For use with all our plastic binding products. Fast-drying, high-strength clear acrylic cement that bonds plastics to porous surfaces.

Clamps or binding tapes can be released from the glued bindings in an hour or less, and the bindings can be scraped flush after about 12-hours. 1.5-ounce tube.

Weld-On Cement is best for plastic bindings, or for plastic and wood bindings used together. It sets extremely quickly, so practice on scrap to get a feel for it, and don't try to glue long sections at once. It's thin enough to be worked into crevices. On unfinished instruments, clean up residue with acetone.

WARNING! Contains methylene chloride, methyl ethyl ketone and acrylic resin. These solvents will damage nitrocellulose lacquer and other finishes. Exercise care when using on finished instrument.

I used this along with the stewmac cream binding to add a touch of class to a 2001 les paul special i am working on... works great, but sets up really fast!!! would recommend doing 1 side at a time.... wish is setup a little slower though...

Great Stuff!

It seems to be getting harder and harder to find good adhesives and cements. I originally purchased a tube of this for binding projects, but have come across lots of uses for

Weld-On 16. I don't know of anything that works even as well, let alone any better.

Best used

I have used several different brands of glue for attaching bindings. Weld-On is by far the best holding of all the brands I have used. I have had bindings come loose when I used the other brands, but never with this one. Highly recommend.

Great Binding Cement!

I've tried everything from CA glues to other Weld-On adhesive products. The #16 achieved the best results, especially with plastic bindings. If your prep is done well and you pre-bend with heat, this should work well. I use binding tape and the set time works well with my pace. C-Rocker Guitars

A quick drying binding cement.

By Daniel from Belgrade, MT

This is a good cement for plastic binding when you aren't installing a complicated series of purfling along with the binding. If you are it dries too fast and you'll want to use something slower like Duco cement. If you are doing a quick easy bind or just a simple purflomg combo though it works great. It starts biting almost immediately and doesn't soften the plastic bindings as much so that the cure time is much faster than say with duco, which should be let to dry for at least 2 days before scraping.

I use this on all my vintage Gibson builds where the purfling combos are simple just bound.

I recently use Weld-on cement to bind my Les Paul project guitar. It bonded well, cleaned up easily and held up very well to scraping and sanding scrap. I will be using it again.

Weld On works for me.

I have used Weld On cement for bindings on many guitars and banjos, and it has always worked well for me.

Product did not perform

By Steve K from Dripping Springs, Tx

I used the product on an old Kay guitar that I am restoring. I had the channel freshly routed for a clean start, applied the glue, and used rubber bands (30+) to hold in place. After 48 hours - in 72 degree room with low humidity - I removed the rubber bands and the binding sprung off the guitar. There was only one area on the binding where a little bit of wood came off indicating that there was at least some adheasion in that one two inch area. Not sure why, but this was a product failure in my book.

Weld-On Cement, didn't work at all in my case

By Yigal Zan from Albuquerque, NM, USA

Tried it with a short strip of binding on a banjo, running from the nut to the 5th-string peg. I applied the cement to the surfaces of the neck and the binding, and then, to secure the binding to the neck, I used a band of inner tube rubber, about 5/8'' wide or so, wrapping it very tight like a bandage, over the neck + the binding strip. I left the bound neck overnight. When I removed the rubber band, just before noon on the other day,the biding came off as if there was no gluing effect at all - as if the cement was just water.

The amount of pressure created by the inner tube rubber band method, is quite enormous. So even if clamps provide even more pressure and should have been the way to go, some gluing effect should have been noticed. But there was none at all.

Good stuff

I like this glue. It makes less of a mess than super glue and provides a longer open time. It dries hard as a rock and the bond is excellent. I'll never use super glue again.
