Micro Weld styrene solvent cement.
You will find that application is very much different from, and easier than, other cements. It is much more forgiving than other cements are, stronger when dry, and will not craze clear plastic or tend to warp thin plastic parts like other cements can.
Since it will not “lift” most paints, it can be used to repair models without repainting.
No longer do parts need to be held together while applying adhesive to the seams.
You will now have both hands free to position parts properly.
This is the way to apply Micro Weld:
Using a small artist's brush, apply a thin coat of Micro Weld to the edges of the parts to be joined. The coated edges become very tacky, like contact cement.
Now join the parts by pressing them together. You will have a few seconds to remove
or realign the parts for a perfect fit. Avoid getting cement in unwanted areas, but, if you do, allow a couple of minutes for the cement to dry before touching or you may mar the finish.
That is all there is to it! Be sure to allow the cement to dry completely before painting. You now have a strong bond that is not brittle and will last.
There is another big bonus with the product Micro Weld: It is safe for almost everyone to use,
as there are no health hazards, environmental hazards and is only mildly flammable.
