Semi transparent PVC?

Is this fitting acceptable to join with PVC? I haven’t encountered this semi translucent material before. Not to mention lack of primer…

Thanks

Not sure if this is the same type but according to the link here, it is.

I don’t believe that to be the same stuff.
The ‘translucent’ stuff in the first post looks like that cheap China plastic crap you would find in a dollar store that cheap toys are made out of.
