Is butanone an adequate acylic cement?

I went to the local hobby store to buy acrylic cement as I try to support local stores. The sold me methyl ethyl ketone (butanone) which is water thin and lists acrylic bonding as an application. I looked at the cements that your instructions recommend and they are difficult to purchase in Los Angeles due to AQMD regulations. Any issues with butanone as a cement?

Hello Michael,

There is a lot of good information on our forum about alternatives.

It would make sense that MEK would work as an acrylic cement as well. It can be nasty stuff to work with though. Make sure you follow all the safety precautions and work in a well ventilated area.

Let us know how it goes!
