About Bondic®

Superglue might be something you are used to and feel fairly comfortable using, but glue, in general, isn’t exactly ideal.

One of the biggest problems with glue — superglue or otherwise — is that it is a self-drying substance.

That is to say, you have a limited amount of time to apply it, shape it, and stick whatever you’re trying to glue together, before it dries out and creates a problem.

Bondic, on the other hand, is not glue. It is an alternative that does the job much better.

What is Bondic?

Bondic is a tool that uses a specific liquid formula that transforms into plastic in 4 seconds.

So what makes this product any different from the typical superglue products?

The liquid component will remain liquid until exposed to UV light. When it is exposed, however, it turns into hard plastic in only 4 seconds.

It’s a versatile bonding formula that you can use on a wide variety of materials and it’s much more effective than your typical glue.

How Does it Work?

Bondic is one of the simplest tools out there. All you need to do is apply it like any other glue onto the materials that you want to bond together. The special liquid is similar in texture to any superglue out there.

However, as long as you leave it like that, you can shape it, change it, wipe excess amounts, and add more liquid, until you’re completely satisfied. When you’re done, just click the button on the Bondic tool, wait for 4 seconds, and the liquid will turn into hard plastic.

This plastic is completely weatherproof and waterproof, as well as extremely durable. The special liquid is not available anywhere else, which is exactly why the Bondic brand is growing increasingly popular. Say goodbye to superglue and welcome to this amazing innovation.

Key Features

Once again, Bondic is not glue. It is a special adhesive with a unique formula. Here are some of its awesome features that make it different than its peers.

Easy Cleanup

In order to properly bond two items, first you’re going to need to clean them properly. You can use a damp cloth to wipe the surface dirt, but you’ll need a sharp, pointy tool to clean all the nooks and crannies.

The sharp, pointy tool is featured in the package, of course. What makes it special is that it will never harden, unless you expose it to UV light.

This means that all you need is a paper tissue and Bondic to clean the pieces that you want to bond. Just clean all the dirt, wipe it off with a paper towel and you are ready to use Bondic.

The UV Light

Every Bondic Liquid Welder comes with a UV light, specifically designed to make the liquid substance harden and turn into plastic as fast as possible. Once you’re done shaping the liquid substance, just fire up the included UV light to quickly dry and harden the liquid component.

Versatility

Many glues can only work with a certain range of materials.  Bondic, on the other hand, is very versatile. You can use it to fix everything from chipped dishes, to figurines, toys, eyeglasses, jewelry, etc. In fact, given the fact that it is both waterproof and fire resistant, you can expose Bondic to a variety of conditions.

It is great for stopping leaks in pools and aquariums and the hardened plastic won’t melt, even if you apply it close to your mantelpiece. Bondic is versatile, even when it completely dries.

The formed hard plastic can be molded, painted, sanded, filled, milled, as well as polished. This makes it extremely adaptable. With some extra effort, you can bring old broken items to their previous shine and no one will even notice that they were ever broken.

Long Life

Your typical glues tend to dry quickly when exposed to air. Even when you close the tube or can, it will start drying out. This means that the tube sealant can easily get clogged and nearly impossible to properly open.

As a substance that hardens and dries out only when exposed to UV light, Bondic can remain in liquid state in the applicator tube for years.

Included Accessories

When you open the trial packaging, you’ll see a liquid plastic applicator, two 4-gram tubes of liquid plastic, a holder, and an LED UV light. This is more than enough to last you quite some time with moderate use.

Customer Reviews

Customer 1

One customer has managed to fix their Swarovski Christmas tree topper with Bondic. Apparently, one of the crystals broke off from the frame and they thought it couldn’t be fixed.

The tree topper was quite difficult to handle, as it was of irregular shape and couldn’t be laid flat on a surface.

However, thanks to the fact that Bondic doesn’t stiffen in contact with air, the customer was able to hold down the tree topper, apply a single drop of Bondic onto the metal and use the LED light.

She did this with an actual crystal and it took seconds for the liquid plastic to harden, fixing the pricey Swarovski Christmas tree topper.

