Faller plastic cement ???
Posted by Archer1 on Friday, February 25, 2005 9:49 AM
Gents -

Have any of you guys use or have used Faller Plastic cement? It's a liquid in a squeeze bottle, and big with the model railroading crowd, for buildings and things. Nice thing is it has a real long and thin applicator tube, that lets you pin point the application. Just tired it and seems to work pretty well. Not sure of how it hold ups compared to the usual testors liquid or CA.

Any thoiughts welccme.

Hello Archer

I have the orange bottle of faller, it works fine with styrene. This is a cement of the solvent type (like testors) so it only works on plastic.

I also use faller. mostly for the small details stuff. The hollow needle give's you pin-point accuratcy.
As said by Cruiz, it only work on styreen.

Thanks guys!!!

Yes, I know it's only for Stryene. It seems to work well so far, for doing touch ups. Wondering is it's aggressive enough for larger seems? Also, different aroma than the other glues I've used ,and NO, I don't go around huffin' glue!!!

Yeah, I also noticed a different smell. It's probably acetone based (it smells like actetone, don't you think?)
It's nice for small parts. It could be used on large parts. But in my experience the needle is to small to be used on large parts, the flow of glue is to small, leaving you with partially dried parts.
