Born2Bond™ Repair: Faster, tougher and with half the standard shrinkage 

Born2Bond™ Repair is a patented, gap-filling, instant adhesive and repair product with excellent adhesion to a very broad range of materials and surfaces. Repair is ideal for instant bonding and repairing, because it combines the strength of a structural adhesive with the speed of an instant adhesive. A tough polymer is achieved with a hardening time of under 10 minutes, and the gel consistency enables application in any orientation.
