WELD-ON 4007 is specifically formulated for solvent cementing rigid Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), and foamed
PVC to themselves and each other.
WELD-ON 4007 is recommended for vinyl where a light bodied cement is desired. It is suitable for a wide
variety of applications. It may be used on both large and small assemblies, large displays, signs, lighting
fixtures, house-wares, large and small containers, toys, electrical or electronic assemblies, decorator items,
WELD-ON 4007 is a clear, light bodied, syrupy, free flowing, very fast curing, high strength, solvent cement.
Initial bond forms very quickly so that some parts may be handled within a few minutes of application. Bond
strength continues to develop very rapidly reaching a substantial level within hours. Joints are weather
resistant and will generally have physical and chemical properties similar to those of rigid vinyl.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE
• JOINT PREPARATION: Parts to be joined should fit without forcing. Surfaces should be clean and
smooth. A good machine finish or sanding with 200-400 grit sandpaper should be satisfactory. Some
molded and extruded parts may have a very hard and glossy surface which may require special priming
to prepare the surface prior to cementing. In these cases, contact us for further information.
• APPLICATION OF CEMENT: WELD-ON 4007 can be applied by brush, spray, roller coating, pump-type
oil cans, polyethylene squeeze bottles and other devices. Cement may be applied to one or both
• ASSEMBLY OF PARTS: Assemble while parts are still wet. If cement is applied to one surface, let the
two surfaces be in gentle contact for a few seconds to allow the cement to soften the dry surface. Then
press parts together in firm contact. If both of the parts have been coated, they may be brought firmly
together immediately. The application of pressure of 2 to 10 lbs per square inch should materially
increase bond strength. Spring-loaded clothespins may be very suitable as clamps. The length of time
required for clamp or jig pressure will vary. A few hours or more may be needed for difficult joints, but
only a few minutes for parts that fit well, and have modest load requirements.
Three years expectancy in tightly sealed containers. Stability of the product is limited by the permanence of
the container and the evaporation of the solvent when container is open. Evaporation of solvent will cause
the cement to thicken and reduce its effectiveness.

SAFETY AND ENVIRONMENTAL PRECAUTIONS
This product is a flammable solvent cement. It is considered a hazardous material. In conformance with the
Federal Hazardous Substances Labeling Act, the following hazards and precautions are given. Purchasers
who may re-package this product must also conform to all local, state and federal labeling, safety and other
DANGER! - EXTREMELY FLAMMABLE - VAPOR HARMFUL - MAY BE
HARMFUL IF SWALLOWED - MAY IRRITATE SKIN OR EYES
Keep out of reach of children. Do not take internally. Keep away from heat, spark, open flame and other
sources of ignition. Keep container closed when not in use. Store in the shade between 40ºF and 80ºF. Use
only with adequate ventilation. Avoid breathing of vapors. Atmospheric levels should be maintained below
established exposure limit values contained in Section II and VIII of the Material Safety Data Sheet. If airborne
concentrations exceed those limits, use of a NIOSH-approved organic vapor cartridge respirator with full face-piece
is recommended. The effectiveness of an air-purifying respirator is limited. Use it only for a single short-term
exposure. For emergency and other conditions where short-term exposure guidelines may be exceeded,
use an approved positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus. Do not smoke, eat or drink while working
with this product. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. May cause eye injury. Protective equipment such
as gloves, safety goggles and impervious apron should be used. Carefully read Material Safety Data Sheets
and follow all precautions. Contains Tetrahydrofuran (109-99-9), Methyl Ethyl Ketone (78-93-3) and
Cyclohexanone (108-94-1). Do not use this product for other than intended use.
"Title Ill Section 313 Supplier Notification": This product contains toxic chemicals subject to the reporting
requirements of Section 313 of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act of 1986 and of

Inhalation: If ill effects from inhalation, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If
breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Call physician.
Eye or Skin Contact: Flush with plenty of water for 15 minutes. If irritation persists, get medical attention.
Ingestion: If swallowed, do not induce vomiting. Contact physician immediately.
Every batch of this cement is checked to assure that consistent quality is maintained. An infrared absorption
curve is recorded for each batch to ensure that this cement is properly formulated. Samples are taken from
all batches and kept for a period of at least one year. A batch identification code is stamped on each can.
