Metal Grip

Our Price: £2.99
Metal Grip wire is used when repairing ski and snowboard bases, where gouges are deep enough to expose the core material or are along the ski or snowboard's metal edge.

The wire is a mix of P-Tex and heat-activated adhesives giving it a stronger bond at a lower temperature than P-Tex alone, making it the ideal first layer.

To apply Metal Grip, use a soldering iron (or similar) or the hot tip of a base repair gun. Allow to cool completely then finish the base repair with P-Tex wire or strip in the normal manner.

DO NOT put Metal Grip wire in a base repair gun.

Sold in 50cm (0.5m) lengths.

Metal Grip FAQ

Q. Is Metal Grip the same as P-Tex?
A. No; Metal Grip is a copolymer which means it is a combination of P-Tex and adhesives. The adhesives once activated help to create a much more robust bond to the metal or core materials used in the makeup of your skis/snowboard meaning your repairs should last longer.

Q. Is Metal Grip as hard as P-Tex?
A. No; it is softer than pure P-Tex material, for this reason, it is best used as a first or base layer. Finishing the repair with a layer of P-Tex will increase its durability.

Q. Do I need Metal Grip or can I just use a P-Tex candle to repair ski/snowboard bases?
A. You can use just a Ptex candle or similar for basic base repair scratches but on deeper gouges you may find that some of your repairs fall out quicker as P-Tex alone does not adhere to the steel edge or core material such as wood or fibreglass found in your skis and snowboard.

The product performed very well and after a couple of revisits to spot repair areas along the edge that maybe weren't totally cleaned of wax, I am very pleased with the results. Good adhesive properties and holding well to the metal edge up to now. Skis slalom skiing on dry slopes twice weekly and no burn back....

I used this for the first time on a large hole close to an edge. Although I didn't find it easy to apply with a soldering iron, it has stayed in ok over 5 days of use. Even alpine ski shop repairs have not lasted that long. I would find it much easier to use next time. Very pleased....
