Cutting & Beveling PVC Pipe


Cutting PVC Pipe
A square cut is essential when making a field cut of PVC pipe. PVC pipe can be easily cut with a fine tooth hacksaw or a handsaw. Power type saws with steel blades or abrasive discs can also be used. It is recommended that the pipe be marked around its entire circumference prior to cutting to assure a square cut.

Beveling PVC Pipe

After a pipe is field cut, assure that the pipe is beveled. Use a factory finished beveled end as a guide to determine the angle and the length of the taper. The end may be beveled using a plastic pipe beveling tool, a course file or rasp, or the abrasive disc power tool that was used to cut the pipe.
