How to glue PVC Trim together

Gluing PVC Trim together can be done effectively using the right adhesive.  

PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is a type of plastic that requires a specific adhesive for proper bonding.  

Materials Needed

PVC Trim

PVC Trim

PVC Trim is made of PVC Foam Board. Ensure that the surfaces to be glued are clean and free of any dust or debris.

PVC Adhesive

Use a solvent-based PVC adhesive specifically designed for bonding PVC materials.  


A brush or applicator that comes with the adhesive can be used to apply the glue.


Prepare the Surfaces

PVC foam board

Clean the surfaces of the PVC trim pieces to be glued.  

Ensure they are free of dirt, grease, or any contaminants.

Roughen the bonding surfaces slightly with fine-grit sandpaper.  

This helps the adhesive to adhere better.

Apply the Adhesive

Open the PVC adhesive container and stir or shake it well, following the manufacturer's instructions.

Use an applicator or brush to apply a thin and even layer of the adhesive to one of the surfaces.

Assemble the Pieces

Press the PVC trim pieces together immediately after applying the adhesive.  Make sure the pieces are properly aligned.

Hold in Place:

Hold the glued pieces firmly in place for the time specified by the adhesive manufacturer.  This allows the adhesive to set and bond the PVC pieces together.

Wipe off Excess Adhesive

Quickly wipe off any excess adhesive that may have squeezed out from the joint.  You can use a clean cloth or a solvent recommended by the adhesive manufacturer.

Curing Time

Allow sufficient curing time as per the manufacturer's instructions before subjecting the bonded PVC to stress or load.

Finish and Clean Up

Once the adhesive has fully cured, you can sand or trim any excess material if necessary.  

Clean any remaining residue with the recommended solvent.
