AquaMaxx Reef Welder is a new and superior alternative to 2-part epoxies and other reef glues. The plastic pellets have a melting point of 140ºF/62ºC and can be reused over and over again. When melted, the pellets fuse together and become transparent and soft. Once it cools, it becomes opaque and hard, yet flexible.

As Reef Welder is 100% non-toxic, it does not affect your aquarium`s water chemistry and will not cause your protein skimmer to overflow. Perfect for gluing reef rock together or for attaching corals to your rockwork. It is also biodegradable (in soil conditions).

Made in England (UK) with ultra-high purity materials.

Directions
  • Mix Reef Welder pellets in hot water (does not need to be boiling hot).
  • Soak the pellets for 2 minutes or until all the pellets have become clear.
  • Carefully remove fused pellets and mold/knead by hand.
  • Apply resin to surface and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Reef Welder will harden as it cools.

Q
How well does it bond underwater? How to re-use it?
Does this product work to bond rocks under water, how long before it bonds? If it bonds well, adheres to join rocks, how is it re-usable if you cannot remove it?

Thank you for your great questions. Please note that the Reef Welder is not to be use underwater. It is a thermo-activated, moldable plastic and It works great for bonding dry rock together, attaching hard corals or frags to rock. It gets pretty hard within minutes after letting it cool down and to re use it you would need to remove it from the rock and heat it up again with some hot water.

You can, but you have to work very, very quickly! It cures in under a minute, so you have to know exactly where you're going to glue your rocks and you won't be able to fiddle with the positioning much once it is in the water.

Water needed to be super hot to make it react and soften enough to mold
REVIEW
Happy I went with this over a typical epoxy , no mess or stuff sticking to your hands. Made my aqua scape easy to do and hardened fast. Just make sure you heat water hot enough to make beads become translucent completely ✅

CONS
Turns white and not clear "it is labeled though"
REVIEW
I'm giving this product a 4 star rating because when it hardens it turns an opaque white, and I didn't realize that. *My* fault for not paying attention. Best to Microwave water for about a minute to get it hot enough to melt epoxy
