    My suppliers always had the Azek glue. But I never bought it at a Big Box either.

    Same here the supplier always sent the glue with the product to the site.

    Amazing how fast time goes…Dont use it enough to have come to my own conclusions but my gut say some of the newer acrylic adhesives are the way to go.

    For some reason I just dont trust the straight up PVC glue bond

    Made a bunch of fencing years ago out of azek and used the glue on every joint. It holds really good the fence still looks great today

    How’s the work time on the Azek glue compared to the generic BB store stuff for conduit and PVC?

    I believe that the work time on the Azek glue is longer. I have never had an issue with the work time of regular PVC cement however.

    To make post wraps, we miter all four boards, lay them out next to each other. Then tape them together (still face up). Once aligned and secure, flip it and apply pvc cement to the joints and fold it up using tape again to secure the last joint. I like to use clear packing tape you would get at an office supply store. No screws. When we do use screws, if it is hidden we use SS screws, if it is a face screw situation we use the Cortex. We’ve made hundreds of window surrounds using instant glue SS screws.

    we have done it this way also and occasionally use 18 GA trim nails for a temporary hold. the heads cover with a small dab of caulk and it sturdies them up quick.
