Barge all purpose thinner is made especially for all purpose type cements (e.g. Barge or Master all purpose cement). Not intended for celluloid cement. Thick, stubborn cement can be thinned to desired consistency. Additionally, thinner can be used to clean your brush or to help remove parts bonded with all purpose cement. Contains toluene, so sales are unavailable to California residents who do not operate a licensed business.
Note: This is a consumer commodity (ORM-D) that may only be shipped via UPS, please make sure to select UPS as your shipping option.
This was my first purchase with Montana Leather Company and I chose them because they had a great price…afterwards, I found out that they’re a staple among the leatherworking community which is a major plus.
On to the product, it’s great. It works, simply add to the Barge cement to thin it, dissolve it or bring a half empty can that’s drying back to life (like I did). I have not used it to clean up or undo bonds yet, but based on what I experienced by spilling a bit on top of the cement can, it will do just that.
It does contain some pretty harsh solvents, so keep it off your skin and use it in a seriously well ventilated area…contains tulene which is pretty dangerous.

My first order with Montana Leather supply and it was a great transaction.
The Barge cement that I have is about 3 years old and I rarely use it because of the chemical properties and frankly that stuff will mess up your brain. It took a pair of lockjaw pliers to open it and when I did the glue was unusable so I had to use a different glue for my project which isn’t nearly as strong. I ordered the Barge cement thinner and took it out to the shed and wore a mask like this:
because the thinner is stinky as well with that Tulene solvent in it is something you don’t want to breath if you can avoid it. and man that stuff brought back that old hard glue to the thickness now of real heavy cream making it usable again.
Thanks for the quick shipping and a low low price I will be ordering again from Montana Leather Supply again.

Works good to thin down Barge cement. Takes it’s down to a workable consistency and reduces glue lines on finished products. I use roughly 2 parts cement to one part thinner.
