5 second fix

New product on TV. 5secondfix.com. A new plastic welding system using UV light. Anybody going to try one? Plastic welding is the one item I can't seem to find a kit that works to my liking. Not expecting structural strength but something that holds covers and such together.

I dont think it's going to be as sturdy as plastic welding, or suitable to this trade. I've used Bondic (same product sold elsewhere than TV) to repair frayed charging cords and it's worked well. Trying to repair a crack in a plastic belt shroud, not so well, but then I dont think I scuffed the plastic well enough before hand. It stayed in the actual crack, but peeled off the surrounding surface. Oh, and the first package received had a cracked cap on the bottle of material, which I repaired with the same. They also sent me a new kit to replace the cracked bottle cap. It was a gift.

You have to have the right type of plastic welding rods or your repairs wont work.

Theres epoxys that also work, but again you have to have the correct epoxy.

I have all rods and use multiple techniques. I just wondered if this one produced neater results. My best has usually been popsicle sticks and epoxy on the backside.
