Our Bondic® journey started with Dr. Tom, a dentist in Germany. One day a patient asked if he could take some of the dental bonding material home and borrow a spare UV light to try something he was working on. When the patient came back and asked for a few gallons of the material Dr. Tom was stunned. “I mean that’s 10 dentists, 10 lifetimes worth of material; what on earth can he need so much of it for and if he needs it I wonder how many other people in the world can use something like this!” And that is the true origin of Bondic®.
Turns out this person used it under a microscope to attach wires to a microchip. So that journey turned into a 3 year endeavor to create Bondic®, the world's first liquid plastic welder that works on almost anything- although it's not very good on teeth now just to let you know!
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..
All the plastic around you, probably something you're holding right now or resting on or looking at is made with plastic, and this “plastic stuff” is basically a polymer chain in more scientific terms. Polymers are made of monomers which naturally want to attract to become an organized “polymer chain” - what you and I call, plastic! What Dr. Tom did was separate that process from happening with a liquid. When you apply our specially created UV light, the liquid gets out of the way and basically allows the individual monomer compounds to instantly attract with one another, organizing to make hard plastic-polymer in seconds. The cool thing is that YOU control when that happens!
Bondic® is NOT A GLUE
If you are thinking that Bondic® is just another glue product...STOP. Bondic® is not a glue, and does not work like a glue. Glue already exists. We do not want to replace it. We just want to do what glue can't do and work where glue fails! You have to think of Bondic® as something that creates new material; kind of like a freestyle 3D printer that fits in your pocket! It of course has a bonding agent in it but – and this is important - if the UV light can’t reach the liquid, it can’t cure it. At the same time you can’t do this in direct sunlight either because the sun carries the whole spectrum of light including the one needed to cure Bondic®.
We Do What Glues Can't Do
The next generation BondicEVO™ offers a faster curing time, a more convenient size & shape, and an easier application method.
- Built in LED light.
- More LED power than the original Bondic® LED.
- Quick release cartridge system for easy refill replacements.
- Ergonomic grip for convenient and steady applications.
The added features only enhance the original product. Though the BondicEVO™ Pen is smaller and sleeker, it still possesses the same amazing capabilities as our original Bondic® Pen. This ranges from anything to bonding the arms of broken glasses back together to sealing holes in copper pipes. You can literally use it for all DIY projects such as filling holes, making new threading, bonding materials together for craft projects and repairing cords or wires that have frayed.
- Bonds, builds, fixes & fills almost ANY material (plastic, metal, glass, etc.).
- Cures in just a few seconds.
- Bondic® can be cured while underwater.
- Can be painted after cured.
- Bondic® never dries out in the tube and will ONLY turn into plastic once exposed to the UV light.
- Once cured, Bondic® can withstand temperatures from -40°C to 150°C.
