When duct tape sleeps, it dreams of being Bolder Wrap. That’s because Bolder Wrap isn’t just sticky; it’s structural. So it can actually make the kind of repairs that duct tape has tried and failed for years: broken handles, cracked pipes, and even fence posts.
In fact, its not really even fair to call Bolder Wrap “tape”. It’s actually a structural composite fabric, developed by Comptek, which has long been in the business of reinforcing communications towers and oil and gas pipelines. So fixing shovels is a walk in the park for these folks.
At the heart of Bolder Wrap is a fiberglass fabric. This fabric is saturated with a proprietary polyurethane adhesive. Together they create a super-rigid, super-strong repair for just about any surface you can imagine.
