UV Resin Glues

An advert for one of these popped up on social media, and my first though was how useful this could be on a RIB for repairs at sea. It seems it cures under water, or certainly when wet, in a few seconds.

Apparently invented by a dentist, who used the UV activated compound they have for fillings to repair his reading glasses.

Has anyone had a play with any of these products yet?

I donít know if it is the same stuff but uv cured resin has been around to fix surfboards for years.

It does cure quickly but it is definitely more of a temporary fix than a proper job as far as surfboards go.

It goes yellow fairly quickly and shrinks so that the repair has to be done again. I guess it would be great for an emergency repair but if you have time a proper repair with cloth and resin will be much stronger and longer lasting!
