Gardena, California – September 13, 2013 – Weld-On Adhesives, Inc., once again leads the industry in innovation and introduces the new, patent-pending Weld-On® SuperSwab™, a universal, convertible length applicator for use in applying primers and solvent cements to plastic pipes and fittings. Meticulously designed by Weld-On engineers, the SuperSwab has two components: disposable swab and reusable handle. The all new swab uses shed-resistant material and is outstanding for full, smooth application of primers and solvent cements. The Weld-On SuperSwab handle is sturdy and extra-long for convenient grip and has a one-piece molded dual cap that fits both Weld-On quart and gallon containers.

“Key benefits of the SuperSwab are versatility and ease of use,” said Terry McPherson, Vice President – Technical Service and one of the SuperSwab’s inventors. “The handle is engineered in a way that the swab length can be adjusted for use in both quart and gallon containers – very convenient. The SuperSwab also has an easy grip. When it is used to apply Weld-On products onto the pipe and fittings, you can feel that the application is smooth and quick – more so than any other applicator on the market. I’m confident that the SuperSwab is the best applicator developed for our industry,” added McPherson.
