Wapsi Fly Head Cement

Back to List


This cement is made with an environmentally friendly water base lacquer that is non-flammable, odourless, quick drying, and is non-yellowing (dries clear). It is excellent as an all-around fly tying cement. The thin viscosity of the cement allows it to penetrate the thread well and creates a very good bond. If you desire to slightly thin the cement even further it can be thinned as much as 10% by adding a tiny amount of water. 

Water based cements are at their best when used with synthetic materials such as foam, flash materials, and rubber legs which can actually disintegrate when they come into contact with the some solvents. If you happen to accidentally spill some on your desktop clean up is fast and easy - simply wipe off the spilled cement with a wet sponge or rag before it dries. 



Gloss Coat is a fast drying, acrylic resin based head cement that produces a durable, high gloss finish with just one application. Having a medium thickness it is excellent for building up heads on flies and as a cosmetic overcoat for painted popper bodies, jig heads, etc. 

As the name implies what sets Gloss Coat apart from all other cements is the incredibly shiny finish it produces. Other cements require multiple applications to approach the finish you get with just one application of Gloss Coat.
