About Bionic Bond
Bionic Bond is an ASOTV epoxy adhesive that’s claimed to be three times stronger than cement and to adhere almost every surface, including concrete, stucco, brick, wood, metal, fiberglass, and more.
According to the manufacturer, Bionic Bond features a dual chamber syringe with two resins that, when mixed, “react powerfully” to create a “bionic thermosetting polymer.” Once this occurs, Bionic Bond is claimed to create an airtight seal that can withstand heat up to 550 degrees, and that can even be used underwater.
Because of its bonding power, Bionic Bond is claimed to be ideal for quick fixes inside and outside of your home, including securely hanging shelves without nails or screws, permanently affixing materials to tiles, replacing floorboards and trim, and more. And unlike glue, Bionic Bond is claimed to be mess-free and to never dry out (more about this in a moment).
Are you tired of “quick” fixes around the house taking hours of your time? Is Bionic Bond the all-in-one solution you need, and is it worth your hard-earned money? Consider the following:
What Ingredients Are Contained In Bionic Bond’s Epoxy?
At its most basic, epoxy is “a type of durable glue that provides a high level of bonding properties that are far superior to most ordinary paste style glues. Generally sold in a two component package that requires mixing just before use, epoxy is used to securely bind a number of different types of metals, plastics, and woods.”
And according to MasterBond, “When considering the effectiveness of an epoxy adhesive, it is useful to analyze the general formulation of the compounds that constitute it.” However, Bionic Bond’s manufacturer doesn’t let us know which polymers are used to make the epoxy, or how this compares against the competition.
Explore All Your Epoxy Options
Speaking of which, a quick visit to your local hardware or home improvement store will reveal several epoxy options very similar to Bionic Bond (e.g. 2 polymers that activate when mixed). Ultimately, this may be able to provide you with similar results, without the hassle of ordering online or losing a good chunk of change in S&H charges (more about this in the Pricing section).
Other Thoughts About Bionic Bond
According to the product’s website, Bionic Bond is claimed to be 3X stronger than cement. However, we can’t help but think that the manufacturer is referencing rubber cement (another type of adhesive) here, and not concrete. Although this might be obvious, we felt it was worth pointing out.
Also, the company claims that Bionic Bond will never dry out, which is good because each polymer tube doesn’t appear to feature a resealable cap, so you’ll want to take extra care when storing.
Finally, keep in mind that if Bionic Bond grips as well as the manufacturer claims, it will probably ruin whatever you apply it to. For example, if you use Bionic Bond to affix a transition to your wood floors and need to remove it at a later date, you’ll almost certainly need to replace any nearby boards as well.
Are Customers Glued to Bionic Bond?
Bionic Bond was a very new product at the time of our research and didn’t have any online customer reviews available.
However, Bionic Bond is manufactured by Spark Innovators based out of Fairfield, NJ, an up-and-coming company within the “As Seen on TV” industry who also makes popular ASOTV products such as InVinceable and Engrave-It Pro.
Between these 2 products, HighYa readers have given them an average rating of 2 stars, with common complaints citing failure to work as advertised, poor quality, and poor customer service. While you may not experience the same with Bionic Bond, it’s important to keep in mind nonetheless.
From a company perspective, Spark Innovators holds an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau based on just 5 closed complaints (as of 3/26/15), only one of which was available for review and referenced excessive charges.
Bionic Bond Pricing & Refund Policy
Two tubes of Bionic Bond are priced at $10 plus $15 S&H.
Bionic Bond comes with a 30-day refund policy, less S&H charges. This means by the time you ship your Bionic Bond tubes back to the manufacturer, you might spend twice as much in S&H charges as you’ll receive as a refund.
With this said, if you’d like to request a refund, you’ll need to contact customer service at 866-587-1042 for a return authorization number.
Can Bionic Bond Help Make Projects Easier?
Chopping to the Point: When it comes down to it, Bionic Bond probably will help you adhere any 2 surfaces together. However, since we’re not informed what makes the epoxy different from the competition, and that nearly identical products will be available at local retailers for lower prices, we might recommend exploring these options before placing your order.
