This cement is made with an environmentally friendly water base lacquer that is non-flammable, odorless, quick drying, and is non-yellowing (dries clear). It is excellent as an all-around fly tying cement. The thin viscosity of the cement allows it to penetrate the thread well and creates a very good bond. If you desire to slightly thin the cement even further it can be thinned as much as 10% by adding a tiny amount of water. Water based cements are at their best when used with synthetic materials such as foam, flash materials, and rubber legs which can actually disintegrate when they come into contact with the some solvents. If you happen to accidentally spill some on your desktop clean up is fast and easy – simply wipe off the spilled cement with a wet sponge or rag before it dries. Like other lacquers the product dries by evaporation and can be handled just minutes after application. Several coats can be added in succession to produce a glossy coat if desired. Full cure happens overnight and the product will not dissolve in the water once cured.
