VMS Styrene Cements are finely tuned, extra thin, capillary action adhesives formulated to let you easily cement polystyrene parts. Glue comes in two variants: standard (fast) and delayed (slow).
Use fast type for general cementing, employ slow type for parts that require longer open times such as figures (adjusting limbs) or cementing single track links – easy shape entire tracks, create sagging – tracks will remain flexible around 1 h before they start to stiffen.
No brush included as during our packaging tests cap affixed brushes proved imprecise due to bristle size and bad grip. We advise using standard fine nylon brush for best control and results.
What’s the best technique for precise application of the glue?
Use precision nylon or red sable brush as seen in our videos.
When to use the slow type?
Whenever you need to adjust and align the parts a lot: for tracks, figures (limbs, weapons aligning), complicated frameworks or scratch builds.
When to use the fast type?
For general cementing when no extra aligning needs to be done.
What’s the shelf live of the cement?
Thanks to the formula, glass bottle and PTFE (Teflon®) lined cap your glue will remain usable for a minimum of 5 years!
How effective is the cement?
One model requires around 2.5 ml of cement and bottle holds 30. You will be able to finish around 12 1/35 scale models, if used sparingly the glue will be enough to finish around 20 1/35 scale models.
Do I need to clean brushes after using the glue?
No the remaining glue will dissipate and leave the brush clean. In case of slow cement type you may need to wipe the bristle with a towel for faster result.
