I have been contemplating this for a while. Wondering what kinds of things fellow Wooters have found for it to be a good application on - what kinds of things have you done with it?
Also, does anyone know if this runs until it cures or is it thick enough to stay put?
I haven’t found anything that super glue would not do better. Every time I use it the new plastic bond cracks or just falls off. Just buy some gorilla glue…
Yep, my experience is similar. It hardens quickly, but becomes very brittle, and I’ve had to re-repair everything with better super glue eventually.
Thanks you just saved me some woot
Same, thank you! I know I can always count on my fellow Wooters to give me the honest low down.
I’ve had decent results with this stuff. It is by no means magic, but does seem to cure 90% with the light in seconds. Came in clutch when a late started project required a repair of submerged plastic. This instant cure worked great, where glue would have required a hardener accelerant.
My best repair for strength was with two layers applied/UV’d before bed and another in the morning. Super strong, just remember you need to give it something to bond to on the first - rough it up with sandpaper.
I think the mistake is thinking this is glue. It is not glue, and functions poorly as glue… as noted in the comments. What it is good for is building, re-building, and filling in. Think… if you wanted to glue, or attach something, you wouldn’t run to your garage for Bondo. That’s for filling, and forming.
Yeah… it’s like that!
- I lost the plastic nose pad from a pair of metal eyeglass frames. With patience, and several layers of Bondic, I was able to form a new pad… that never fell off.
- It’s great for fixing chips on mugs and glasses. I fixed a small chip on crystal stemware. Can’t even find it.
- Broke arm of plastic eyeglasses. Instead of trying to glue it together. Roughed both ends and built a “sleeve” of Bondic around them.
- Great for reinforcing charger cables.
It is somewhat thick. Gel-like. It will run if you wait, or apply gobs. You should also not use it in gobs. It does not cure well. Thin layers cure almost instantly. Patience… and many thin coats. The biggest issue with Bondic is remembering you have it when the right application occurs.
