Answers:
A high refractive-index water clear resin that could be wiped on and smoothed off to fill scratches in plastic lenses (spectacle, vehicle lamps, luminaires). This might include a non-adhesive film to lay over the resin during spreading of the resin and curing to allow smoothing down the resin without dragging it, but easily peeled afterwards. Film would need to be rigid enough to sit flat over the scratches but elastic enough to sit down on the curved surface of the lens without puckering

Make it less/or not attractive to bugs! When applied at temperatures over 70 degrees Fahrenheit, all types of bugs are attracted to the material, presumably because it is manufactured of soybeans, beans and peanuts, and the bugs are searching for food. Maybe something that makes it unattractive to bugs - yet doesn't impact its properties - could be used as an additive.

Highest possible thermal resistance under dynamic load conditions. This is the major factor , that limits the use of "cold cured" adhesives in dynamic load applications (these are conditions often observed in industrial brakes and clutches applications).
