Most helpful customer reviews on Amazon.com
- Works great - nothing beats a glue that essentially down different pieces of plastic and fuses them into one. Great for fixing broken plastic models as it essentially melts the cracks back together rather than just filling it in with a different different material
- Safety cap - The lid of the vial screws on just fine but there is a clear plastic safety cap overtop of it. This cap made it impossible to open the vial as the lid was screwed on so tight that the teeth on the safety cap wouldn't provide enough purchase to get the lid off. I had to cut the safety cap off with a pair of wire-cutters to open the vial for the first time.
- Brush - the brush that came with the vial was a bit frayed when I got it. I had to trim some of the more unruly parts.
Verdict: Had issues with the safety cap that prevented me from even using the cement until i removed it and I had to groom the brush before I was willing to use it for precise application. But the cement itself works great.
Fun: It's satisfying -- if not always thoroughly "fun" -- to be able to fix many plastic items.
Educational: I've learned a fair amount about the different kinds of plastics, including many kinds on which this won't work. Polystyrene is the ideal plastic for this solvent (primarily methyl ethyl ketone).
Durable: used appropriately, one bottle can last many years.
This cement works by dissolving a small amount of the plastic pieces to be bonded together. Too much and you can distort their shape, impairing the bond.
Then you press them together, clamp or hold until the solvent evaporates, and you have reasonably solid plastic. It works even better on broken parts than it does on many model kits because the broken pieces (if not stretched) really fit tightly.
The thin liquid flows easily and quickly from the brush around the pieces to be bonded. Don't let it get on exterior/visible surfaces if you care about their finish.
Paints will interfere with the action of this cement (and others).
Update: the bottle now has an annoying child-resistant over-cap that doesn't seem to be in the picture. I'll probably "accidentally" break it off one of these days... it makes it difficult to close tightly; the padded envelope in which it shipped smelled strongly of solvent, though the bottle still seems reasonably full.
Update 2: I like it even better now that "something" happened to that cap and I can now close it tightly :-)
Update 3 for Wolphe: the bottle contains 1 fluid ounce (29.5mL). Same as my old one, surprisingly... might have thought they'd have shrunk it.
The only negatives are that the brush is rubbish, and the round bottom is more likely to tip over than it would with a square bottom.
So just use up a bottle of Tamiya, and refill with testors cement.
