Forj thermoplastic tape Maker Joel Dyksterhouse is a composites engineer and he was always interested in exploring different material applications. When he first created the tape, he took it on a weekend hunting trip to try out—and it was soon all used up. The flexible, lightweight, and self-bonding tape repaired a canoe and worked as a tie-down strap during Joel’s trip, and it’s a versatile and durable fix for almost-endless situations.
All that super-tough fixing, patching, and custom grip-creating power comes from thermoplastic fibers and thermoplastic polymermatrix that give the tape a tensile strength of over 1,000 pounds. Just heat, press, and repeat to mold the tape to suit your job.
