Re: 3M contact adhesive between 2 release layers 467MP

I will second what the Doctor said and point out that his most valuable tip for using Barge Cement is to drill a .020 hole in the center of the cap.  This facilitates the application of small amounts and the straight pin used to plug the hole also makes a useful applicator.

About 15 years years ago, I began using Barge Cement routinely for one step mounting of running boards- metal, plastic, and wood. A tiny amount does it; the boards almost immediately are tacked-down, the setting time allows manipulation and/or the application of "contact" methods, and…. the boards stay. These are few downsides.  It is right on my mind as I speak inasmuch as I just negotiated with Barge Cement a neat but ornery retrofit of a Kadee running board on a model not designed for it.


For a long time, Barge Cement has for me been one of the most important and useful glues in my model adhesive armamentarium.
