About FiberFix

Based out of Orem, UT, FiberFix is a fiber-resin wrap that claims to “harden like steel in minutes,” and to provide a permanent fix to a wide variety of materials even leaking pipes. FiberFix was originally featured on the popular television program “Shark Tank” in late October 2013, and was invested in by Lori Greiner, who is considered to be the queen of QVC. During the show, Ms. Greiner invested $120K of her own money into the company for a 12% stake.

Because of the product’s newness, FiberFix is not listed with the Better Business Bureau, and has minimal online reviews. However, those that do exist seem to be overwhelmingly positive.

How FiberFix Works

According to the FiberFix website, the product works in two steps:

  1. First, wet your FiberFix roll by submerging it in water, and then removing any excess.
  2. With latex gloves covering your hand, wrap your FiberFix roll around whatever needs to be repaired, and let it sit for a few minutes. However, most online reviews we found recommended letting it sit for at least 24 hours to achieve optimal hardening.

The manufacturer claims FiberFix can be affixed to almost any material, including metal, wood, plastic, rubber, and more. In addition, it is claimed to be 100-times stronger than duct tape, weatherproof, heat and cold resistant, and can be sanded to become unnoticeable on wood surfaces.

Based on the few online reviews we could find, FiberFix really does provide a lasting solution to broken items that would otherwise be impossible or very costly to repair. The only caveat is that FiberFix is not intended to be a patch; in other words, the material’s strength comes from layering, so cutting off a small piece and using it as a single layer will likely not provide the results you’re looking for. Also, because FiberFix will adhere to literally any material even your hands you must wear latex gloves when applying.

FiberFix Pricing & Return Policy

If you purchase FiberFix directly from the manufacturer, it is currently offered at $19.95 per set, which includes one 1-inch roll, one 2-inch roll, one 4-inch roll, in addition to one pair of latex gloves, and one sandpaper strip. However, like most “As Seen on TV” products, you’ll receive a second FiberFix set with your order, but will have to pay an additional $7.95 shipping and handling, bringing your total to $35.85. If you live outside the continental U.S. or in a U.S. territory, you’ll also be required to pay an additional $10 surcharge.

All FiberFix products come with a 30-day money back guarantee, less shipping and handling charges. This means you’ll be out $15.90 in shipping and handling fees, in addition to whatever costs you incur sending it back to the manufacturer. Keep in mind that this is typical of the vast majority of “As Seen on TV” products, and is how they make the bulk of their money.

With this said, it’s important to note that FiberFix is also available through Amazon.com, Home Depot, Ace Hardware, Lowe’s, QVC, eBay, as well as a wide variety of other retailers. Because of the expense of returning FiberFix to the manufacturer should you not be happy with its performance, we would highly recommend purchasing through a standard brick-and-mortar retailer.

Pros:

  • Relatively inexpensive solution to fix items that would otherwise be too costly, or too labor intensive to repair.
  • Can be quickly applied to a wide variety of surfaces.
  • 30-day money back guarantee, when purchased directly from the manufacturer.
  • Online reviews seem to be overwhelmingly positive.

Cons:

  • Very new product, so we’ll have to see how FiberFix performs over time.
  • If purchased from company’s website, cost to return can be almost as much as the product itself.

    Don't waste your money - Complete fail on leaky pipe.

    • Burlington, NJ,
    • Dec 3, 2016

    Sink pipe drain developed a hole causing a decent leak, much smaller than the photo of a cracked pipe on the FiberFix box I had. I followed the instructions - which did not state to use the included sandpaper. I then followed the video on YouTube. Applied exactly as described. With in one hour the drip just seemed to seep through this useless tape. Now what I have is an extremely hard as rock tape on this pipe - I started to remove it last night since this was a complete fail. Once this FiberFix tape sets, it is not fun trying to remove it. It might work fixing a broom handle, something small. As for dealing with water pipes, forget it, save your money.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Great Product!

    I have used this product around the house and around the farm. I have used it to repair shovel handles, pitchforks, the lines and handles, and it held up well. I use these tools daily so they have to stand up to constant pressure and weight.

    I also needed help with some fence boards and it secured them well.

    Love the product and used properly, it's a life saver.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Waste of time and money

    Followed directions to the letter. Wouldn't adhere to the object I attempted to fix nor to itself. It remained hard and non-sticky, actually. An amazing fail! My mistake was to not read reviews of this product before buying it. High hopes for this stuff. A great disappointment.

    Worked great for me

    • California,
    • May 8, 2016

    I repaired a broken fishing pole and it bonded just fine. The real test will be when I hook into a fat tuna, but it looks like it'll hold up just fine, since I bent the pole by hand and it didn't break.

    Only issue was the first layer is slippery so you kind of need two sets of hands for a job like this one, but it saved a rod so I'm happy.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Junk

    • Dover, Delaware,
    • Nov 24, 2015

    Had 2 small cracks in my fiberglass tub. Decided to try this product. 23 hours and $35 later and they still have not hardened. Waste of time and money.

    Waste of money and time

    • Fort Benning, GA,
    • Nov 5, 2015

    Waste of money. I tried to repair a broken metal piece on my motorcycle with the 1-inch. After a minute, the roll was a non-bonding waste that couldn't stick to itself or my metal. I followed directions to the T but it's not good for smaller parts. It's easier just to buy a replacement part than work with this stuff.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Sucks

    • Avon, IN,

    Don't waste your money. FiberFix does not do what it says it will do. Waste of time and money in my opinion.

    Make love to your duct tape!

    • Rhode Island,
    • Sep 12, 2015

    It sucks. It can't beat duct tape. It didn't get soft, wouldn't even stick to itself. Shame on you Shark tank. You should ask for your money back. One positive aspect is that I can't get it off my fingers.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      FiberFix tape has less density of a tape. We are a manufacturer from China. Can you try our more density fiberglass repair pipe tape? If yes, please contact my email.

    Not enough tape in package.

    • Arkansas,
    • Aug 16, 2015

    Seems to work ok but, I will have to buy two more packs to fix a 14 inch crack in a fiberglass pipe. That's almost a 30.00 dollar fix. Do not an affordable repair if you ask me. I recommend it for small repairs only and you have to use it all at once. Once it's exposed to air and moisture it hardens fast.

      Jenny

      Yes, you are right!

      1. This tape is fit to fix small leaks and cracks in pipes, due to the pressure of water.

      This tape is only made of fiberglass cloth and polyurethane resin 450psi.

      2. If the tape touches moisture or air, it will hardens. Due to this chemical reaction, the tape can fix the leaks and crack.

      We sell 3 inch tape for $1.25$-$1.90. If you need some, please contact Jenny, China factory. We can sell you a small order. jenny@piperepair.cn

    Did not fix leak

    • Birmingham, AL,
    • Aug 8, 2015

    Applied exactly as directed to a one and a half inch pvc pipe. The small leak remained the same. Waste of money. Wish I had seen this site prior to the purchase.

    Terrible product - DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY.

    • Denver, co,
    • Jul 23, 2015

    A windstorm blew over our outdoor umbrella breaking one of the pot metal arms. Purchased 2' x 50" package and followed the instructions exactly as written. The tape is thick and hard to work with. Would not confirm at all to my application nor adhere properly to itself or the metal frame I was trying to repair. In the fine print FiberFix says they make no representations as to the effectiveness of this product. Boy is that an understatement.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
