Repair and sealing of a gutter or box gutter made of zinc, wood or lead


After several years in use, you sometimes have to deal with a leak in a gutter or box gutter made of lead or zinc. One solution is for the roofer to burn in some roofing material. However, this is not the ideal solution. A leaking gutter is a problem because it can cause the underlying wood to rot, weakening the strength of your gutter or box gutter. This puts you at risk of much higher repair costs. A leak usually occurs at a weak or damaged joint. Burning roofing or bitumen over this will not really solve the problem. A better and durable solution is to repair your gutter immediately. This is best done with an elastic permanent coating. This coating forms one entity with the zinc, lead or wood and makes it permanently waterproof.

Bakelite, the plastic of the 1900s invented and developed by the Belgian scientist Baekeland, can still be found today. Mostly in vintage objects that have been damaged. But Bakelite can be repaired without any problems with our advice and materials. Small repairs can be made quickly with one of our instant glues, with or without a little colouring. If pieces are missing, it is better to work with our 2-component epoxy glue. Add some talcum powder in addition to the dye and you will get a nice filling paste, which you can sand well afterwards. Is there actually a large piece missing? Then you can consider making a rubber mould of the good part and then pouring one of our quick-drying casting resins into this silicone rubber mould. This can be perfectly coloured by adding the right colouring and thus replacing the missing piece. If you only want to polish the Bakelite, then we also have a handy sanding and polishing paste, with which you can clean the surface and bring it back to its gloss in one go.

I am looking for a repair kit to fix a hole in my boot

H30/AZUR Polyester resin

Glass mat


PU glue

Sometimes things go wrong and your boot is damaged. Then it is important to find out what type of plastic your boot is made of. Not every plastic can be repaired just like that. So before you quickly buy a set of something in the car shop, we advise you to check whether it is a boot made of polyester or another thermoplastic. If it is made of polyester, then you are in luck. You can immediately continue working on it with liquid polyester and glass mat. In most cases this is the best recommendation. Just a little touch-up usually comes loose quite quickly due to the forces exerted on the boot. With liquid polyester and glass fibre you reinforce the whole and you are sure of a durable solution. If it is a thermoplastic, you are not so lucky, because then there are plastics that adhere well, such as PVC, polycarbonate and ABS, but there are also plastics to which you cannot adhere with any glue or repair putty, such as PE and PP. Here, unfortunately, your boot is for the scrap heap. In the other case, you can work with our PMMa or PU adhesives. These are permanently tough elastic and bond the plastic well enough to sometimes even bridge cracks. However, please ask our product specialists for detailed information on this.

Waterproofing metal and concrete water tank


Glass Tape

Epoxy Coating

Polyester Coating

Cracks and tears in concrete can cause your well to leak. Metal, in turn, can rust, corrode and also leak. Do you want to avoid such problems? Then it is best to protect it with a water-resistant coating.

Depending on the condition of your concrete or metal, you may need to repair the surface first. With concrete, you can do this with a quick cement or even better with a 2-component epoxy filler. This way, you can start finishing the surface.

In the case of metal, it is best to use a polyester-based putty. This may or may not need to be reinforced with glass fibres. A handy fibre-reinforced paste is V11. This can be coated after only 20 minutes.

As for the coating itself, it is best to use a completely odourless coating. After all, you do not want to be caught out by harmful vapours from the well.

With coatings, you have the choice of 1 or 2-component products. 1K means that your product is ready for use immediately. A disadvantage is the maximum layer thickness that can be applied in one go. This material needs 'air' to harden and the thicker you apply this layer, the slower it will dry.

With 2K, we speak of a resin and the hardener. You therefore have to add both together and stir them. Then you start a limited processing time. The strongest advantage is that you can apply the product in any desired layer thickness. Sometimes it is recommended to reinforce the seams. This is best done with a glass fabric tape. You place this between your two layers of coating. Our coatings are never hard, they keep their 'elasticity' which allows them to adapt perfectly to the substrate. Coatings are suitable for applications in permanent water contact. They are UV resistant and chemically resistant to most diluted acids and alkalis.

Repair transparent plastic dome

Acryl kit

Polish & Wax

Plexiglas or acrylic is a particularly tough plastic. However, it does happen that damage occurs as a result of impact. You can repair this easily and quickly with the handy V-Sure kits. In addition to the resin, these also contain glass fibre to reinforce any cracks. If your Plexi has only become dull or matt, you can get to work with the sanding and polishing paste. This 'toothpaste'-like mass can be applied manually or with a polishing machine. The paste removes scratches and restores the original shine to the surface. If the scratches are deeper (more than 0.5 mm), it is best to first smooth them out with fine sandpaper and then apply the polishing paste.

Repair my motorbike's petrol tank

Epoxy modeling paste

Metal petrol tanks sometimes rust through. This can lead to dangerous situations or to your old-timer being stranded on the side of the road. There are various options depending on the problem. If there are small holes, they can easily be plugged with epoxy kneading compound. If there are scratches or if the seams have come loose, you can reseal them with a liquid coating. It is best to use a 2-component coating for this. This can be poured into the closed tank as well as drummed out.
