Super glue is a pain to use. It smells really bad and if you use too much your parts won’t stick together. Use too little the parts won’t stick together right either. The problem I have always had was that the glue always seemed to dry too quickly. A new type of glue has debuted called Bondic and the creators say don’t think of it as glue as much as welding with plastic.
Bondic comes out of a tube in liquid form and once hardened it can be sanded and painted. It hardens with exposure to a UV light source. Until it’s exposed to UV light, it remains a workable liquid. No drying too fast for Bondic as can happen with super glue. This also means that if you forget to cap the tube, it will never dry out.
Bondic will stick to wood, plastic, and fabrics. You can also build up the product layer by layer until the strength needed for a project is achieved. Each Tube of Bondic costs $22, which makes it rather expensive. It might be worth it if you don’t want to smell super glue fumes and want something that can be sanded and painted after the repair is made.
