The FiberFix review will give you a breakdown of the bonding strength and other key properties of the tape that is transforming how we fix things.
What is FiberFix?
FiberFix is a super-strong tape that is claimed to be mind-boggling 100 times stronger than duct tape. But is it too good to be true?
According to Smithsonian, tests conducted at Brigham Young University do indeed confirm that FiberFix is much stronger as compared to duct tape. But not 100 times. You can dismiss that as marketing hyperbole.
Its inventors, Spencer Quinn and Eric Child say that FiberFix is great for repairing just about anything from damaged bicycles to leaky pipes. FiberFix is meant to simplify repairs. It brings in the ease of duct tape and the strength of epoxy. Unlike epoxy though, FiberFix does not create a mess. Since it is easy to use like duct tape, almost anyone can apply it without hassle. Of course, the key benefit is that FiberFix is much more tenacious as compared to duct tape.
FiberFix boasts the usual range of benefits that make duct tape useful. That is, it dries in a few minutes, is non-flammable, non-toxic, waterproof, and resistant to heat and cold.
Thanks to its brute strength and aforementioned benefits, it could radically transform how we repair things.
Are They Still an Active Company?
They seem to still be selling their products, but their website is no longer live.
How Did the Shark Tank Pitch Go?
The founders Eric Childs and Spencer Quinn entered the Shark Tank looking for $90,000 in return for a 10 percent share in their business. In the end, they got a deal of $120,000 for 12% from Lori Greiner.
Our Review of FiberFix
FiberFix is the tape that is looking to profoundly change the way we repair our stuff. It comprises industrial fibers and proprietory resin mix.
According to its inventors, the tape is suitable for fixing just about anything, be it a broken hose, broken shovel, leaking pipe and even furniture.
Activating the resin is simple. You just have to soak the tape for some minutes in water. It takes 5 minutes to harden.
Users can also paint and sand it to impart a fine look if they so desire. Hence, this tape is built to be versatile.
Where is the catch then? There is indeed one caveat to beware of. Since the resin is so incredibly tenacious, you have to avoid getting any of it on your hands. So when working with this tape, you need to be wearing gloves. Even then, that is a small price to pay and a minor inconvenience compared to the myriad benefits.
At some point, you probably had to toss something merely because the tape wasn’t strong enough to fix it. That could change now thanks to the advent of FiberFix. This repair tape is designed to be as versatile as it is strong. Hence, it can be utilized for a wide range of situations and materials.
Now you might be thinking that you can go for super glues to repair stuff that duct tape can’t fix. While that may be true, you can’t deny that super glue is inconvenient to work with. Also, FiberFix is very easy to apply and gives you great strength that is in the super glue territory. So why bother with messy super glue when you have something that is straightforward to use like FiberFix?
FiberFix can work for a wide range of materials like metal, plastic, and wood.
The makers of this ultra-strong tape have made some truly stupendous claims. Apart from the “100 times stronger than duct tape” hyperbole, lab tests do seem to back up most of these claims.
One nice fact pertaining to this tape is that it works on all kinds of materials and surfaces. This is a major achievement since resin cant work for certain key materials. The inventors had to invest a lot of time and effort in designing a resin that is universal. Their efforts have paid off and now they have the strongest tape on their hands.
Whether it’s wood or copper, FiberFix can fix it easily. Hence, it is highly versatile. And it is far more convenient than super glue which can be a messy and troublesome bonding medium. So if you don’t like to mess around with super glue then FiberFix is the way to go. Compared to super glue, FiberFix is much easier to use. Just make sure that you are wearing gloves and the repair job will prove to be a breeze for FiberFix is an ultra-strong tape. Hence, you can use it just like other tapes except that you will be getting unmatched tenacity.
Another thing that we liked about this tape is that you can paint over and even sand it. Hence, you can provide it with a good finish to make your repair job look slick and well done.
All in all, considering how extremely strong and simple to use it is, it will prove to be a good option for duct tape and super glues.
