Mr. Mark Softer is a glue agent for decals. Used to firmly attach decals to painted surfaces. It is especially effective when used on decals that have become old and have lost their adhesion, or on decals that do not have strong adhesion.

It also contains ingredients that soften the decal. Apply a small amount to the location where you want to apply the decal, place it, and place the decal on top. The adhesive glues the decal to the painted surface, making it difficult to peel off even after drying.

The softening solvent will quickly soften the decal, so if you apply too much, the decal itself may melt or erode the painted surface. Applying it over the pasted decal will have some effect, but basically apply it under the decal.

This product is water soluble. Adding water as appropriate will dilute the effect of the solvent and prevent rapid softening. Depending on the painted surface to be used and the type of decal, it may be best to dilute it with water before use.

After pasting the decal, lightly press down on the decal with a lightly dampened Mr. cotton swab, Mr. Cleanstick 2, or a dust-free cloth to make sure the decal follows the surface of the part.

At that time, wipe off the excess Mr. Mark Setter to prevent it from becoming too soft. Using a cotton swab moistened with water will neutralize the marksetter and prevent it from becoming too soft with solvent.

If the decal is hard and does not soften easily, apply a small amount of MS231 Mr. Mark Softer on the decal and let it blend in. Be careful not to apply too much.

If there are air bubbles between the decal and the part (silvering), carefully punch a hole in the decal using a needle or design knife after the decal has dried. Then, by applying Mr. Mark Softer again, the decal will soften again, the air bubbles will disappear, and the decal will adhere firmly to the surface of the part.

One way to prevent silvering is to finish the base to which the decal will be applied with a glossy surface.

We have changed the main agent used in the old product to an environmentally friendly one and redesigned it.

Following changes are as follows.

  • The glue agent has been changed from an emulsion resin based glue agent to an acrylic resin based glue agent. The adhesion performance has been improved compared to the previous one.
  • Applying decals → Even if you do masking after coating with glossy clear, the decals will no longer be easily carried away by the masking tape.
  • The softening performance has become stronger than the previous one.
  • It has more ability to dissolve water-based hobby colors than previous products. This is especially noticeable if the drying time is short, so please dry thoroughly and avoid applying too much. When using it, it is best to dilute Mark Softer with water to lower its dissolving power before use.

It depends on the drying time of the paint film, the volume used, the method of wiping, etc., but a rough guideline is to dilute it by about 30%.
