With a low odour, this medium strength cement dries clear and will not yellow over time or damage surfaces, or bond your fingers together! The glue will become tacky in 10-15 minutes allowing parts to be re-positioned before it sets when the cement becomes fully dry after 1 hour, whilst retaining some flexibility. The cement can be easily removed with rubbing alcohol or nail polish remover. Recommended for non-porous surfaces and for waterproof sealing.

Tips & Tricks:
- Flatten tube as you use it up rather than rolling it
- On first use you may not need to squeeze the tube, glue will most probably come out by itself
- Insert cap wire when not in use to prevent it from drying out
- Clean needle-point area with rubbing alcohol before closing cap
- Complete instructions are included in the box
Helpful Note 1: Retains some flexibility, won't crack or become brittle and is therefore great for sealing the ends of silk, satin and leather cords in bead work.
Helpful Note 2: Will adhere metal to metal, plastic to metal, plastic to plastic, ceramic to ceramic, ceramic to metal....and so on.
Helpful Note 3: Make sure the areas you are bonding are free and clean of dirt and grease (Rodico is ideal for removing all traces of grease and dirt).
Helpful Note 4: Not intended to bond large surface areas together. Ideal for small cabochons, rhinestones, pearls and small beads in jewellery work.
Helpful Note 5: When you've applied the glue to the required areas stop the flow by placing the applicator onto some tissue or an alcohol soaked sponge (the small artists or make-up sponges are very useful for this) before replacing the cap wire. This way you'll be wasting none of the precious glue.
