Toughest adhesive for heavy duty / mechanical items (gap-filling)
Mix the powder with the liquid, over about 20 mins it turns from a syrupy liquid to a thick gel to toffee-like
and ends up at hard as rock (tip: if you haven't finished using it, you can extend the setting time by stirring in a little more liquid). What you end up with is a very solid tough surface, so tough that it is used in dentistry.
Not only is this suitable for plastic items, but also for metal including high-stress moving parts ('critical high point stress joints').Examples
A plastic device (anything) that is so worn it's actually cracking apart. Coat it with FUSION, the result is an almost bullet-proof coating (if necessary it can be drilled, pegged, or screwed).
A watch with a broken lug (the bit that fixes to the watch casing, into which you fit the pin that holds the strap) - it had snapped off. Fixing an approximately-sized blob of FUSION was easy. Filing and drilling it to match the intact lug did take skill, but the result was a valuable watch that was now useable.
I fixed a metal light fitting with FUSION, the metal had snapped. Especially good for cast metals such as aluminium which cannot be soldered back together.
