Help gluing Trumpeter's T-90 track links

I’m having problems gluing the original track links using the Tamiya Extra-Thin cement.
When trying to place one complete assembled track side (one link still left to be glued) to the road wheels, quite often a link, or more, breaks apart.
It seems that the Tamiya cement doesn’t bond/melts the brown track links.
Why the material used for the track links is different from the kit sprues I don’t know.
Any help will be much appreciated, as I can’t complete the kit which is almost finished.
