvent. Such evaporation can cause the cement to thicken and reduce its effectiveness. The date code of manufacture is stamped on the bottom of the container.
Safety and Environmental Precautions
This product is a flammable, fast evaporating solvent cement. It is considered a hazardous material. In conformance with the Federal Hazardous Substance Labeling Act, the following hazards and precautions are given. Purchasers who may re-package this product must also conform to all local, state, and federal labeling, safety and other regulations. VOC emissions do not exceed 510 grams per liter.
DANGER: FLAMMABLE. VAPOR HARMFUL. MAY BE HARMFUL IF SWALLOWED. MAY IRRITATE SKIN OR EYES.
Keep out of reach of children. Do not take internally. Keep away from heat, spark, open flame and other sources of ignition. Keep container closed when not in use. Store away from direct sunlight between 40º F – 110º F (5º C – 43º C). Use only with adequate ventilation. Avoid breathing of vapors. Atmospheric levels should be maintained below established exposure limit values contained in Section II and VIII of the Material Safety Data Sheet. If airborne concentrations exceed those limits, use of a NIOSH-approved organic vapor cartridge respirator with full face-piece is recommended. The effectiveness of an air-purifying respirator is limited. Use it only for a single short-term exposure. For emergency and other conditions where short-term exposure guidelines may be exceeded, use an approved positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus. Do not smoke, eat or drink while working with this product. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. May cause eye injury. Protective equipment such as gloves, safety goggles and impervious apron should be used. Carefully read Material Safety Data Sheet and follow all precautions.
Contains Methyl Ethyl Ketone (78-93-3) and Toluene (108-88-3). Do not use this product for other than intended use.
"Title III Section 313 Supplier Notification”: This product contains toxic chemicals subject to the reporting requirements of Section 313 of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act of 1986 and of 40CFR372. This information must be included in all Material Safety Data Sheets that are copied and distributed for this material.
Inhalation: If overcome with vapors, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Call physician.
Eye Contact: Flush with plenty of water for 15 minutes and call a physician.
Skin Contact: Wash skin with plenty of soap and water for at least 15 minutes. If irritation develops, get medical attention.
Ingestion: If swallowed, give 1 or 2 glasses of water or milk. Do not induce vomiting. Contact physician or poison control center immediately.
