Reheating can be a problem

It is not great for outdoor items that may sit I. The sun. When the repair heats up it become soft and looses its strength.

I bought this as a surprise for my husband and he loved it! He immediately rattled off about about five different kinds of things he could use it for. A hit with him for sure!

I used the tape to bind the ferule (metal band) of my watercolor brushes to their wooden handle. The brushes are expensive and I hate to have to re-buy my favorites when they are working well for me. This tape is amazing! My brushes stand in water while I am painting and then of course are cleaned with water and are damp for a period of time afterward. The tape binds the two pieces and they don't loosen. I may never have to buy another brush!
Exactly as pictured

My long broom has a handle exactly like the blue handle in the photo for this product. With my hair dryer, I was able to save myself the bother of having to find another broom handle to fit this garage sweeper. The product is going to be used on some outdoor roof drains that come unsnapped, when the weather warms up a bit. It's a first aid for things that are beginning to break apart, and quite the fixer.
A must have for household repairs!

I used the tape to repair a broken plastic handle on a water dispenser. I didn't think it could be repaired, so I looked online to see if a replacement was available and it was not. I had just purchased the tape and it was so easy to use. I successfully repaired the handle and I tried to see if I could bend it and it is probably stronger now than it was in its original state.

Forj

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.
