RapidFix Liquid Plastic Adhesive with UV Light
Available at: Canadian Tire
If saying “abracadabra” makes you believe its magical, go ahead. The RapidFix method of mending small breaks includes a flashlight emitting UV light — which makes your repair a tiny magic show.
We analyzed RapidFix UV on a couple of things around the garage. Broken cup handles, broken tail lights along with the frazzled charging cable to get a smartphone have been lined up. There were some instantaneous failures and instant successes. If we had read the instructions properly, the failures could have been prevented. The glue depends upon the UV flashlight to harden. Glue between the mug handle along with the mug could not set.
Butt the bits together, place a bead of adhesive on the surface across the seam, then shine the UV flashlight along the luminous adhesive. The seams fixing the tail light, the tear in the faux-leather arm rest and the smartphone cable were fantastic.
The glue flows cleanly and the cap remains tight while in storage. And since the adhesion only works when exposed to the UV light, the nozzle does not get glued into the cap. When you run out of adhesive, save money by buying the RapidFix UV refill with no fancy flashlight.
