Bondic Review- UV Activated Glue | EpicReviewGuys 4k CC


– Hi, I’m Parris. And in addition to adhering
more closely to my diet, today I’m planning to adhere metal clip to the top of my virtual reality camera so I can hook this to a kite and fly it up in the air. Now this might not seem like
the best time to try out a new adhesive, but the
adhesives that I’m familiar with, I don’t trust to hold the weight of this onto a kite string, so I’ve seen ads for Bondic, this like a
liquid-plastic welding which as near as I can
tell is fairly similar to composite fillings in the teeth. Those are strong, they seem
to adhere to your teeth really well, even through
thousands of hours of chewing, so I’m gonna put my faith in this Bondic’s material to fly my camera up with a kite today. Let me show ya how this works. ♫ Epic Review Guys ♫ – I ordered my Bondic’s kit online and it came in this cute little container. Inside you can see the applicator and the light. It also came with a set of instructions that I’ve already read through. So I don’t think this is exactly like the composite material that
fillings that dentists use, but it seems to be pretty similar. You basically apply the
liquid material resin and you use UV light to cure it. Which, if you’ve ever
had those white fillings done in your teeth, you
know they stick a UV light in your mouth and put it near the spot they’ve done the filling. And after five or 10 seconds it’s completely cured and hardened. You can go out and eat
food on it right away. This kit, with a single,
I guess tube of the liquid goes for about $20. If you’d like to find out
more about this Bondic kit, there’s a link to it right
down below this video. As soon as I open the
metal case this came in I smelt a fairly strong chemical smell. So I’m guessing that’s
the resin that’s included. You wanna be careful with that. As well as with the UV
light, not to shine it in your eye or anyone else’s. To activate it, I’ll point
it over to the side here. You just squeeze it. That turns on the UV light. You put that near the
liquid that you’ve extruded, that you wanna use to
adhere two things together and it should, within four
seconds, completely harden. This little piece pops out of here if you would rather, to get a good angle at where you’re trying
to apply the UV light, if you need to take it out. And this, comes off of here. And here’s where you’ve got
your vial of the liquid. This is supposed to be good for 12 months if you store it at room temperature. And it’s not supposed
to harden in the bottle. You notice it’s black plastic that the light can’t get into, because even regular sunlight will provide some UV light and cause that hardening
reaction to happen. I don’t know what’s gonna happen when I finish unscrewing
this, if it’s exposed or not. Maybe I’ll do it this way. Um. That’s the liquid. How do we apply it? Alright, didn’t see this
in the instructions. I thought they forgotten to give me the precision metal applicator tip, but the way to expose
that is to hold on to the part that you would normally unscrew to dump a lot out, and there, is that tip. Oop, it’s already got some
liquid coming out of it. Otherwise you can unscrew
this whole top portion of the vial and dump it out. But you probably don’t wanna do that because you have to
apply this in thin layers and you have to cure each layer before putting another layer on it. You also wanna work with clean, but slightly roughened surfaces, because that gives the material more little grooves and
indentations to hold on to. I think that’s what they’re
doing when they go in and clean the filling out in your tooth. They work around there, they leave it smooth, but roughened up so that the material can hold on. So this is my camera, the Ricoh Stata S. I do not want this to fall out of the sky, but I wanna be able to
get this up into the sky. It’s a nice windy day today and I really wanna attach this to a kite, leave it hanging below the kite and record in virtual reality. On top there’s some little
holes for the speakers and then a perfect spot
right in the center where I’m gonna try to attach a button with a loop on it. Here’s the surface I’m
going to be working with. I’m gonna try to put the button with the flat side down here right between the microphone holes. And see what I can do about
getting the UV light in there. Of course this adheres best
when you can shine the light clearly on what it is
you’re trying to adhere. There’s a little grooves underneath there so I’m hoping I’m gonna get
it to harden in place enough. Of course I’ll test it well
before actually sending it up. These are the buttons
that I’m going to use. This will be the part, it’s metal, this will be the part that will
adhere onto the top of that and there’s a little loop
sticking out the other end. That’s what I’ll be able
to put the string through. Also according to their recommendations I’m going to use a
little alcohol wipe here to wipe down this area. You don’t wanna have
any oil from your skin or anything else on the material that you’re going to try to bond that might not let it get a good grip I also used the alcohol wipe
on the back of the button so that will be all ready to adhere. And this is what I’m
