Good substitute for Tenax?
Posted by mississippivol on Friday, April 06, 2018 2:46 PM

I've run out of tenax. It's been working great with the touch and flow applicator, and I can manipulate seams with it, so I prefer it for major sub assemblies. Now I can't find it. Tamiya xtra thin doesn't work the same for me, and Ambroid seems to evaporate out of the bottle. Anyone have a great substitute?

Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK) in the quart-sized can from the local hardware store.  Observe ventilation precautions

Micro-Mark's Same Stuff is also excellent.

I'm also looking for a alternative to tenax can't seem to find it anymore. Right now I'm using plast-i-weld don't think it's as hot as tenax but it flows good.
