Oatey SCS Introduces New Blue Lava Hot PVC Cement


CLEVELAND, Ohio, May 31, 2011 – Oatey SCS introduces its new Blue Lava PVC solvent cement designed to meet the needs of customers that require a fast acting cement to minimize downtime or for situations where users are in tough working conditions and speed is the most important factor.

“This cement fills a need that we have heard from our customers for a cement that works quicker,” said Diane Artman, Vice President of Marketing for Oatey SCS.  “It was designed to be hot, thick and fast acting so that our customers can get the job done right the first time, and get it done quickly.”

Oatey is the industry leader for providing high quality, high performance cements that meet the needs of every plumbing job. As we find new opportunities and receive user feedback, we act on these ideas to ensure that our product offering is the best in the industry. We provide those innovative solutions utilizing an unmatched level of service through our Service ONE philosophy. 

A few of Blue Lava's best-in-class features include:

  • The hottest cement.  This cement prepares and works the pipe quicker creating a surface area on both the pipe and fitting that allow it to bond very quickly.  This allows the user to finish the job more quickly in situations where access is limited or time is critical.
  • The thickest cement. The thick body makes application easier so that it clings to the surface better which ensures a better joint and less waste.
  • The fastest cement.  The cement cures quickly so that the plumbing system is down for the shortest time and reduces down time.
