To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This stuff is amazing. They warn you and it is true, it cures in literally a minute, so be prepared, and be fast. I had to use pliers to get the last inch off the roll and apply it cos it cured so quickly. Good tip: the warmer the water the quicker it cures! I used it on an exhaust and while it says it can be used for that, it doesn't last long, maybe a few days at best, but in those few days it is excellent and does not leak. I highly doubt it is strong enough to be used to join a spade handle as they say, but it is fairly strong and makes a good seal for a temporary repair.
Somehow I'd managed to shear my exhaust pipe all the way across near the backbox, I think probably when I was rear-ended over 9 months ago. Being a diesel the lack of backbox being connected wasn't detectable!
Due to the shear being so close to the backbox, it was actually on the part which goes inside the slightly swaged larger pipe on the backbox, I had trouble tracking down an exact fit for a sleeve which would go outside the existing centre section of pipe (which has a DPF and CAT in it, so not cheap to replace) yet inside the backbox (which was in perfect condition after spending 2 hours removing the piece of sheared off pipe).
A slightly loose fitting sleeve was fitted and wrapped with this FibreFix Heat Wrap then clamped with normal exhaust clamps. The result after a brief heating up cycle which is required to cure the wrap, was a solid and leak free join.
Don't often write reviews but this was so unfit for purpose I had to. It doesn't harden like steel. The foil tape is next to useless in regards stickiness. And the exhaust blew a hole in it after 48 hours. All instructions followed.
I was a bit worried because of some of the reviews but it did the job perfectly. Its very strong. Ive used it for a while now and ive spent several hours mowing with the fix, engine got very hot but it held up well
I don't make up my mind on what the reviews say about items as I still like to try it myself. This stuff is terrible, I don't know if it was a bad item that I had but it didn't work at all. Won't be trying again
Not sure if the one I received was out of date or expired but upon opening the silver pouch it was rock hard already. Tried soaking it as the instructions stated but would not soften. possibly just received a bad one but certainly not worth the money. Not impressed with this product at all
