This class of cements are specifically formulated for thermoplastics such as ABS, acrylic (Plexiglass®), polycarbonate, styrene (Lexan®) and rigid uPVC.
The cements use a solvent to soften and slightly ‘melt’ the surfaces being joined. Often the solvent will contain dissolved resin (plastic) of the same type being joined.
It is important that solvent based cements are used on the material for which they are specifically designed. If used on the wrong plastic at best it won't work and at worst toxic fumes could be emitted if a chemical reaction ensues.
