I bought this product to patch a cracked car rack luggage carrier. The product hardened as expected in direct sunlight, which was pretty impressive. However, the adhesion of the patch to the well sanded and "roughened" surface of the fiberglass carrier was unsuccessful. It simply pulled away right when I moved the rack and I was able to laminate it easy with my hands. This was after allowing it to sit overnight while the instructions encourage you to drill, sand and paint after it cures ~5min to over 1Hour. I tried again a second time after sanding and cleaning the patch area again, thinking I had not done enough. Same results.
Maybe I missed something, but i ended buying $15 worth of fiberglass cloth and good old trusted epoxy to repair the luggage carrier.
This patches are amazing. I have used them many times over past 3-4 years ( 4-6 patches) I broke through the siding with weedeater and this worked like a charm. Have used it for high stress and surfaces with rough use ( bottom of slide, bottom of cricket bat) and this works great) moulds well to the shape - does need good sun exposure to harden. Best if used all at once. Use it in a ventilated area with gloves and mask - this probably emits some vapors.
Seemed promising at first. Never hardened or held regardless of following directions. I was repairing a cracked fiberglass bumper. Waste of $10. Will have to get some actual fiberglass.
