Bondic liquid plastic welds plastic, wood, and fabric together

We are all familiar with superglue and its ability to glue two surfaces together. The problem with superglue is that it has some very harsh fumes and it can be difficult to use. Anyone who has ever had a repair half done when the glue hardened knows normal superglue can be hard to use.

A new product called Bondic has debuted and this isn’t a glue. The makers of Bondic say that people should think of it more as welding than gluing. Bondic is a liquid plastic that remains a liquid and hardens into a plastic that can be sanded and painted after exposure to UV light.

Bondic can be built up layer by layer to achieve the strength needed for repairs. It will work on multiple materials include wood, plastic, and fabric. As far as glue goes, Bondic is rather expensive at $22 per tube.

The tube contains the glue and a UV light source on one end for hardening the plastic. This interesting product should make repairs of all sorts of items easier. Check out the video to see Bondic in action.
