Anyone try Bondic for foam or plastic repairs?

Bondic - Liquid Plastic Welder - How Strong can it hold?? (0 min 49 sec)


Uses same technology as in the dental industry for curing plastic tooth filling material. Looks pretty good to me, for some difficult applications. Although expensive. But for those situations where you cannot buy a replacement part, or need to buildup a surface that may have chipped out, or maybe fill a stripped screw hole. No heat need be applied to join foam surfaces together. Hmmm....

This is UV-cure resin and buying it this way works out to $2750.00 per kilo.

Use epoxy and save your money.

Piece of cake to get a strong bond to threaded steel. Seriously. I'd have rather seen them join two smooth surfaces. Or HDPE.

BONDIC - YOU HAVE TO SEE THIS - BEST GLUE EVER! (3 min 29 sec)


Maybe this video might help to better understand? A quad copter, but my imagination leads toward foamies too.

I have no affiliation what-so-ever. Just thought it might be a helpful product to somebody. And yes I agree the unit cost is high. But since you might use only a tenth of a gram at a time for many repairs, it is certainly affordable, as a repair tool. And unlike epoxy's, it generates no heat, and dries in 4 seconds.

I simply asked if anyone on this forum tried it. If those who have not tried it, don't see a need, good for you. However, you have not answered the original question now, have you?

No, as a matter of fact I didn't, but I think I raised a legitimate question. I didn't badmouths it. I merely said, and still say, that the ad footage didn't prove any significant strength in the product.

Although I'll grant you that it would take longer to apply and dry, I'll bet you could duplicate that feat with Elmer's. They didn't stick to anything slippery, they didnt demonstrate any more strength tnah any other decent plastic glue.

I just wrote a blog post on glue, humorous I hope, but serious... I have a big problem finding glue to stick some dissimilar plastics together with. Almost nothing will stick to HDPE and it's everywhere.

So if they had showed me they could do that there'd be an order of it on the way now.

So I didn't mean to be rude. I was just kind of disappointed.

Excuse me. I mis-typed. Meant helicopter. Does that make a difference, really?

I am happy that you don't need the stuff. And can repair your propellers and blades, foam wings, fuselages, motor mounts, cowls, etc. in the field with Elmers.

Equally happy you have no interest in the product. And based on the lack of responses, it appears nobody has tried it. Or has any interest in it. A you tube search brings up many different applications. Some successes and some failures, too.

I do plan on trying it tho'. But before I take it flying, I'll be trying it on my sailboats.

Oh...Was there an apology? Guess I missed it. Not that you owe any apology. Except for maybe a highjack. No biggie tho. But you did bring up some good application questions that might add to the discussions.

You make a good point about dis-similar materials. But I kinda think this product will do that. Why do I think that? Because the dentist filled my tooth with it (or a reasonable facsimile) and it has stayed bonded for years. And ahs held up to years of compressive torture.

You know? For $23 you can find out if this will do what you want. Or you can not try it, and remain searching. And write your blog without complete and up to date research. But this stuff is clearly no a GLUE, as stated by the manufacturer.

I agree with Jeff. Spending 23x more money for no advantage just doesn't make sense. I thought CA was expensive, but this reorganizes the whole expense curve there. Unless there's something it does 23x better it's not on the menu.
