Okay. That wasn't in your question (you might add it). Unfortunately, there are very few non-toxic materials which bind to metal (basically, the stuff needs to be able to "dissolve" the metal (in order to bind into/below the surface), and that more or less requires some level of toxicity. There are low VOC formulations, but you'll need to do some research on your own to find them. You can use "thistothat" as a start, to get the names of manufacturers (3M, Loctite, etc.) and search their Web site for options.

ok thanks. but i got it to bind. i decided to use benzo-monotic trihydromein. I made it in chemistry class last year. ok its my job. it forces any material to atmoaticly bind with any other. non toxic eviromentally safe, infact it great for cuts.its being deeploed for its first tour in iraq in three months time.it can fix any thing from tanks to cuts.great stuff to bad my company doesn't want to put it into the private sectorit could help alot of people with injurys.it doesnt weld it actuly forces the molicules to send out these strings wich then never stop growing untill pulsed with an electrical signal and then when intwined they form into one solid peace then whole proces takes roughly 45 seconds with a small swath say the size of a dollar bill.just dont let it get on your hands there never coming apart
