Glue will do in a pinch, but it isn't always the most effective stuff for home repairs. A few years ago, we saw a tool called Bondic, which fixes things by applying a layer of liquid plastic that will only set hard when it's exposed to an included UV light. Now the company is back with BondicEvo, a new model that reportedly improves the "liquid plastic welder."

Hmm its interesting, I had a quick look at some reviews for the old one which dont seem favorable. Maybe this one is better/stronger?

hello,

 

 

I used this product to repair the axis of a key of a Crown CSC 850. This is very convenient because the glue does not have time to move. But I think it's not more solid than a bi-component epoxy adhesive. It is also quite expensive.

Looks pretty fancy Chris! That would be useful when you want it to go only where you put it. I'll probably never run out of acrylic solvent, but it's so runny it's only useful for when you need it to capillary into cracks.

You know they sell different versions right? Try picking one with lower viscosity.

I've been using Devcon 2-part plastic weld.  It's crap because each of the 2 parts does not squeeze out equally, so you waste a lot.  Also the fumes are somewhat toxic, lol.

Cool, I didn't know that. Actually now that I think about it, I was able to melt some plastic into my solvent to lower its viscosity for one situation.

I never saw the original, this seemed reasonable.

What brand solvent do you use?

Geeze dude  :blink: You repairing radios or making them?


I'm looking on eBay and when I search "Acrylic Cement" it comes back with "Plexiglass cement"

 

Is this what I want?

Don't give me any crazy ideas Chris! :lol:

All of those with the possible exception of the red tube are solvents, not actually a cement or glue or any sort. They'll straight up melt the plastic and evaporate away. These are common when building plexiglass stuff - clamp the pieces together and drop a few drops of solvent into the mating surfaces with the needle bottle and it wicks in and welds the pieces together.

OK, thanks, I may have to give this a shot

Anyone used this one recently, looks like it maybe useful for reparing screw posts?

Can Bondic® harden in places with no light?
No, Bondic® can only harden when exposed to light of a specific wavelength. If bonding two parts together where the LED light cannot reach, one of the two bonded parts has to be translucent in order for the light to reach through to the Bondic® formula.
