How to use Bostik Fix & Flash to repair cable

Repairing cable with Bostik Fix & Flash

Fix & Flash is easy to assemble. To get started, simply screw on the nozzle to pierce the seal. Make sure the two parts are well attached and that the LED is by your side.

Once you’re ready to glue, discard the first few drops of glue onto a piece of paper. Then apply a continuous bead of the glue to the damaged cable. When you’re finished gluing, clean the nozzle and replace the nozzle cap tightly. Because Bostik Fix & Flash is repositionable, you choose when they are ready to set the glue before applying the light. Once you are ready, just switch on the LED, then shine it all around the glued area for 15 seconds (depending on the thickness of the glue layer), remembering to turn the light off when finished. And you’re done!

How to repair cable with Bostik Fix & Flash - your simple step by step guide

1: Do the preparation

Protect your work surface and make sure that the cable surface to be glued is clean and dry, with no dust or grease.

2: Assemble

Screw on the nozzle to pierce the seal. You can test the UV light by pushing the switch below the bulb. Don’t look directly into it and keep at a distance of 2cm from the glue.

3: Make a start

When you’re ready to glue, discard the first few drops of glue onto a piece of paper.

4: Apply the glue

Apply a small amount of the glue to create a continuous bead covering the damaged area of the cable. Clean the nozzle and replace the nozzle cap tightly.

5: Adjust

If there are no pieces to reposition, you should wait at least three seconds to achieve an initial tack before applying the light.

6: Flash light to set

Switch on the LED, then shine it around all the repaired area for 15 seconds (depending on the thickness of the glue layer), turning the light off when finished. And you’re done!

Had a spill?

Remove any unset glue with a dry cloth and acetone, or remove dry glue by sanding.
