problem with testors clear parts cement
Posted by 1940fORD on Friday, September 15, 2017 1:45 PM

I put some on a clear surface and it dried yellow in the center and clear on the edges.

Too thick? Too old? Or? 

Thanks 1940 Ford

I would suggest either age or it has been contaminated with something. Try some watch crystal cement or Micro Crystal Clear from MicroScale. 

My favorite color is clear. I am also ambidexterous, I can screw up equally well with either hand. I am 53 years old and been building for most of that time. :)

From my experience, this is perfectly normal. I do not find that Testors clear parts adhesive dries perfectly clear.

Permatex crystal clear 2 part 5 minute epoxy works beautifully on clear parts or any parts for that matter. Been using it for 12 years and no complaints. Works perfectly Thumbs Up.
