FiberFix Review

This is a one-time use repair wrap which has a wide variety of uses. The wrap is dipped in water and then wrapped like tape. It only takes minutes to harden.

The FiberFix website describes the product in this manner:

FIBER FIX Super Tape combines the strength of an epoxy with the ease of a tape. Here is how it works. Simply dip it in water to activate the specialized resin and then wrap it just like tape. It takes only 2-5 minutes to harden and with FIBER FIX Super Tape, when you fix it, you Fix It for Good. FIBER FIX Super Tape is waterproof, heat and cold resistant and works in almost any environment! It’s great for everyday uses because it is so easy to use and it only takes about 2 minutes. Broken rake handle – Fiber Fix It! Leaking pipe – Fiber Fix It! But don’t forget your boat, RV, emergency kit, camping gear and just about anywhere you need to fix something right the first time. If you are a professional or a Do-it-Yourselfer you’ve got to get Fiber-Fix. Whether its metal, wood, plastics, iron, aluminum, copper, rubber, or PVC it bonds with the strength of an epoxy and the wrapping power of tape.”

So does FiberFix really work?

Our tests could best be described as mixed. FiberFix’s primary “pro” is that it is tough as nails. It definitely lives up to the advertising as extremely rugged, long-lasting tape. Unlike regular tape, or even duct tape, you will first activate FiberFix by dipping it in water. You then simply wrap and let it dry. After it sits for about 10 minutes, the tape bonds to itself and presents a permanent fix. It’s a compelling product that means “taping” can now be a long-term solution to household fixes.

The biggest complaint we’ve heard from readers is that the amount you get for the cost seems rather stingy.  Another issue is that it is a one-time use and you must use all of the product after you open it. It seems to work better for some applications than others. If you’re set on using it, you may want to try the smallest box available and purchase locally at Home Depot before investing in larger quantities. Have you tried it? Where did you use it, and did it work?


Depending on your needs, the most popular alternative you may want to consider is Gorilla Tough & Wide Tape, which costs about $11 and holds a 4.8 star rating among hundreds of consumer reviews.


There are a variety of products, such as the $6 one-inch roll to a mixed-type large kit pack which can about $100. You can purchase FiberFix direct from Amazon, where you will probably find the best prices.

No, wasted $8. Used it in a higher pressure reclaimed water line after 30mins to cured. Still leaked so I cut it out and used a Lowe’s pvc 1″ patch kit for $5.

It only withstands up to 60 PSI. If there is still a problem with it, please feel free to reach out to our customer service team! You can email us at [email protected], and we’ll be happy to get you a replacement!

Saw the patch kit in Home Depot today. Pic on pkg did not show it being wrapped, but more used like a ‘iron on’ patch. How does this work if it does not ‘bond to itself’? Interested in patching holes in metal that is constantly exposed to the elements.
