Truth be told, I am not a stranger to fab shops, nor to glues either.
Of course, I KNEW of the resin that cures under Ultra-Violet light (that's what's going on here), and I kept an eye out for it to show up on store shelves, all these many years. I figured that it at LEAST had hit the Industrial adhesive market, but various things kept my mind focused elsewhere. So this is a new discovery for me, believe it or not.
This stuff is not a mumbo-jumbo glue scam. It is a liquid resin plastic that solidifies when hit with UV light - the same type of light that makes things glow in the dark in the novelty stores. This process has been used for decades by the auto industry as a first-effort version of a 3D Printer. It has been used with two UV lasers, set up in an X/Y configuration over a pool of this stuff to make prototypes appear to eerily "rise" out of the resin pool. Dentists have been using this plastic for years, which is why you sometimes saw them shining a blue-violet light into your mouth.
My point is, this is NO SCAM. It is a commonly-used, RELIABLE material that's been used in the industry for well over a decade. OF COURSE it will work for you - WITHOUT QUESTION - if you use it properly.
But it is no "Miracle Glue". In fact, it is NOT A GLUE AT ALL, which is why Bondic's working motto is "Don't use it like a glue, because it isn't one." It is a plastic resin that solidifies in SECONDS, if hit by a special type of light. The plastic has the ability to stick to a LOT of surface types, so it can do the job of a glue in many applications. I am sure that Bondic has a website to help clarify how this stuff can be properly used, and what surfaces you ca use it with.
But the big difference in this and glues like Krazy Glue is:
It lasts on the shelf without going bad for a REAL LONG time.
It doesn't foul up the applicator, making you throw it away often.
It doesn't get sticky on your hands or ANYTHING, before you apply the light. So just make sure you use a kleenex to wipe or clean the resin off of things before you use the light.
One common mistake that happens using this resin - be sure that wherever you use it, there is still a way to let the UV light get to it, when you cure it. For example, putting a glob of resin on a rubber foot pad, and then sticking it on a box or something, and shining the light at the general area WON'T WORK!! Obviously, the light can't reach in between the pad and the box, to cure the resin that's put inbetween. However, if the footpad was CLEAR or TRANSLUSCENT, then it would work fine, as the light you shined at the pad would illuminate the pad, and consequently cure the plastic you applied. So a little thought needs to go into this. But not much.
I also saw a question on this website asking if the stuff would glue a saw blade together. The stuff is just a tough plastic - so don't try to use it where any plastic would give out. The sawblade application takes nothing less than metal welding, if not total replacement. Also, saw blades get HOT, and plastic gets SOFT with heat. Use your brain, and check out the Bondic website if you aren't sure.
Since the resin hardens under UV light, just be sure to keep the bottle away from Fluorescent lights or sunlight. EVERY commercial light source puts out at least a LITTLE UV light, so the secret is to keep the stuff in total darkness when not using it.
The hardening process only takes seconds. Shine the little "bluish" LED light at the stuff for about 10-20 seconds, and you're done. The directions say to use a full 30 seconds to cure, but in truth, it sometimes takes as little as 10 seconds.
No, the blue light Bondic provides DOES NOT harm your eyes or skin. Still, it's not smart to point ANY light source directly into your eyes, so DON'T DO IT. And no, you don't have to wear dark glasses, either. And this isn't emphasized by Bondic, but the resin is not triggered by TEMPERATURE. So putting it in a refrigerator does nothing to help keep the stuff good - or bad. Just put it in a dark cabinet at normal room temperature.
Because the resin won't foul the tip of the applicator they give you, the applicator point can be really fine (which it is), allowing you to do some very precision detailed fixes.
About the only thing negative I can find with this product, is that they are a bit chintzy with the quantity they give you, giving you only about 4 grams of resin in a tube. But for a lot of people, that will be enough for their needs.
When you look to get more of this product in the future, just get REFILL TUBES of resin only, which are much cheaper, depending on the store you buy it from. Then you can keep using the same little cure light they gave you with the original order. It's just a little LED light that produces light of a special wavelength (so no other blue LEDs will work), but the light assembly is easily removed from the applicator, and uses a small button battery cell to function, which can be bought and replaced, should you eventually need to do so.
In conclusion, this stuff is NO GIMMICK, and it is TERRIFIC!!!
It will do everything you need it to do, provided that you use it properly.
Think of this as liquid plastic that will harden for you after you've applied it. It is not an adhesive. Yes, it will stick to some surfaces, but if that's what you're relying on, you will probably be disappointed. Rough, clean surfaces that offer some "tooth" work much better than smooth surfaces of any kind.
Instead, if you can form this around what you're trying to attach and then harden it, it will lock around the joint and will be strong (given that it's basically plastic material). It really needs something it can lock into, on to, or around.
Also, build it up on layers - the UV has to get to the liquid to harden it. Too much thickness all at once and the lower liquid doesn't get UV and won't harden. They say a couple of mm - so 1/16" or so for each layer. you can't put a big glob down and harden it, Think layers. It does adhere to itself very well.
I've used it to fix a number of children's toys that superglue wouldn't hold.
It also was great for little building projects with my son - we used toothpicks and if you can hold them together for 4 seconds they stay, so he built a mini Eiffel tower (with my help).
We also attached bracelet rings to Legos so the children could make Lego bracelets and necklaces and it worked great for that, too.
Pros: Fast and very strong. Clear.
Cons: If you use a lot has a strong smell.
Previously, I've also repaired a pair of 10 year old Sony headphones and a torn front bumper lip on my car. Both of those repairs have been holding up for over a year now. I once attempted to repair the handle to the clean water container on my Hoover steam cleaner, but no matter how I prepped the surfaces, the Bondic just wouldn't stick. Same for some old toys I was trying to fix- the Bondic just wouldn't stick to the things I was trying to attach. So, Bondic is wonderful when it works and repairs stuff that nothing else I have would be able to, but when it doesn't work, it really doesn't work at all.