Customer 2

Another customer had a great experience fixing their sunglasses, and gluing back a piece of plastic that fell off their printer tray. The best part, they claimed, was that the hardened plastic was almost completely indistinguishable, and there was no additional tampering involved. This was possible thanks to the fact that Bondic liquid hardens quickly, unlike conventional glue.

The user also sealed a seam on a tension rod in order to increase its weight capacity. The best part here is that they claim that they wouldn’t have even thought of it if it weren’t for Bondic. This product can spark up your creativity and have you fixing stuff in no-time.

Customer 3

The third review is all about toys, Hot Wheels to be specific. The customer had parts of a casting missing on a toy car and there was no real way to repair this, especially not with superglue. This customer went really creative here. First, they wrapped the windows in plastic, and put the model car together. Then, they used Bondic to draw the missing bits, hardening them as they were drawn.

Customer 4

Finally, this customer tells a great story on how simple and quick of a solution Bondic actually is. They used the product to fix the cracks in their motorcycle’s fairings.

First, they cut a V-groove in every crack and drilled the crack tips. Then, they used Bondic as the filler.

The customer claims that the best thing about using this product is the form factor — getting the ideal filler amount is very easy, as the Bondic pen opening is essentially as narrow as a tip of a pen point.

This speaks a lot about how resilient Bondic is when it hardens. If it can be used on motorcycle fairings, it can be used pretty much anywhere.

Our Review

Do not mistake Bondic for glue. Although it can replace many types of glue in most instances, as well as serve as an adhesive substance, Bondic is more of a molding liquid tool because it can do so much more than glue two items together.

You can fill holes in various items and hold many different materials together. Thanks to its brilliant drying method, it is extremely versatile. With enough of this substance, you could actually create new items.

The fact that it dries only when exposed to LED light gives you all the time in the world to prepare everything for drying.

Another great thing here is the fact that it won’t clog the applicator tube; unlike superglue, it can’t get stuck inside its tube. After applying Bondic, grab a paper tissue or a piece of cloth to wipe any excess liquid from the surface of the tube.

Pros

  • Superb drying control
  • Dries in four seconds
  • Consistent when hard
  • Can be sanded
  • Works with many materials

Cons

  • Hardens only under LED light

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens if Bondic is exposed to sunlight?

Direct sunlight has a similar effect on Bondic like the UV pen. This means that the liquid will quickly turn into hard plastic if exposed to direct sunlight.

It is also recommended not to expose the Bondic pen to direct sunlight, as the effect will be similar to what happens with superglue when exposed to fresh air.

Use Bondic indoors or during the night, but be careful to avoid using any light bulbs that emit UV rays when working with it.

Is the Bondic liquid safe?

It is definitely not recommended to ingest the liquid and Bondic pens should be kept out of the reach of children. That being said, Bondic is non-toxic, which means that you can repair drinking vessels and tableware with it.

Don’t worry, you can use it on chipped and broken plates, cups, etc. and it is much more efficient than superglue.

Is Bondic conductive?

No, the plastic that forms when you expose Bondic to LED lights is an insulator.

This means that you can use Bondic to fix various cables and plugs. Be careful, however, and make sure that there isn’t any electricity going through the object that you are fixing.

How to remove a bonded piece

As a very potent sealant, the plastic made by using Bondic is very strong. It is waterproof, weatherproof, and fire resistant.

As such, it can be extremely difficult to remove, so you should triple-check before you use the UV light on whatever it is that you’re fixing.

Can I use Bondic on lamps?

As mentioned, Bondic is fireproof and, as such, isn’t affected by heat (unless we’re talking about extreme temperatures).

It won’t burn, it won’t melt in your oven and, it can certainly take the heat of your lamp. Whether you’re using a fabric lamp or a glass ceiling lamp, it’ll do the trick.

Can I buy refills?

Yes, Bondic offers single four-gram 4G tubes and five-packs on their official website.

Additionally, they offer a Re-Gifter Pack with three Bondic pens. If you’re using the product for minor fixes, the two tubes in the standard package are going to last you quite some time.

Where to Buy

The best place to buy the full Bondic kit is on their official website here. They have multiple options to get started including a Trial Pack, Re-Gifter pack, and a 4G refill. All purchases above $49 are entitled to free US and Canada shipping.
