I find it brilliant. I have used it for some many things.

Classic car repairs.
As an "absorber" on an electric scooter
For fixing various cables and bodywork

Thanks OP!

Thanks Davy.

@brownfinger - It's such a good product. I waterproofed an old car of leaks from the light cluster where rubber gasket replacements cost €400!!! The repair has lasted 4 years through hard driving, frost, heat & heavy rain and is still holding fast. I've used it on our Campervan in dynamic areas with movement and shifting from the fridge and the hot shower/toilet area.

note this only has a shelf life of a year.

an Irish lady was involved in inventing it but the initial firm ran out of money and afaik has nothing to do with her now.

I think this stuff is brilliant. Examples where it has been brilliant is protecting cables where they usually crack and fray. Also it has held up shower trays with multiple bottles and saved us drilling into tiles.

Only downside is that it does go off so you need to have some planned uses when you're buying it.

Tried to buy some. Put a product worth €8.99 in the basket...delivery charge of €2.99 added.

Is there a discount code to be applied?? Has anyone successfully gotten the free delivery?

this is brilliant stuff. keep it in the fridge to prolong life. I have used some that is dated 2017 recently and it's still fine.

I stocked up in the great woodies clear out of 2018 (spent €10 for about 250 worth of it) and have used it for repairing boots (shoegru!), philips hue wall switches, reinforcing the brackets under a foldable full size table tennis table after the screws popped out of board, hanging stuff on walls, numerous charging cables reinforced, kids have used it in lego sets, toys, projects.

+1 on this. It lasts far far longer than if you just store it in a cupboard

I find it to be very good stuff. If you are only looking for the three pack most Homestore and more places have them . If you live near one its handier and ordering online .
