STEP 1 - MEASURING
Measure the tube length, and mark it with a permanent marker.
STEP 3 - TAPERING
Taper the pipe end (α = 15) with a chamfering tool. Use the special Griffon chamfering tool for diameters ≤ 63 mm. This ensures a better distribution of the adhesive, preventing the scraping away of glue and creating an easily found edge to simplify mounting.
Step 4 - DEBURRING
Deburring the inside of the pipe end with a deburring tool. This ensures the pipe end is smooth and perfect.
STEP 5 - MARK INSERTION DEPTH
Measure the insertion depth and mark it (the glue level) on the pipe. This is important in order not to apply too much glue on the pipe, which can affect the pipe and weaken the connection.
STEP 6 - MARK MOUNTING POSITION
Mark the correct mounting position of the fitting, once a glue connection is made, it can no longer be adjusted.
Step 7 – CLEANING THE INSIDE
STEP 9 - GLUE THE FITTING
Apply the glue into the fitting using the special brush (integrated in the top). The appropriate brush should be used, depending on the pipe diameter. Apply a thin layer into the fitting, and a somewhat thicker one on the pipe end. Avoid excess glue.
STEP 10 - GLUE PIPE
Apply the glue to the pipe. This sequence (step 9 & 10) is important, otherwise the pipe has to be placed back on the (dirty) floor.
STEP 11 - MOUNT CONNECTION
Mount the connection directly in a smooth, even motion. With proper bonding, a smooth closed glue ring will now be visible at the transition from pipe to fitting.
