Help Clearfix has gone gloopy!
« on: March 27, 2021, 12:43:08 AM »
Hi all

Just noticed my bottle of Clearfix has gone a bit viscous, does anyone  know a way of thinning it down ?

I have tried white spirit, Tamiya thinners and water (not all of them at once!) But have had no success.

If anybody has a solution please let me know. There is nearly half a bottle left and I dont want to let it go to waste.

I don't know what Clearfix is, but if you've tried those solvents with no effect, try isopropyl or denatured alcohol (methylated spirits in the UK). I think the Tamiya thinner is alcohol based, so this suggestion may not work.

I don't know what Clearfix is...

Frank: Humbrol Clearfix is a Brit adhesive primarily intended for use on clear parts.

Mog : I've heard that acetone works for thinning Clearfix. Would Mrs. 'Mog have a stash of nail polish remover vulnerable to raiding?
