2019: ECO™ Series
Weld-On introduced the ECO Series of ultra low VOC solvent cements and primers for irrigation, industrial, pool and spa applications. The ECO Series’ unique, proprietary formula achieves strong bond strength in plastic pipe joints just like Weld-On’s current cements but with 30% lower solvent emissions and odor. With this new environmentally-friendly formula, the ECO Series has ultra low VOC content that is far below the current SCAQMD Rule 1168 VOC limit and will also meet SCAQMD’s proposed VOC limit set to be effective in 2023. The lower rate of solvent emissions and reduced odorous fumes from the ECO Series contributes not only to a better environment but also to improved working conditions for installers.
1997: 724 CPVC
Weld-On introduced 724. It was the first high strength solvent cement for chemical resistant CPVC plastic joints in the market and formulated for use in a variety of harsh chemical applications such as hypochlorites, acids and caustics.
1992: First Low VOC Cement
Weld-On formulated and introduced the first Low VOC (volatile organic compound) emission solvent cement in response to growing air quality concerns. Our low VOC product line meets one of the most stringent air quality standards in the country and most preferred by professionals.
1978: Color-match Acrylic Adhesive
Weld-On developed color-match acrylic adhesive for bonding solid surface countertops.
1958: Weld-On Solvent Cement Patent
IPS Corporation pioneered the solvent welding technique and patented Weld-On solvent cement for use on plastic pipe and fittings. This technique and product revolutionized plumbing in the United States by making plastic pipe installation easy, time-saving and convenient.
1955: First Clear Reactive Acrylic Adhesive
Weld-On developed the first clear, reactive acrylic adhesive that met U.S. Department of Defense military specification (MIL-SPEC) for use on aircraft canopies. This reactive adhesive technology led to the development of other innovative adhesives which are the standard for bonding acrylic, polycarbonate, vinyl, ABS, PVC, PETG, butyrate, metal and other substrates used in many industries: POP display, aquarium fabrication, sign building, etc.
