Q: What is the temperature range?
Bondic® has a temperature range of -40 °C to 150 °C.
Q: Can Bondic® be used for dishware?
You may use Bondic® for dishware repairs, such as cups or plates. We have many customers who have done this! However please note that Bondic® is currently not an FDA Food Grade approved plastic.
Q: What about outdoors?
Bondic® is the perfect tool to have when you're outdoors. It can fix tents when camping, sails when sailing, fishing rods, and so on! Please remember that Bondic® cures in UV light (like from the sun) so please ensure that you are using it in the shade or really quickly in the sun.
Q: It's still sticky, what do I do?
The first thing to do is test if the Bondic® material or LED light is dying. Use the Bondic and leave it in the sunlight. Check on it within a few minutes. If it is hardened, then it was your light that is dying out. If it is sticky, then please contact us for a replacement refill.
Q: My light won't turn on.
The switch on the light needs to be pushed all the way. Feel free to use a screwdriver to push it if you need to. If it still doesn't turn on, simply squeeze the UV light at the center (on the Bondic® symbol). If still nothing, please contact us for a replacement!
Q: Can I use it on fabrics?
Bondic® works great with fabrics! The fabric will easily absorb Bondic® and should create a strong bond. However, please note that removing any hard, cured Bondic® from fabric is very difficult. We recommend testing a fabric application before applying it to your project.
Q: Is it flexible?
Bondic® has minimal flexibility. Bondic® creates additional liquid plastic which is cured by exposure to our LED light. Once cured, Bondic® performs as a regular, household plastic.
Q: Can I use it on gasoline?
Bondic® is currently not an approved plastic for use with gasoline. We do not recommend using Bondic® for applications involving gas or fuel.
Q: Can I add food coloring or dye?
Bondic® cures to a solid, hard plastic. The plastic is translucent. We do not advise adding anything to the Bondic® material before curing. Any addition to the fluid could alter the curing process. If you wish to change the color of your cured Bondic® repair, you may paint over it with any paints.
Q: Can I use it to insulate?
Bondic® is a perfect insulating material on low voltage circuits only (under 24 V and under 1 Amp). Please note that Bondic® is not a replacement for solder! Working on high voltage current must be executed by experts only.
Q: How long does the LED Battery last?
A: Our LED lights provide up to 8 hours of continuous light.
Q: How do I replace the LED battery?
Our lights are not designed to have the batteries replaced. If you wish to replace the batteries, please do so at your own discretion. Our LED lights contain CR 2016 cell batteries.
The LED bulb has two wires coming out of it and the batteries need to go in between them. The short one goes in next to the Bondic® icon and the long one goes down the back. The batteries go in face down. The orange switch goes tail down and the wire sits in the slot.
Q: Is the UV light harmful?
The UV rays from the LED are no more harmful to your eyes than being outside on a sunny day. We do not suggest staring directly at the light for long periods of time. If you are concerned, you may wear any normal sunglasses for extra protection.
Q: Can I use it for plumbing / high pressure?
Yes you can! Bondic® holds up against high pressure. As long as the water is within the temperature range it can hold up as a good temporary fix while you're waiting for a plumber. You can look at our Youtube channel for testimonials on this.
Q: Can you use it on stone?
You can use it on any material as long as it can bond to it; ensure the surface is rough and follow the instructions.
Q: Can you make threading?
Yes, since it cures as hard plastic all you need to do is create the threading and cure it. This is a specific application and will require some focus; you will be essentially 3D-printing threading over the screw.
Q: Where do I find replacement parts?
You can go directly to notaglue.com to get replacement refills, Bondics®, and lights.
Q: How strong is it?
As long as you use it correctly, it can be very strong!
