FixIts: User-Moldable Plastic for DIY Repair, Developed by Chris Lefteri

Chris Lefteri, the materials designer who literally wrote the book on the subject, has cooked up a new plastics-based concoction meant to be used for DIY repairs. Called FixIts, Lefteri’s blend of polymer-based herbs and spices comes in stick form and is user-moldable:

“FixIts are incredibly tough and made to last,” says the Kickstarter campaign. “Once hardened, they can be drilled into, hammered into, screwed into, sanded down or cut to size.” In terms of texture, “Once it has cooled down it forms a hard plastic that is similar to nylon in strength.” That ought be appealing for folks looking to outgrow Sugru.

Each stick is 150mm x 16mm x 4mm, and a three-pack will set you back $7. They’ve already been successfully Kickstarted, and there’s 24 days left to pledge.
