Smile Sig-ment

We have a 4oz. tube of Sigment glue which advertise's as being fuelproof. I plan on using this cement to glue-up the "Buzzard Bombshell" I'm working on.
Does anyone know if either nitrate or butyrite dopes will attack this glue? I note on the labelling it contains Acetone, Toluol, and Methyl-Ethyl-Ketone; all the stuff cartoons are afraid of, but, that which dope seems to like.

Anyone used this stuff with a dope covering?

Re: Sig-ment

As far as attacking the Sigment, the dope may soften the surface a bit if you lay on a lot of thinned out dope, but it will not destroy the glue joints, if that's what you are concerned about. The solvent (thinners) in the dope will evaporate as the dope cures, in a very short time, giving that delightful aroma that us builders love.
P.S. the sigment is also great for fixing the rips and tears in silkspan, lay a bead along the edges of the damage, and I use a pin to help align the edges. It cures nice and tight, and is nearly invisible.
