Introduction
Grass Glue (Graskleber) from NOCH is a special adhesive formulated for static grass and foliage scatter. It is item 61130.

According to NOCH;
    The NOCH Grass Glue is not just an ordinary white glue! We have experimented for a long time on it’s composition in order to achieve the perfect glue for our grass fibres. An essential advantage is that the surface brushed with our grass glue does not dry so quickly, that means the glue sets more slowly than a usual white glue. The advantage is that you can make the grass covering on larger areas and the meadow will become more dense because the grass fibres being electrostatically charged in the NOCH Gras-Master® can enter into the glue more easily. If you use a common white glue from a DIY store the grass fibre will “bounce”, because it is not kept in the glue and it will fall over and the beautiful static effect of the upright standing grass is gone. We would therefore recommend that you only use the NOCH Grass Glue for the electrostatic grass covering of model landscape – then you will succeed. Promised!

Grass Glue
Grass Glue is available in an 8.818 oz (250 g) plastic can.

Its odor is mild and not offensive. Grass Glue is fairly thick so it is not easy to spill, yet it is easy to spread around.

I used the glue in a demonstration of the NOCH Gras-Master. (Please see Related Link, below.) It was easy to use. Months later, the glue is not setting up nor spoiling.

The glue did cure fairly fast.

Conclusion
I think that NOCH Grass Glue is a good product with no drawbacks. I recommend it.
