5 Second Fix


Can 5 Second Fix hardens in places with no light?

The bond is stronger to areas that can be easily accessed by UV light. Bonding through clear, semi-clear, or translucent material works well. If using solid materials, bonding in thinner layers is highly suggested. Liquid welder that is not accessible to the UV light will not bond, but should be cured over a 24 hours period.

Where can I use 5 Second Fix?

The liquid material bonds and then cures when exposed to UV light, and cannot be applied outdoors in direct sunlight. Work outdoors in a cool shaded area or indoors in a well ventilated area. Do not expose UV light into the liquid welder tube or tip. This may cause the liquid welder material to become bonded inside the tube.

How long does 5 Second Fix take to bond?

The UV light will bond 5 Second Fix liquid material approximately the size of a pea within 5 seconds. For larger application, allow longer exposure to the UV light to be sure the bond is made.

How do I use the UV light?

The UV light should be held within 3-5mm from the application area. The centre or “eye” of the UV light should be focused on the desired application area. Distance of light, clarity of the UV lens, thickness of the liquid welder and other factors will greatly influence bonding time.

How thick do I apply 5 Second Fix?

Depending on required thickness, apply 5 Second Fix in several layers. Each layer approx. 1mm-2mm thick can be bonded per the directions.

Can I modify previous 5 Second Fix projects by adding more 5 Second Fix to them later?

Can I connect parts using 5 Second Fix that have very small contact surfaces?

Yes, 5 Second Fix is excellent for small contact surfaces in almost all materials. Make sure to apply enough layers to ensure stability. To improve stability and pull-off force, you could make undercuts like little holes, scratches or cuts on both ends of the parts.

Can 5 Second Fix be removed from smooth surfaces?

We recommend the use of scrapers. Giving the 5 Second Fix a short, sharp shove from the side dislodges it cleanly from the base. Any remnants left behind can be easily removed with conventional cleaners.

Can I use 5 Second Fix as an insulating material?

What is the shelf life of 5 Second Fix in an unopened unit?

Yes 5 Second Fix can be wiped off surfaces that are not absorbent, we recommend baby wipes to make the process easier.

What is the LED life expectancy and why should I replace the whole thing instead of just the batteries?

Life of the battery is similar to that of any battery powered flashlight. You can expect to get roughly 8 hours of total use from the LED light and you are only using it for 5 seconds at a time! You could replace the battery but the production of the item doesn't make it easy to do so.
