SciGrip Weld-On Cement

About This Item

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 on the market

(Customer's Reviews)

Some guy wrote a bad review of this glue because he tried to put binding on a guitar that was already painted and it damaged the finish. This person doesn't need to be writing reviews on binding glue when he doesn't know the basic principles of doing a binding job. This binding glue is superior to anything I've ever used on a binding job. Once you have used this stuff, you won't settle for anything else.


Bad glue for painted guitars

(Customer's Reviews)

The instructions leave out the fact that this stuff eats lacquer and I ruined the back of an expensive Martin guitar. Nothing in instructions warned of that possibility. Very poor, StewMac


Weld On Glue

(Customer's Reviews)

A lot of fuss about this glue, but you should NOT try a binding job on any finished guitar! This is my 3rd telecaster binding project and I get glue everywhere, including trying the brush on type super glue. Don't worry about it, stick with StewMac Weld-On glue and you'll have a perfect binding job when its completed. You'll sand off the excess glue during the refinish work anyway. It is Far, Far better to sand off excess glue than to router out a poorly bonded binding job! I get the family to help with the binding job. I use a heat gun first to form the binding to the body and tape in place as I go. After the binding is formed and cool, remove the tape and it will be much easier to install. Later, have one person hold the binding, while the other applies the weld-on glue to the route channel. Have plenty of 3 inch pieces of StewMac tape lightly tacked to the edge of your workbench and grab them as needed. You'll have a perfect and professional looking job to be proud of. Remember - sanding is much better than having to remove a bad binding job and starting all over again!
