FiberFix Could Be Even Better Than Duct Tape

by Conner Flynn

That headline is hard to believe I know, but it just might be true. Despite all of the things that we can do with duct tape, FiberFix may just come out ahead. FiberFix is a special tape that hardens into a steel-like material that is 100 times stronger than duct tape. Yeah, see what I mean? That is some amazing stuff.

Imagine repairing an item with this stuff. Chances are that it won’t break in the same spot again. It comes in airtight pouches because the resin that makes it so strong is activated with water. For the most part you can just use the stuff right out of the box because there is enough moisture in the air, but if you need to you can soak it in water. Just apply it to your broken item, say, the wood handle of a shovel, and after 5 to 10 minutes the resin hardens and adheres to the item you can use it like nothing ever happened. In some cases it can take up to 24 hours to fully cure and reach maximum strength, so for some jobs you will want to leave it alone overnight.

Prices start at $6(USD) for a 1 inch wide by 40 inch long strip, and you can grab a combo pack with three different sizes of FiberFix for $20. Not bad. This stuff is amazing. You just have to make sure you handle it safely, you don’t want to get this stuff on your hands or skin.
