I broke a small statue at a very weak spot, that I paid $150 for new. I tried numerous brands of epoxy, glues and whatnot, none them held, always came apart from stress of the weight it was holding. I was leery about spending $10 only to have it not work as the others I used, so I thought ok I'll try this stuff but it will be the last time, I'll junk it if it doesn't hold. Amazing, after coating all around the break and using the UV light it held solid, no more weak spot and I can proudly put the item on the mantle.
This stuff is AMAZING!!! It's better than superglue in as much as it doesn't run, it doesn't dry before I'm ready and it's easy to control the flow. Once I have the pieces in place just so it takes just 3-5 seconds of shining the light and it's set! Once it's set it does NOT come apart, it doesn't wiggle or shift in anyway and things I repaired upon receiving this, which was nearly 2 mos. ago, are still repaired and show no signs of weakening. This includes items that get used quite a few times weekly and 1 item that I use every single day. It's my favorite pen which got broken while in the bottom of my purse. It was broken in such a way that I lost the ability to have the ink cartridge come out when I twisted the cap. It works perfectly now, the top twists just like it's supposed to and I do indeed use it every day.
This stuff is amazing, especially for repairing glass. A thin line of the liquid plastic along one edge, then fit the broken piece in place. The flexible plastic allows for adjustments to be made before using the light to cure and harden the plastic. 5 seconds later, place the repaired item back on the shelf for display...you are done! No mess and no fuss!
I tried every kind of plastic glue I could find but they would not glue my expensive plastic sunglasses. I bought this plastic weld and cleaned the break again, I put on the liquid and put the blue light on it for 5 seconds and it fixed it.
This stuff works for me. You have to be selective about where you use it. It works great on glass, ceramics, agates, etc. Love how fast it is. Eliminates having to stand around holding some tiny part for hours.
