Weldon 4 (water thin) is your best bet, Weldon 16 (gel) is useable also. They are made for acrylic.

Since you're in the EU (well, for now ;)) you might have better luck finding acrylic solvent cements by Evonik, such as Acrifix. The water-thin solvement cements are preferred in most cases, but require good edges and technique to get a perfect seam.
