About Fiberfix

We have long been accustomed to small technological things in our lives, and we are not talking about complex technological solutions somewhere in the depths of industrial giant plants, or even not about gadgets in our pockets. No, now we are talking about trifles that were initially perceived literally as “Oh, no! such a thing cannot exist! it is against the usual nature of things!” and “This must be a miracle, anyway”.

Well, remember, indeed, the zipper, which we are so used to that we cannot imagine our clothes or shoes without it. And we can still remember the names of Elsa Scaparelli and Jean-Claude to thank them, because it was thanks to them that this fastener got from workers’ boots and military wallets into pants and clothes for children and adults. But can you remember the name the inventor of a zipper? No, there wasn’t just one peson – look this story up on Wiki, it really deserves your attention!

Or the newer invention of George de Mestral who invented the hook and loop fastener which he named Velcro. And the most surprising thing is that this invention does not contradict the laws of nature, but it was taken from it – after observing under the microscope how the  burdock burrs (seeds) are arranged.

Or even an older invention – sticky tape known as “scotch tape” or “duct tape“. It is impossible to imagine our today’s life without using a scotch tape – during the Great Depression, housewives used it to tape open milk packets, farmers – cracked turkey eggs, and lawyers – torn pages in documents. But what is there on Earth – I laughed every time when the hero of Andrew Taylor Weir’s book The Martian managed to stick together the broken parts of his ship in the open space!

Still, all these little things were invented about 100 years ago or thereabouts. How many of those small technological discoveries that changed our lives and were invented after the Second World War do you really can mention? Are there billions of such things?

Meet them both – Spencer Quinn and Eric Child!

There are still people on Earth who invent new things outside the confines of large laboratories, whether by accident or purposeful activity. These two invented something even better than scotch tape. Spencer Quinn was inspired by a homemade solution that used medical tape to repair broken tools. They called it FiberFix, it is an innovative repair tape that is better than scotch tape in terms of its characteristics.

Working alongside his partner Eric Child, they developed FiberFix with the intention of delivering a robust and enduring solution for numerous repair requirements. This product has received outstanding customer feedback, praised for its formidable strength and efficiency in mending various broken items.

And, in our story, we’ve missed the fact that the inventors of all previous gadgets registered more than one and even more than a dozen patents for varieties of their products, and, in the end, remained not poor people at all, increasing the sales of their products in geometric dependence. So here again, realizing the potential for a commercial version of this repair film, Quinn and Child joined forces to perfect a product that would be easy to use, very durable and versatile. To bring it out of its small laboratory to the edge of the kitchen table on the shelves of pan-American retail chains was their next goal!
