About this deal

I found out the hardware store here sells MEK (but in 3.5 litre tin) so I am going to get it, mix with the Acetone I have lying around the house.

The glue can be used to glue canopies of aircraft models or windscreens of car models without fear of them getting damaged. If you accidentally put the glue where you don’t want it, just wipe it off with a moistened q-tip. The glue is waterproof when cured. For example, a bit of isopropyl alcohol can be used to remove the cured glue. You may choose to restrict the collection or use of your personal information in the following ways: So I ran out of this and the LHS are all closed but not the hardware stores. I began searching for the ingredients and found the MSDS. So sharing here for record and in case others want to know. So I just opened up my bottle of Tamiya Extra thin and I have a few questions. Let me preface this by saying that I've only used Testors plastic cement until now. The cement should not be used to flood the plastic parts because it will take ages for them completely dry. For example, if you use too much glue to join the fuselage halves of an aircraft kit, you will often have to wait days before you can start sanding down the joint. If you start sanding and paining too soon a small ridge-like depression may form at the location of the joint. This is often called a ghost seam line.Leave it to dry without touching it – You will know it’s dry when the glue turns clear from its normal milky color We require this information to understand your needs and provide you with a better service, and in particular for the following reasons: B.w. anybody know ingredients and MSDS ordynary "Tamiya Cement"? Non bottle ordynary "Tamiya Cement" written: "Component Element: 12% Synthetic Resin 88% Styrene Organic Solvent" but of course the chemical composition of these components is not indicated.

As mentioned above, this glue would be ideal for those who are sensitive to the odor of standard model cement, or for younger modelers, with proper adult supervision. It is a definite improvement over the old non toxic cement of the past. Having exhausted trying to glue with Mr.Hobby Mr.Cement S (as for my it's not glue, it's 💩, but this very good cleaner for panel line when you scribing panel line! 💡) It is in fact pretty much the same thing as your regular white glue such as Elmer’s. Now you may be asking what on Earth you should pay so much for such a small bottle of PVA glue. The answer is that, unlike other glues, this one is guaranteed to dry crystal clear. Most normal PVA glues will not be as clear as the Micro Kristal Klear when they cure.

Tamiya EXTRA THIN model cement is used to glue together plastic model kits that use polystyrene plastic. No crevice is too small for this flowing adhesive, which was ... The aim of this series of entries in your SMN Techniques Bank is to help anyone who wants to know more about the different types of glue out there and what they should, and can, be used for. This is especially aimed at any of you who are returning to scale modelling after a long break or perhaps new to the hobby – there is certainly a bewildering choice of products readily available and this entry covers my suggestions and I hope you find it helpful.

Tamiya Extra Thin Cement 40ml - Plastic Glue - 87038

The difference is only in the proportion of components for the glue 50% to 50% for the cleaner 49% to 51% (as far as I can remember, but I may be wrong - the memory can malfunction), as for me 1% is not a very big difference. I think we've got our wires crossed. I have the extra thin. What I want to know is if the normal Tamiya cement, i.e. this: I’ve just got hold of a bottle of Tamiya extra thin cement and I am converted! This stuff is amazing for a lot of things but because it is so runny, I still need the normal viscous type of plastic cement. The brush is a clear plastic tube with clear bristles, and is quite large. Compared to the brush from the extra thin cement, it is huge. Because of the clear material, it is hard to see how much cement is on the brush. It holds a lot. If taken from the bottle and applied directly to a model, cement will be running all over the place, so it would be best to replace the brush with a spare from a used extra thin bottle, or use a fine paint brush. Roll forward 30 years, and as I was looking for model kits for my kids, I saw Tamiya liquid model cement in a 40ml bottle with Limonene added. It is marketed as non toxic, safe to use, and still strong bonding. As I have used Tamiya extra thin cement for some time, and liked the product, I decided to try a bottle of this cement to see if it would be safe for the kids to use.Micro Kristal Klear is a glue which is typically used to glue clear parts to create small windows up to about ¼ square inch. They are the best types of cements for plastics. I've been using them for 19 years, and I wont use anything else now. But the problem is that my local hobby-shop does not have a cleaner either, but the factory and the household market have chemical components for making this glue myself. This cement is for use in assembling plastic (styrene) models. It comes is a stable hexagonal bottle 47mm tall.

B.w. the irritating odor in Tamiya glue creates acetone, because butyl acetate smells like pear, and has the colloquial name "pear essence". and Mr. Hobby Mr.Cement something with the help, I took this advice ...in results, now I have 1 liter "Tamiya Extra Thin Cement" my own manufacturing! 😉 😁 😎 All you need to apply is to have a debit or credit card, to be over 18 years of age, and to be a resident of country offering Afterpay Warning– You must be careful with the thin plastic cement. When you are pressing the pieces together and you manage to accidentally touch your own finger with the brush, you will end up with your fingerprint imprinted into the surface of the plastic part. It is not difficult to fix with sandpaper and/or putty but it’s extremely annoying. You’ve been warned. As the name suggests, this type of cement has a much thinner consistency than the regular one. That means these types are used in a slightly different manner. You can essentially dry-fit the parts together and then use a fine brush to run a small amount of the glue around the seams of the parts. Thanks to the capillary action of the thin liquid, the cement will find its way between the dry-fitted parts and weld them together. This is especially useful for smaller parts; however, some modelers use these glues for the whole model.I've used MEK before with excellent results - that's just MEK with no Acetone admixture. It's pretty volatile so good ventilation is a must. In the past, when I was young and daft, I've even used it to attach canopies with no problems
