Can we use FiberFix® to repair some items?

FiberFix is ​​the disposable repair band hardens quickly, even under the influence of humidity in the air, keeping the FiberFix® standard power unique. Once unpacked, it can not be retained for future use. However, it is possible to cut the tape to repair 2 or 3 smaller items at the same time as you need to follow the instructions for use.

How long does FiberFix® need to fully cure?

It usually takes 10-15 minutes, you can not use your FiberFix®-repaired items. The exact time depends on two factors that you can consider: 1) ambient temperature 2) how wet FiberFix® is wet. At a temperature of about 22 ° C and immersion in FiberFix® water will begin to cure after 3 to 5 minutes. This gives you plenty of time to make a tight wrap. After another 5-10 minutes FiberFix® will be almost hardened and you can use the item as before. High temperature will accelerate the cure process, and in low temperature and humidity the cure can last up to about 20 minutes.

Can FiberFix® be used to repair flat surfaces?

The FiberFix® Repair Tape provides excellent durability when fully wrapped around an object. If it spreads on a flat surface, it will harden, like steel, but it may peel away from the surface. That's why we do not recommend using a FiberFix® UV repair pad on flat surfaces.

If you have any doubts that the FiberFix® repair tape is the right solution for you, remember: if you can wrap around the object, then you can repair with FiberFix®.

Which wrap size should I use?

FiberFix® repair tapes are 3 cm, 5 cm and 10 cm wide. To choose the right size, you need to know how big the item is to be repaired and the power you need. For repairs that require more durability, and have a larger surface such as shovel grips, pressure pipes, beams - use the 10cm strip.

The 5 cm wide strip is 127 cm long and is perfect for items such as furniture, pipes and small / medium garden tools. The 3 cm wide strip is 102 cm long and is perfect for items like awnings, umbrellas, fishing rods or tools.

Certainly, there are exceptions to these recommendations. For example, for the sophistication of objects with complex shape and in narrow spaces such as tubes beneath the washbasin, it is best to use 2-3 strips of 3 cm rather than 10 cm. If the object can be tightly wrapped with several layers around the broken section on both sides, then each FiberFix® tape is suitable.

How to use FiberFix for pipe repair;

When working with FiberFix® for pipes and pressure pipes up to 4 bar, follow the following tips for strong and insulating winding:

  1. Check the surface to be wrapped. If it is smooth, such as PVC, it should be well rubbed with sandpaper so that FiberFix® can hold on and around it. For best results, sand the surface with sandpaper in the direction you will wrap the tape and then clean the dust dirt.
  2. Select a film that is long enough to be wrapped 8-10 times around the crack of the tube and 5-10 cm on both sides on a stable surface. In most 5m or 10cm pressure tubes it is the most appropriate. If you are repairing in the narrow and difficult areas or wrapping complex curves such as links, then some 3cm of tape may be more suitable for you if you can wrap enough layers to achieve strength.
  3. When repairing a pipe leak, it is important to wrap FiberFix® as tightly as possible. You should see how the resin is pressed and that it is coming out of the windings while you are tightening. When you finish wrapping, lie down the resin with massage moves on the windings to fill the gaps.
  4. Wrap the vinyl tape around the already installed FiberFix® and wait for it to harden completely. After a few minutes, remove the vinyl tape. You should have extremely strong waterproof wrapping.


What does vinyl tape use in the kit?

This film has a key role in delivering the exceptional power of FiberFix®. When installing the repair tape and lying the resin temporarily wrap with a vinyl tape as you wrap it tightly. This compresses the layers until FiberFix® hardens. It's best to start with the vinyl tape from where the FiberFix® wrapping ends. By wiping the vinyl tape tightly, you need to feel a bit stretch and a little bit of the resin. You may feel light heating. This is another proof that FiberFix® hardens well.

After a few minutes FiberFix® will harden completely and you can remove the vinyl tape. The surface of the winding should be nearly as smooth as glass, which means that the winding is more stable, stronger and denser than vinyl tape winding.

At what temperature can FiberFix® withstand?

The original FiberFix® repair tape is resistant to cold and heat in the range from -45 ° C to 148 ° C. This temperature range is sufficient for most applications. On surfaces such as fireplaces, ovens and some automotive parts, FiberFix® has to withstand the higher temperatures. For these purposes, we have created a special FiberFix® Heat Wrap High Temperature Repair Tape, which is resistant to temperatures up to 454 ° C.

Can FiberFix® be cut into small pieces?

Yes! FiberFix® is easily cut with scissors before immersing it in water. Just clean the scissors immediately. If you conserve more than one item, ask for help from your friend so you can have enough time to wrap the broken items before FiberFix® starts fastening. For small items, you can use a 3 cm strip that has a length of 102 cm. The 5 cm strip is 127 cm long and 10 cm long is 153 cm long.

How many degrees should be the temperature of the water in which FiberFix® is dipped?

No! No need to use a thermometer! FiberFix® simply hardens faster in warmer, slower in cold environments. We recommend that the water is near room temperature, because it has a faster cure time and provides enough time for tape wrapping (3-5 minutes). With hot water you may not have enough time to wrap FiberFix® well, while with cold water you will need to wait longer for hardening to reuse your item.

How to remove FiberFix® after hardening?

We wish you good luck! We have tried several methods for removing FiberFix®. We tried with emery, acetylene torch burning, torsion, sawing, blasting, but we do not recommend any of these methods because it will destroy everything around which FiberFix® is wrapped. It is better to think in advance before using FiberFix®.

The FiberFix® stick was stuck in my hands. How can I clean it?

Included in the package are gloves to resist the resin, but sometimes it may mess your hands. Acetone based formulations such as acetone can help to clean the FiberFix® resin. Good sanding with an abrasive cleaner or water can help, but it will take longer. If you remove almost everything but remain small spots, they will fall by themselves within a few days.

Do we need special tools to use FiberFix®?

One of the main advantages of FiberFix® is that it does not require special tools. Just dip the tape in the water! The packaging includes everything you need to work with the FiberFix® repair tape.

  •  Nitrile gloves, non-latex, for all allergic users, and recommended when handling the film. FiberFix® is not toxic, but you do not want to dirty your hands.
  •  Sandpaper is included to be used for smoothing of smooth surfaces (especially for PVC)
  •  Vinyl tape is used temporarily until FiberFix® hardens, providing strong and tight wrapping.


Can FiberFix® work with sandpaper and paint;

Of course! Once FiberFix® is fully cured, you can smooth and paint for a more aesthetic repair.

Which materials can I use FiberFix®?

If you can possibly wrap it, you can repair it with FiberFix®. Wood, metal, rubber and almost all other materials are appropriate. Adhesion to glass and extremely smooth surfaces can be difficult for FiberFix®. Simply treat the surface with the sandpaper and wrap tightly!

Can FiberFix® be used for drinking water pipes?

Yes! FiberFix® is safe for drinking water pipe applications and repairs.

Is FiberFix® fire-resistant?

FiberFix® does not support burning, but it will burn when exposed to prolonged intense fire.
