Ok I have been out of school less then a year but was never told a thing about Bonder? Like Linkage and Protein Bond etc. Just Dehydrator and Primers. So whats the story? What am I missing out on that will make my life better?
Bonder is the same as a primer. It's just in the way they name it, I think.
As a man who formulates all 3 products, I'll try to shed a bit of light on the subject of Bonder, Primer, and Dehydrator.

Although conceptually they serve similar functions, they are different chemically.

Primer (whether acid or not) serve one primary purpose. Preparing the nail bed for acrylics. Chemically they are much more corrosive to the natural nail.

Bonder, Bond Aid, PH Plus is a bit more universal. They are solvent based used to remove oils and raise the ph of the natural nail. Raising the PH of the natural nail occurs because of their alkili / basic chemistry. This allows many different nail enhancements to stick better. Our bonder is called PH Plus. If you have an acrylic customer that lifts even with primer, PH plus should be applied prior to primer. If you are just polishing natural nails, a quick wipe with PH Plus helps prevent chipping. Basically, anything a nail technician needs to adhere better, PH Plus is a good first step.

Dehydrator, like PH Plus (Bonder), prepares natural nail surfaces for nail enhancements. The desired effect for the nail technician is quite similar...better adhesion. Dehydrator works on the premise that it dissolves the oils in the nail allowing for a more desirable nail surface. As a manufacturer, I formulate significantly less dehydrator than PH Plus (Bonder). Bonder (PH Plus) is a bit better at preparing the surface as well a bit more universal. PH Plus (Bonder) does have a slightly higher odor, but its negligible.
