The RapidFix Dual Adhesive System combines an Instant Adhesive with a Welding Powder and together they repair almost anything. 

The RapidFix Professional Adhesive bonds most materials instantly. These materials include rubber, glass, copper, aluminum, steel and most plastics.  It even bonds unlike materials to one another such as glass to aluminum or rubber to metal.

The RapidFix Welding Powder is used to repair all types of holes,cracks, gaps and can produce a strong weld seam to support the repair, just like solder or welded joints.

The RapidFix Difference

  • RapidFix will not dry out in the container.  Guaranteed for 12 months!
  • The convenient, non-clog nozzles allow for pin-point application of adhesive and welding powder.
  • The Rapidfix adhesive activates when oxygen is staved from the joint.  Firmly press parts together, hold together for a moment to remove the air, and the items are instantly bonded together.  Excess adhesive can be wiped away with any clean cloth material.
  • RapidFix is ready to go out of the bottle.  No messy mixing like epoxy-based adhesives which takes extra time and wastes product.
  • RapidFix bonds instantly.  Most epoxy-based adhesives have a minimum of 5-15 minutes drying time with a 24 hour cure time.
  • RapidFix is BOTH an adhesive AND a welding powder.  The welding powder extends the useful applications and repair capabilities. This is especially important when a repair calls for a "filler" solution while also needing an instant bond.
  • RapidFix has a much broader repair application.  The adhesive dries crystal clear so it can be used to make repairs to glass, ceramics, and most plastics.
  • When combined with the welding powder it can be used to fill wood, metals, tile, etc.  Then the repair can be instantly drilled, sanded, filed, stained and painted.
  • It can also be colored to match plastics or ceramics with a Sharpie type pen. Simply make the repair, smooth surface use the coloured pen to make the repair as invisible as possible.
  • RapidFix is also able to bond many "un-like" materials together such as rubber to plastic, glass to metal, PVC to metal, wood to ceramic, and on and on.

 

RapidFix is more than a super glue.

Who do I contact in an emergency involving RapidFix?

RapidFix adhesive is Non Toxic and will not damage the skin. Cyanoacrylate adhesives were originally developed for use in medical situations for bonding internal and external body tissue. If it comes in contact with the skin, gently and slowly roll the two surfaces apart. To clean the adhesive off the skin you can use acetone or rinse in warm soapy water. This will promote the natural oils in the skin to release under the adhesive and in about an hour it will simply start to lift off the skin.

RapidFix has a 24-hour medical emergency toll-free phone number that can help guide you through emergency situations involving the RapidFix product including unintentional contact with skin or ingestion.  1-800-374-3586

 

Will RapidFix bond anything?

RapidFix will bond many materials, but not everything. RapidFix is not suitable for Polyethylene, Polypropylene, Teflon, Silicon, mostly fibre based materials like paper and cloth.

 

What is the shelf life of RapidFix?

RapidFix will not dry out in the bottle under normal conditions like other instant or super glue type products. RapidFix is guaranteed for 12 months. To help extend the product’s life, make sure to clean the adhesive bottle’s nozzle and secure the cap. Storage is also a factor for shelf life. If stored out of direct sunlight in modest temperatures (60-70 degrees Fahrenheit), expected shelf life is around two years.

 

How do you clean up a RapidFix spill?

Acetone (commonly found in nail polish remover) is effective at removing RapidFix from many surfaces. For immediate clean up of wet adhesive use any cloth material dipped in acetone.  If the adhesive has dried it cannot be simply wiped off the surface. The area will need to be soaked for at least one hour to release the adhesive. Check that the material of the surface will not be affected by Acetone.

If you get some RapidFix on your hands, you can use acetone. When dry, RapidFix simply flakes off from the skin in a matter of hours due to natural oils and moisture that is now being released under the adhesive. To speed this process you can wash your hands in very warm soapy water. This will open the pours of the skin and release oil and moisture under the dried adhesive. The dried adhesive will then peel away in the course of the next hour.
