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. Clean up residue with acetone.

Contains methylene chloride, methyl ethyl ketone and acrylic resin.

This works great for both wood and plastic binding. Just wear gloves and use in a ventilated area.

I did a little test with this glue, with acrylic binding bought from Stewmac, and I have to say, it did not impress me. I feel that a CA glue has been stronger in my binding tests. I didn't really melt the material in the way it's been described too, and I gobbed it on. I feel like I'll probably do some more tests, but my first impression of the product was not too good.

Stuff really works

I use to use acetone for binding lamination and Weld-On for gluing the binding to the guitar body. When I used two separate binding materials once the acetone did not adhere and separated so I tried Weld-On and regardless of binding plastic I had solid adhesion and it did not separate when heated to shape the binding to body shape. Also if necessary, this glue will release easily from body binding adhesion for adjustment with acetone. In addition this glue has a very thin fluidity and flows into desired areas with ease. Love this product.

Good glue, lousy tube

This stuff really works well. But, the tube needs some rethinking. Too much glue comes out making it very hard to limit the amount that bleeds over onto other surfaces. A plastic adapter like you find with model cement would be a great addition to an otherwise fine product.

Binding cement

I used to use 'Weld-On' but because you cannot freight 'Weld-On' cement to Australia, I spent some time trying to find an equivalent here. I know that some luthiers in Oz are still experiencing difficulty getting good cement. I think I have the answer.

There is a product that has been sold here for years called 'Tarzan's Grip' it is acetone based and I have had great success with it. I make archtop guitars inspired by Bob Benedetto. Of course most, if not, all my specialized tools I bought from StewMac over the years. Thanks for your valuable info. I enclose my second archtop pic. cheers Rick Coburn.

It works great but you need to work quick.

Used this for my first attempt at binding. Easy to work with but felt like I had to work really fast as the change from liquid to gum was quick. Fine line between using enough to coat all surfaces and having too much to try and wipe off, maybe I will use a different application method opposed to using straight from the tube.

Easy to use, even for a beginner.

I am just entering the world of guitar making, and needed to place some synthetic abalone binding. This stuff worked really well for a first-timer using binding. It was viscous enough that it didn't run all over the place, but was still easy to apply. I would place a small amount of cement in a disposable plastic tray, and used a brush to apply it uniformly to about 3-4" of the binding channel at a time. The results were pretty darn good. The photo shows the binding with unfinished top wood.

Perfect combination

I purchased Weld-On Cement from Stew-Mac after failing to find it in stores and found it easy and fast to work with when combined with Stew-Mac binding.
