G-S Hypo Cement was invented in 1939 for use in the watchmaking and jewelry repair industries. It is a combination of a fine precision tool and a clear drying, medium-strength cement that will not damage surfaces. The cement is ideal for jewelry, beads, plastic, glass, metal, ceramics, painted or sealed woods and other non-porous surfaces.
This glue is the definitive one to use when re-setting rhinestones into new or collectible vintage jewelry. It will not eat the foil as other glues will. This is a no-waste product that is ideal for many applications. When gluing in rhinestones coat the back of the stone LIGHTLY and SPARINGLY...but completely! and then mount into the cup using tweezers or stone setters.
Full use of the precision applicator tip is maintained by inserting the cap wire into the tube when not in use, and by cleaning excess drops from the outside of the applicator with rubbing alcohol or nail polish remover. This is not an "instant glue." It becomes tacky in 10 - 15 seconds, allows parts to be adjusted, and dries in 10 to 15 minutes. The cement will not bond fingers, and has a slight odor that dissipates quickly. Also great for model making, miniatures, fine screw locking, sealing knots, precision waterproof sealing, precision repairs, optical and technical applications, crafts and hobbies.
