Default Re: UV glue for fly tying

The problem with Solarez is the long recommended cure time. They suggest an initial cure of 30 seconds to set the resin and 3 minutes for a complete cure. 3 minutes is way too long and having to put the flies in the sun is an inconvenience.

30 seconds should be long enough to cure a tying resin completely tack free with the flashlight alone.

Thick Formula Solarez

All Solarez tying resins contain the following instructions:

"Apply all UV curable products in full shade or indoors, flash withSolarez UV Flashlight for 30 secs, continue working on fly. To completely cure resin, expose to sunlight or use flashlight for about 3 minutes."
