BondicEVO Liquid Plastic Welder 2021 Updated Review.
Bondic is the first commercially available form of this dental adhesive. It’s in the incredibly strong adhesive that operates differently than any other glue on the market. In this article, we have stated all you need to know about the BondicEVO liquid plastic welder.
This viscous fluid starts out feeling a little like some kind of oil, but as soon as it’s exposed to UV light it hardens into one of the toughest bonding agents available.
After a Kickstarter campaign that raised over six times its initial goal, we knew that we had to put our negative dental experiences behind us.
To find out how this bonding agent can be used outside of our mouths, we decided to test it out for ourselves.
About BondicEVO Liquid Plastic Welder
Bondic is a convenient, yet powerful tool that uses a unique liquid formula which, when exposed to a special UV light, is transformed into hard plastic in just 4 seconds. Bondic® was unveiled at the 2014 National Hardware Show in the USA.
Here, we were very proud to take home the Retailers Choice Award for Most Innovative New Product and featured in the July Edition of the Hardware Retailing Magazine.
Since then Bondic has also been highlighted by publications like Gizmodo, Gear Diary, Ask Men, Werd, Tools In Action, BAUSVAULT, OH GIZMO, ENTweak, Extreme How-To Blog, Trend Hunter, Gizmag, Slash Gear & Gear Hungry and featured on The Shopping Channel with very positive reviews.
- INCREDIBLE ADHESIVE – When fully cured, Bondic is 100% waterproof, heat-resistant, and non-toxic. Dries clear and can be sanded or painted after it hardens to customize any project
- QUICK REPAIRS AND EASY TO OPERATE: The incorporated LED UV light has an easy press button and when the liquid is exposed to the UV light it cures in seconds to form a permanent bond
- BETTER THAN SUPERGLUE – Bondic is not glued and the no solvent liquid formula only hardens when UV light is applied which prevents the hassle of removing hardened glue and means there is no chance of it drying up in the container
- BOND, BUILD, FIX AND FILL ALMOST ANYTHING – Use Bondic on plastic, wood, metal, PVC, steel, rubber, wiring, ceramic, figurines, vinyl, Kevlar, polypropylene, leather and so much more to fix the ends of the phone chargers, children’s broken toys, jewelry, glasses, or your favorite pair of heels
- COMPLETE STARTER KIT – Includes everything needed to start fixing: handheld applicator, LED UV light, and one 4 gram tubes of liquid adhesive all held in a handy metal case
The tube that includes the Bondic is very thick and durable – much tougher than we’re used to seeing from adhesives. The tip of the tube is a tiny steel cylinder. This needle-like tip allows you to apply the material very precisely. When it comes out, it has the consistency of honey.
It’s still malleable and tends to form in rounded-off shapes, similar to a droplet. However, you can apply it in a manner that is much more articulate than you would with glue, which tends to be much waterier.
It can be used on almost any material. Plastic, metal, glass, and wood are all examples. But there is a little prep-work required.
Because this isn’t actually a glue, it doesn’t really ‘stick’ to surfaces. You need to have an uneven surface for it to grab on to.
This doesn’t mean that it has to be jagged, but you will need to sand or grind smooth surfaces. The edge of a glass table could work, but the smooth surface on top would not unless properly prepared.
Once you have your surface ready, you simply apply as much or as little of the Bondic material as you need. You then use the gun to cure it.
Just point the tip at the material, pull the trigger, and illuminate it for five seconds. After that, it’s rock hard. Rarely do we even see plastics as rigid as Bondic is.
Bondic may seem like a tool with virtually unlimited possibilities, but there are some limitations you need to keep in mind. First, remember that you’ll have to use it on a rough surface.
Bonding something to a window would require sanding, and that would reduce the clarity. Sticking two smooth materials together isn’t entirely possible. Finally, you can’t use it in direct sunlight. UV light forces it to set, so if you’re using it outdoors you’re racing against the clock.
BondicEVO is one of the most unique products we’ve come across in quite some time. “Liquid Welder” really is the best description for it. We find it incredibly useful for both repairs, as well as our construction projects.
Whether you’re using it as filler material to mold one of your unique designs, or you’re simply trying to find an easy way to bond two types of material, we’d chose Bondic over glue any day. You get to apply it with precision and determine the exact moment it hardens.