looking for right here, so have the button with
the loop stick up like that so I can attach a string
to the top of this camera. Here I go. Um kay, I’ve already go
liquid here on this metal tip. I’m gonna put just hopefully a tiny bit. Well this isn’t really runny. This is kind of like liquid
rubber cement sort of material. It’s a little gummy. Okay. So I will put that there. Take my button, plop it on there. Here’s the plop, better get it straight. Okay it stayed liquidy. Now it’s time to add the UV light, see what I can do here and then I’ll build up
some layers around it. UV light, four seconds. Don’t look at it with my eyes. Dare I try to pull it off? Let’s see. Well, doesn’t slide off. Well, it’s on there pretty good. I don’t wanna pry it off, but I wanna know if it’s possible to pry it off. Okay, gonna try a little fishing line through the loop. Well, it’s passing that test. I’m not entrusting this to
going 200 feet up in the air without adding some more, but I’m impressed that it stays liquid and easy to move the objects around. It doesn’t start drying right away and then they get stuck
in the wrong position, you have to break it
off, try all over again. So, this is pretty cool that you can apply the liquid, get everything
right where you want it, then take the UV light and
get it to freeze in place. Here’s what I think is
the finished product. I don’t wanna keep putting
more and more layers on it, make a big glob on top. Just put what I need. Now this is on here pretty good. I am trying to twist it or peel it off and it’s not coming. So I think I’ve done a good job. The test will be in the flying, which I’m gonna head out shortly to do, and I’ll include some
of that in this video. (wind blowing) – [Voiceover] Okay. – Ready? Yeah, it’s spinning too much. Gotta perfect the idea. As you could see in that video clip, the Bondic did an amazing job of attaching this little piece
to the top of the camera. If only I had done an equally
amazing job flying the kite and not crashing this into the ground, but it still works, more
experimentation required to try to get this up in the
air to do some recording. According to their advertising,
Bondic is supposed to work perfectly well in
situations where it will be exposed to liquid and if I’m right about it being a similar material to the fillings of the teeth, then yes, exposed to
liquid it should do fine. Also you can use it in low
voltage electrical situations. If you’re gonna try that be sure and read carefully what they say about it. But if some piece of a
connector is missing, you might be able to use this material to fill that in. I don’t have needs for those, but something I always
thought would be kind of cool would be to take two
pennies, stick ’em together so you have a two headed coin. So I’ve got two pennies
here, I’m gnnna try sticking them together with this. The reason for that is I
don’t think it will work. I’m going to put a little bit
of the material in the middle, hold the pennies together
and shining the UV light from the side, I suspect it won’t be able to penetrate enough to
actually stick them together. Which does show the limitation of this, it’s not like regular glue
where you can stick a little someone where way down in
the middle of something that has to be stuck
together, hold it together and it will stick. This won’t if you can’t
get the UV light in there. Okay, I’ve got my pennies. Now that should be plenty in the very middle of the coin. I don’t see it coming out the sides. (mumbles) slippery
sliding over each other. There is a little gaps there. Created by the liquid itself pushing the pennies apart. Okay, if that were gonna
get in there and work it should have gotten in there and worked. Nothing. No stickiness at all. So that’s my experience with Bondic’s. Works very well in situations
where you might not trust another glue, but
it’s only going to work where you can get that UV light to shine. Goes for $20 for this tube. I have a link to it down below this video and they sell those multi-packs if you tend to break lots of things you might wanna buy one of those. You can keep checking

  1. You should fill up some balloons and carry the camera that way. It's makes it way more stable smooth footage and easier to set up.

  2. I think I'd tested it on something else 1st to check the tensile strength of the adhesive. I would have tried Gorilla glue on my camera button rig 1st,before trying something,like an as seen on T.V. type product.

    Good review,Does it state that it wont work on any materials?

  3. Tell Roxanna, Ximena, and Winnie that they have been missed. I'm sure there is something they are passionate about to video for YouTube.

  4. Another nice review.  This might be a good item to review.  You can sit outside McDonalds and see if you really can access their free internet service. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B017KVVH76/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=1H13U8QIRUIZA&coliid=I16H1GTGR7JTK5&psc=1Thanks,Joe

  5. I have some other stuff where it states that even though the uv light cannot get through solid surfaces, it should cure within 24 hours regardless. Did you try that at all?
