    Anyone ever use this stuff? http://notaglue.com/

    It uses UV light to cure.

    "Bondic™ is The World’s First Liquid Plastic Welder and is the only product that Works where Glue FAILS! It’s liquid plastic that only hardens when you need it to. YES it stays liquid and won’t dry out like those crazy glues on the market today. With Bondic™ you can bond, build, fix and fill almost anything, it’s a 3D tool that fits in your pocket. Use it on plastic, wood, metal and even fabric! It is a very simple 4-step process (clean, fill, cure and shape) saving countless precious items from ending up in the trash before their time."

    Is that the same stuff dentists use to fill cavities. Plastic with UV cure?

    Yeap! it's the stuff dentists use and cures well with just about any UV emitter source even UV LED's.
    I've tried it on a few household item repairs but it's WAY to expensive for just about anything I can think of with Model rockets. Further it would likely not hold up any better then Acrylic or Modified Acrylics to the stresses we place on our glues and adhesives.

    If your working with Plastics "Solvent Welding" is a much better procedure and/or epoxy applications.
    for wood/paper/cardboard bonding stick with the tried and true glues and adhesives that have been in use since the beginning of the hobby.

    Wow, never heard of this stuff. Decided to search instead creating a new post...

    I have never taken the click bait before, but the 4min youtube is pretty awesome.


    Watch "Bondic - Liquid Plastic Welder - Fix, Repair, Mold and Build! It's Not a Glue!" on YouTube

    Meh. There have been many kinds of UV curing resins for quite some time. I have a lot of the stuff in my mouth... dentists use quite a bit of it.

    It can be pretty cheap too. You can get laminating resin (for fiberglass) at $50/gal for Polyester and $60/gal for epoxy. (Solarez is one vendor)

    They even have 3D printer resin that uses the stuff.

    I guarantee the video ‘cheated’ and showed an easy to bond plastic - there’s no way they could have done that with polypropylene (which is what a lot of plastic nose cones are made of).

    I have used it and it works. No real advantage other than it won't stick you wife's foot to the linoleum without the light.

    Guys, you've got it backwards.
    So the only advantage is that it won't. This doesn't mean he was disappointed, it means he was relieved. Because he's glued her foot to the floor in the past with some other adhesive. Probably CA.

    Obviously it would have been "foam safe" CA that doesn't kick off in an exothermic fashion. Full thickness burn on her foot would lead to instant divorce. :confused:
    I used foam safe CA on my fingernail that had a transverse fracture after getting smashed in a garage door break. Power went out and I had to close the door
    manually. Nobody puts handhold on garage doors anymore.Left index finger went above the break, the ring below the break and the middle finger got smashed on the way down. I thought the xray would show
    powdered bone under the nail but it looked normal. The nail edges caught on everything and I didn't want to rip the distal nail piece off as it was still anchored in the bed. I threw a bead across the break
    with foam safe CA every three days to smooth out the rough edges and eventually the proximal end of the nail grew out and the distal piece fell off painlessly.

    I once had a nail split from the front edge back about a quarter inch; I CAed it and just waited for the split to grow out.

    I don’t recommend regular CA for this purpose because as many know, it can kick off in an unpredictable pattern in a very exothermic reaction. It’s best to use
    The foam safe stuff the indoor foamie fliers use. It won’t burn you. I had some surgical ports on my belly where the skin was closed with CA. Obviously deep sutures were placed for muscle approximation, maybe a few to line up the fat layer but the skin was glued shut and worked fine. Kurt
