Bug-Bond is a Multi-Purpose UV Cure Resin which has been put together with the 395nm UV torch in a kit designed primarily for fly tying as an easy to use replacement for epoxy, which can be messy and time consuming. It has been developed for use as a coating and is ideal for coating and doming applications. The optically clear and tack free formulation also makes this product suitable for fly tying, rod building and various other applications.
Bug Bond has been designed to be tack-free and optically perfect when cured correctly. The kit includes -
- One 20ml bottle of Bug-Bond Original UV Cured Resin (we can supply with BugBond Lite on request)
- 395nm UV (ultra violet) flash light (including batteries)
- Pro tip set (a must have to use with kit)
Bug-Bond (Original-Clear) is supplied with an applicator which allows you to apply small amounts and work this with a bodkin or a wooden tooth pick to get the desired effect on the item and then cure...this can take as little as 5 to 10 seconds. Large amounts of resin in saltwater baitfish patterns can take longer to cure BUT not as long or as inconvenient as using a drying wheel if using two part resins. A great feature of BugBond is that it will not to yellow on exposure to sunlight... in fact strong sunlight will deepen the cure further.
Testing has proved successful with large heads on pike flies, encapsulation of heads and dumbbell eyes on freshwater and saltwater patterns as well as full baitfish bodies, grayling bug backs, epoxy style buzzers and shrimp exoskeletons.
