Micro Coat finishes are more than just a pretty look. This is one tough finish, and a real breakthrough in modern formulation of water reducible acrylic resin. For models that get a lot of handling this is the answer. Even the Micro Coat Flat and Satin continue to look like new after a great deal of handling.

There is nothing quite like the new Micro Weld solvent cement. You will find that application is very different from, and easier than the old cement. You will also find that it is much more forgiving and stronger when dry. This adhesive will not craze clear plastic or tend to warp thin plastic like other cements. Since Micro Weld will not lift most paints, it can be used to repair models without repainting. No longer do you need to hold the parts together while applying the adhesive to the seams. You now will have both hands free to position the parts properly.

Apply the new Micro Weld using a small brush in a thin coat on the edges of the parts. The coated edges become very tacky like contact cement. Now join the parts by pressing together. You will have a few seconds to remove or realign the parts for a perfect fit. Avoid getting cement in unwanted areas. You now have a strong bond that is not brittle and will last.

Micro Mask is like masking tape in a bottle. Just apply it with a brush, let it dry, and cut it to any shape you want with a sharp no.11 blade. Peel out the part where you want to paint leaving an outer stencil mask and paint with the method of your choice. Just don't use a water based paint over it, because Micro Mask is water soluble. Use solvent based paints. You can paint the finest details you can cut with a knife. Unlike masking tape that can allow paint to go under it, even the most difficult designs come out sharp and clean with Micro Mask. An easy way to peel Micro Mask off, as soon as the paint is dry enough, is to rub on a piece of masking tape and pull it away quickly. In difficult areas, just use water and a tooth brush and dissolve it away.
