The significant reduction of fumes during usage makes for an improved workplace environment for pipe installers. 905ECO has a proprietary compound that significantly increases bond strength. This allows 905ECO to be formulated with greatly reduced amounts of aggressive solvents and yet perform equal to or better than the highest quality solvent cements currently available in the market.
