Can PPG EZ FIX be used to repair more than one item?

PPG EZ FIX is a single use repair wrap that works so quickly because any moisture - even the vapor in the air immediately sets to work on forming that amazing PPG EZ FIX strength.  For this reason, it cannot be partially used and stored for later. It is possible to cut the wrap with scissors before it is applied and repair two small items at once (See "Can I cut PPG EZ FIX into smaller pieces?").

How long does PPG EZ FIX take to fully harden?

PPG EZ FIX takes about 5 minutes to harden reaching full strength in about 15 minutes.

Can I use PPG EZ FIX on flat surfaces?

We recommend using the PPG EZ FIX tape on round objects like cages, exhausts and frames= it can be used to repair gas tanks in a pinch as well!.

If you have questions about whether PPG EZ FIX Repair Wrap is right for your job, just remember: if you can wrap it, use it.

What is the included vinyl strip for?

The vinyl plays a key role in making your PPG EZ FIX repair even stronger. After you apply the PPG EZ FIX and work the resin in with your gloved hands, temporarily wrap the vinyl strip over the repair. This presses the layers of the wrap even more tightly together and seals the surface as it cures.  It’s often helpful to begin right where the PPG EZ FIX strip ended. As you wrap, you should feel the vinyl stretch a bit and the pressure should even force some of the resin out the sides. It may even feel a little warm to the touch. That’s just another sign that the PPG EZ FIX is curing well.

In a few minutes the PPG EZ FIX should be fully cured and you can remove the vinyl strip. The PPG EZ FIX should appear almost glass-like, revealing a repair that is tighter, stronger, and smoother than a PPG EZ FIX repair without the vinyl.  

What Temperatures Can PPG EZ FIX Withstand?

PPG EZ FIX repair wrap is heat and cold resistant between -50 and 300 degrees Fahrenheit.  Although this range is suitable for most purposes, some applications, like exhaust  systems require multiple wraps for best results. 

Can I Cut PPG EZ FIX into Smaller Pieces?

Yes! PPG EZ FIX cuts very nicely with scissors. Just be sure to wipe them off afterward. :) If you're repairing more than one item, consider asking a friend to help work on multiple items at once so you have plenty of time to apply it before it starts to cure.

Does PPG EZ FIX ship outside the United States?

PPG EZ FIX ships anywhere in the world!

Does the water used with PPG EZ FIX need to be exactly at room temperature?

Nope! No need for a thermometer here. As mentioned above, PPG EZ FIX simply cures faster in warmer conditions and slower in cooler ones. We recommend water at approximately room temperature because this conveniently allows for a quick cure while leaving enough time to wrap it well (3-5 minutes). With hot water, there may not be enough time to perform the repair while cooler water will result in a slightly longer wait before the item is ready to be used.

How do I remove the PPG EZ FIX wrap after it cures?

Good Luck! We have tried a variety of methods for removing PPG EZ FIX. We have ground it off with a bench grinder, burned it off with an acetylene torch, turned it off with a lathe cut it off with a chainsaw, blown it off with dynamite etc but unfortunately we cannot really recommend any of these methods because they will most-likely destroy whatever you are trying to remove PPG EZ FIX from. The best policy is to make sure you mean it before you PPG EZ FIX it.

The PPG EZ FIX resin got on my skin. How do I get it off?

We love that PPG EZ FIX comes with gloves for protection, but sometimes it just happens! Acetone products (such as nail polish remover) can be helpful in removing PPG EZ FIX resin, and good ol' scrubbing with a rough surface (such as the backside of a sponge) can go a long way, too! If all else fails, any residue you can't get off will be gone after a couple days. 

Do you need any special tools to apply PPG EZ FIX?

One of the best features of PPG EZ FIX is that no special tools are required! Just add water. The box includes a pair of nitrile gloves (not latex- if you were concerned about reactions) PPG EZ FIX is nontoxic, but you'll want to keep the resin off your hands. Using sandpaper to prepare surfaces will give PPG EZ FIX a better grip on glossy surfaces, such as gas tanks. The vinyl strip is a temporary option you can apply on top of the wrap for a few minutes to help it seal while it's curing. 

Can I use PPG EZ FIX as a cast in an Emergency?

I wouldn’t. it gets hot when it cures!  

Can I get other colors besides black?

Can I sand and paint PPG EZ FIX?

Absolutely! Once PPG EZ FIX has hardened you can sand it and paint it for a great-looking fix!

What materials can I use PPG EZ FIX on?

If you can wrap it PPG EZ FIX can probably fix it! PPG EZ FIX will not bond as well to glassy smooth surfaces, but most of the time using sandpaper will help.

Can PPG EZ FIX be used in pipes carrying potable (drinking) water?

Yes! PPG EZ FIX is safe for potable water.
