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.

Best binding glue

By T. C. Tyler from Portland, OR

This is the only binding glue that I have used. Attending Galloup Lutherie School, this is the glue that they trained us to use. I will not use anything else.

Weld-on cement is an excellent product for installing bindings, purflings and end wedges. I looked for a long time and used many products from other suppliers with varied results. None of the claims the suppliers made were true. With other adhesives the bindings would fall off with a little heat, set to fast or set to slow. Some of them were very difficult to clean. They penetrated the wood and kept reflecting through the finish regardless of how much cleaning I did. Some of them expanded with each coat of sealer. Weld-on sets at a speed I can work with it. It cures so I can start cleaning within a few hours and sand flat and scrap a few hours after that. Thanks Stewmac for offering such a great product.

I have used this product on several instruments that I have built. I really like this product. It does it's job well. Sometimes it is a little stringy but it has out performed anything else that I have tried.

Weld-On is an essential part of my guitar-building world. A little dab will do ya, as the old marketing jingle goes. Run a bead along your routed binding channel, then tape or rubber-band your binding in place.
