Squadron Plastic Weld versus Tamiya Extra Thin Cement
Posted by Allessio77 on Thursday, May 16, 2019 10:07 AM

I dropped my bottle of Tamiya Cement and wondering if Squadron Plastic Weld is a similar product. (I am having trouble finding a quick replacement bottle of Tamiya). Compare and contrast thems items if you have used both. Thanks.

squadron’s glue smells like methyl ethyl ketone (MEK).  The label has all sorts of health hazard warnings typically associated with MEK. 

Tamiya’s is ‘fruitier’,  more of a lacquer thinner smell.  MSDS says butyl acetate and acetone.   Similar OMG health warnings.  

Google MSDS & Tamiya Glue.  Same for Squadron

Do they behave the same on plastic? Same drying time? Is Squardron thin like the Tamiya?

Yes they work the same but Tamiya is low odor.

Testor's thin liquid cement also works pretty well, though I don't think it flows quite as well as Tamiya's extra thin.
