Waspi head cement

Recommended Posts

I have some Waspi head cement and every time I use it it drys " milky looking " not clear. It is solvent based .  The thread is some Ultra and Danville 210 flat lightly waxed and also some polyester thread,, " milky " on all of these.

I would like to have something that I can have in a dropper bottle with a needle type tip as I am tying. Using Bucktail and sometimes some synthetic type hair from LPO.

Thanks.

It could be the solvent is reacting to the wax on the thread, I do not use any thread with wax on for my bucktails, and I use clear lacquer from the auto store, it is premixed and I just poke 2 holes in the top, and put screws in the holes to reseal it. my thread is nylon size a.

Not sure what causes the problem.  I typically use clear hard as nails finger nail polish.  You may be able to put it in the type of container you noted.

Thanks,

I used to use a lot of lacquer when I was building cabinets. Have been using some of the hard as nails because of the " milky" problem. The Waspi seems like it penetrating better but the end color is bad.

I'm using a throw away brush and this what it drys like on the bristles. The squeeze type bottle with the needle would be convenient.

I"ll just chalk it up to experience. The goal was to bind the hair and try to get a buildup on the thread when finished. I ordered some " Hard as Hull" and we"ll see how that goes.

Thanks,
