Testimonials

“I really appreciate the extra mile you guys are going to make sure your customers are satisfied. I have a degree in business and I've studied all that stuff about how companies are doing their best to keep their customer satisfied through marketing and incentives, but I can't think of another company (in any field) that makes me as satisfied as you guys do. I'm sure there are some places that sell materials here in Japan, but even with extra cost of shipping and customs fee, I prefer to buy from LMI, because I can trust LMI's service and quality of materials. No marketing and incentives can match the solid good service and I'm a very happy LMI customer.”

Binding Adhesives

Contact adhesive (FCA) with brush (FTB).

Binding cement, FGW

Our FCA, an industry standard used my many large American factories, is finally available to the small shop user. In the factory environment, it reduced the time the binding had to be bound up to 24 hours! Steve Helgeson of Moonstone Guitars says it has fast tack, sets up quickly and produces fewer fumes than other products he's used. Frank Ford was also very enthusiastic about it. This product was developed using it in combination with 14 different woods and 28 different plastics and it worked well with all. This means you can use it on oilier woods like Cocobolo with good adhesion.

Here's what Rick Rubin had to say about our FCA: "I just used your FCA binding adhesive to reglue the original binding to a new back I made for a 1937 Gibson. It's great stuff, not noxious, like the stuff in the tube I've used for years, and is exceptionally easy to apply. I'm not going back to the old stuff. Once again you've made available a superior product."


Our FGW is a cement for bonding plastic to wood. This works well for edge binding but may also be used for bonding pickguards, too. Our customers have told us that no other cement works as well on vinyls, ABS plastics, and most plastic bindings. Great for Bolteron™ where Duco won't work. Stronger than Duco and other cements, heat buildup from scraping or sanding does not cause the binding to delaminate. It works with cellulose nitrate (ivoroid, "tortoise"), but it does not dissolve the material like other acetone- based cements.

NOTE: As with any product, practice on a test piece before using on your guitar. These products etch slightly into the plastic and wood, so they are not appropriate for very thin plastic applications.
