Can I cement together PVC trim boards?

I have an application for PVC trim that includes outside corners, and I can't find the boards I need. I would like to build my own corner trim, and I'm wondering if I can cement them together to make the corners stronger, just like PVC pipes. I would also use nails or screws, but I'm looking for a very strong water-tight result.

yes you can. Menards sells preassembled Certainteed vinyl corners, but you could also make your own. Home Depot sells Azek glue which is just a slower setting PVC glue. Plumbers glue dries too fast to be useful for large objects. Duofast Trimbonder is probably the best, it's a 2 part epoxy that's white like the PVC and can be used as both a glue and a filler. It's what i would use if I was going to assemble a corner.
