There is nothing quite like the new Micro Weld styrene solvent cement, and you will find that application, although easier, is very much different from the old. You will also find that it is much more forgiving, stronger when dry, and will not craze clear plastic or tend to warp thin plastic parts like other cements. Since it will not ""lift"" most paints, it can be used to repair models without repainting. No longer do you need to hold the parts together while applying adhesive to the seams. You will now have both hands free to position parts properly".
