Braeön Universal Repair Plastic

by Joseph


It’s like something out of William Gibson: A material that’s strong, durable, and versatile enough to repair almost anything. But it’s not science-fiction, it’s Braeön, a new plastic ribbon-like material that’s purportedly “as strong as steel, as flexible as rope and as malleable us putty.”

Braeön works by heating it up and molding it to the shape you need. Once it cools, in its bonded form it’s as strong as steel, making it a handy solution to all manner of household problems, as well as to any quick repairs you may find yourself needing to make over the course of your many, many outdoor adventures. You can also use it for “custom grips, handles, and harnesses in seconds,” but if you think I’ve got the time or the space to tell you all the different applications there is for a product like this, you’re nuts!

Instead, you can get more information on Braeön at the product’s official site here, where you can order some of your own starting at $18.
