PVC glue - At what low temperature does PVC glue not mend


What is the lowest temperature still safe to work with PVC glue before it becomes a factor in gluing Schedule 80 and Schedule 40 PVC pipe and fittings together.
Thanks you

Hi Michael,

Your choice, Michael, !

I know a guy, now retired, one Bud Schaupmeyer who claimed to have cemented PVC piping at BELOW zero ... for our U.S. colleagues, ie. under 32 degr. F.

I thoroughly trust his honesty ... he was an excellent salesman, too.

Mind you, that thar cement would sure take a little longer to dry out, eh?
