A New Tool for the REME

As we all know, the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (REME), more commonly known as Royal Engineers Made Easy, have many roles, and complex they are too. It is also an iron law that most things can be fixed by the application of WD40 or Harry Black (black maskers etc etc), as this extract from the REME big book of fixing things shows.

REME

 

Science and technology move on and those fiendish colonials have developed a much-improved version of Mr Harry Black said to be 100 times stronger.

FiberFix, available for a mere $9.99 per roll, is simply dipped in water and wrapped around the item to be fixed. It air hardens and 10-15 minutes and that is job jobbed, although full cure takes up to 24 hours. It is completely waterproof, can be sanded and painted.

High temperature;

It is also available in flat patch form;

Clever stuff.

After seeing the video below, expect it will be popular in Japan as well!

Not just yanks see http://www.furmanite.co.uk/contact-us/.

I used their sealing tape on 3″ central heating pipe some 10 years ago and it is still in place against 45 psig

We used their injection flange repair service 30 years ago on gasworks often with 550 psig steam and distillate vapour

Until a few years ago one of their directors was a retired Captain (E)
