PVC glue, also known as PVC solvent cement, is a specific type of cement that is commonly used in home repairs. Although it is not recommended for use with iron or copper, it can fill holes and cracks in PVC pipes, securely connect new PVC pipe plumbing and keep lose pipes together. There are a variety of different brands of commercial PVC solvent cement, but you can easily make your own at home.

Mix equal parts Portland cement and sand in the mixing bowl with the mixing stick.

Pour water into the cement and sand while slowly mixing until a paste forms.

Add one part wood fibres to nine parts of the cement, sand and water paste.

Stir the wood fibres and paste with the mixing stick until blended.

Let the paste stand for 24 hours.

Stir one part shredded resin to nine parts of the paste into the mixture slowly. Once blended, the glue is ready for use.
